A Club Sandwich is one of the most iconic sandwiches on any menu, anywhere! Layers of ham, bacon and turkey with juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce and cheddar cheese create the perfect bite! It is astonishing to me that I have gone thirty years of life without ever trying one, until a few weeks ago. We were out on the boat and came across this cute little restaurant on the water with a dock for you to park at and go in for lunch. I’m not really a sandwich lover but Tyson ordered the club and it looked so darn good I had to have a bite. Love at first bite.
Restaurants and diners of all shapes and sizes (and prices!), and country clubs, schools, resorts, even hospitals have some version of a club sandwich recipe on their menu! And who can blame them? It is delicious, and looks so yummy too!
What is a Club Sandwich?
Probably the most obvious sign that you’re getting a club sandwich is the unique way it is stacked with three layers of bread and then cut into quarters and secured with a toothpick.
What are Club Sandwich Ingredients? The classic club sandwich has been around for generations because it is chock-full of the things we love best all served up on some soft sandwich bread. It’s almost like a BLT with ham and turkey!
And of course you can make a chicken club sandwich with leftover baked chicken! And why stop at white bread? Try some sourdough, whole wheat or even rye. Make a fancy California club sandwich and use sliced avocados, fancy micro-greens and some stone ground mustard? I am learning that any way is the right way when it comes to this sandwich!
