classic club sandwich recipe

The club sandwich is also known as a clubhouse sandwich.  It most likely got its name because of its popularity at resorts and country clubs.

The club sandwich is made with your choice of poultry (such as chicken, turkey or duck), crispy bacon, crunchy lettuce, juicy ripe tomato, and creamy mayonnaise. It can be made with double layers, with an extra slice of bread separating the layers, and held together with hors d’oeuvre sticks.

Toasted bread or not, it is your preference, but this sandwich is the perfect combination of flavors, making it a meal all in itself. The club sandwich has been enjoyed by generation after generation and is certainly here to stay.

This sandwich makes a great “Road Trip” sandwich.  Just prepare the ingredients and pack individually, to assure crispiness and freshness, that will last for hours, in a cooler.

I was raised in and around an Italian family. All my life I cooked and everyone around me cooked. It was my life and still is.  In 2013 I had to go gluten-free for health reasons. I was devastated to learn that I can no longer enjoy bread and pasta, that I was so used to eating every day. Can you imagine an Italian girl not eating bread or pasta? During the last few years, I have experimented with all kinds of different products. Searching for a good tasting bread has been a struggle because there was not much available. I was super excited to find Three Bakers Rye Style bread while visiting CT, my home State. I was even more excited to learn it is available locally here in FL. It is absolutely amazing!
