A Delicious EASY & QUICK Diet Sandwich Recipe Featuring Healthy Ingredients

The Big Easy, a Diet Sandwich Recipe

We have used Honey Wheat bread in this delicious, quick recipe that can fit into any healthy weight loss plan.

The Recipe Ingredients

You will need the following ingredients to prepare this low fat sandwich:

few slices of your favorite lean ham
Honey Wheat Bread, or your favorite bread
3 Teaspoons of Light-Colored REAL brown sugar
2 pineapple rings, drained
no calorie butter spray (refrigerator kind)
non-stick cooking spray

How to Prepare This Toaster Sandwich Recipe

Spray bread thoroughly with refrigerated no calorie butter spray. This will take the place of high calorie typically used in preparing toasted sandwiches - such as butter or margarine which can add 100 or more calories to the sandwich.

Slowly toast on one side in your pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Again, you want your bread to be hard and crispy which will bring out a 'buttery' taste on the crust as well as a crunch to the sandwich when you bite into it.

Place bread on serving plate (tops down) and add ham to the pan and heat thoroughly. When hot, sprinkle on 1 1/2 teaspoons of the brown sugar and stir to coat. You can use the dark brown sugar if you prefer but of course it will make the ham have a darker tint.

While ham is warming, mix 1 teaspoon of the no calorie butter spray with remaining brown sugar and spread onto the backside of the toast. This will form a delicious glaze for the sandwich and add flavor without adding a plethora of calories.

Next, remove ham from pan and transfer onto one slice of the bread. Quickly warm the pineapple slices in the pan, remove and place on top of ham. Add other slice of toast and enjoy!

This delicious toaster sandwich recipe contains about 300 calories and minimal fat.

As a note, bread tends to get a bad wrap where weight loss plans are concerned.

Eating bread certainly won't make an individual overweight; however - feasting on too much bread will but only if caloric intake excess the body's caloric needs for the day.

In that event, excess calories become stored within the naughty fat cells and they can only be emptied when our body's energy needs exceed the amount of physical energy as well as the foods we have spent or consumed throughout the day.

This is how weight loss occurs - pulling reserved energy OR stored energy from the fat cells. Not by cutting bread or other carbohydrates from the daily diet. Related Diet Bites Article: Additional Sandwich Recipes
