• Toasted Almond Butter & Marmalade Sandwich with Turkey Bacon

    March 19, 2014

    I saved the best for last! This recipe for a Toasted Almond Butter & Marmalade Sandwich with Turkey Bacon is one of my favorite recipes from my “Lighten Up Cozy Comfort Foods” that I created for the Almond Board of California.

    This quick and easy meal is a fun twist on your regular, old peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and I promise it’s even more delicious. Made with low-calorie whole wheat bread, turkey bacon, creamy almond butter, and orange marmalade, it won’t wreck your diet either. This warm, melt-y, and satisfying sandwich is less than 350 calories!

    Toasted Almond Butter & Marmalade Sandwich with Turkey Bacon

    Serves 1

    Ingredients

    • 2 slices turkey bacon
    • 2 slices low-calorie whole wheat bread (approximately 45 calories per slice)
    • 1 tablespoon creamy almond butter
    • 1 tablespoon orange marmalade

    Directions

    Cook turkey bacon as directed.

    Meanwhile, spread almond butter on one slice of bread and marmalade on the other.

    When turkey bacon is finished cooking, add it to sandwich.

    Toast sandwich in a toaster oven until bread is lightly browned and almond butter is slightly melted.

    Serve immediately.

    This looks yummy! Can you tell me your favorite brand low calorie wheat bread? I Have yet to find one that has any flavor. So I resort to having the yummy bread that is 110 calories, open faced. Which is way less fun than a real sandwich, KWIM?

    @Jessica: I used one from Trader Joe’s for this recipe, and it was good!

    @Jessica: Hi Jessica, I thought I would chime in because I use low calorie bread as well. I use Sarah Lee 45 calorie bread and I love it! Prior to discovering it, I used Sandwich Thins made by Arnold or Thomas. I think that Sarah Lee has a much better taste and is more like traditional bread than the which thins, which is why I made the switch.

    I’d probably choose a different flavor jam (maybe raspberry?) but I love the idea of adding turkey bacon, I bet it goes wonderfully with almond butter!

    almond butter and bacon? interesting….. i would have never thought to put those two together and i’m not sure it sounds super appealing… though sometimes those random combinations make for the best flavors!

    LOVE almond butter with blackcurrant jam! I’m a veggie but a good savoury addition is a fried egg and some smashed avocado! Yummers!

    Good one! I eat a lot of PBJs and whenever I take the time to toast the bread, instantly it seems more special. Thanks for sharing … I’m pretty sure I could make this for my husband for a dinner and he would be excited.

    wow, I was looking for something to make for breakfast this morning before work. We were out of eggs and did not have much in the fridge so I searched online for almond butter and this came up. It just so happened I had some marmalade and turkey bacon but had never thought to put them together, especially not with almond butter. I made this sandwich and not only is it delicious, it’s very filling. I was not able to finish the whole thing. I was satisfied and I did not feel like I undid my whole day with an unhealthy breakfast. Thank you!
