For many Weight Watchers, a turkey sandwich is the gold standard. A basic version counts as two slices of bread (5 Smart Points) and 4 ounces of deli turkey (2 Smart Points). Add in some lettuce, tomato or other vegetables and you have a pretty satisfying meal. Ordering a turkey sandwich at lunch winds up consuming 7 points from my daily allowance of 34. Plenty left over for dinner and breakfast.

But in the hands of some restaurant chefs, the humble turkey sandwich becomes a minefield. Consider these turkey sandwiches:

  • Arby’s: The Roast Turkey Ranch & Bacon sandwich (24 Smart Points)
  • Blimpie: Turkey & Provolone sub (large, 24 Smart Points)
  • Bruegger’s: Turkey Toscana on Hearty White Hot Panini (19 Smart Points)
  • California Pizza Kitchen: Club Turkey Sandwich with Traditional Ciabatta (19 Smart Points)
  • Cosi: Bacon Turkey & Cheddar Melt (20 Smart Points)
  • Denny’s: Club Sandwich (19 Smart Points)
  • Firehouse Subs: Turkey Bacon Ranch Specialty Sub (41 Smart Points large; 26 medium)
  • Subway: Footlong Turkey, Bacon and Avocado (23 Smart Points)
