  • Looking at the ingredent list it looks like this is for the whole sandwich bread and all, right? Do u use light turkey or full fat? Sounds great! - 2/10/09

    Yes, the nutritional information is for the entire sandwich, bread and all. Of course you can alter it to reduce the amount of calories. I find that it's a very filling sandwich. Oh, and I normally use 93/7 ground turkey. If you don't mind the extra calories, try using pork, it's so good!
