A good long while back I was introduced to the 'Unwich' which is a sandwich... minus the bread and wrapped up in lettuce instead; keeping it a handheld portable sandwich style meal without the most of the carbs or the guilt. That's right, we're stripping the sandwich down to the nitty-gritty and I promise you'll thank me later for it.
One of my all-time favorite sandwiches is and always will be a club sandwich. So, that's my go-to for this naked unwich today. Who needs the bread anyway? I'm getting to keep all my favorite parts; bacon, turkey, cheese, and even avocado!
For being low-carb this sandwich is pretty filling, which is why I decided to cut in half and set it to 2 servings rather than the one giant that I couldn't seem to finish myself. I've left the bacon as an optional add-in (especially for those doing keto) because it's pretty un-needed but always wanted.
Another good thing about this sandwich is that, other than the avocado spread, it's pretty meal-prep friendly. Which means you can make one or two ahead of time (omitting the avocado until later) and enjoy any day of the week for lunch!
So, there you have it. A clean and classic sandwich that's been stripped down to its birthday suit.
I like to serve mine with some pickle spears or even other fresh veggies. You can't go wrong with more veggies on your plate!
