  • 1 teaspoon  mayonnaise (preferably Kewpie)

Ah, the club sandwich. Is there a better exmple of how meat and vegetables should be placed between pieces of bread? Turkey, bacon, lettuce, and tomato. Some mayo and maybe a side of coleslaw, and you have what has become a quintessential American meal (one that, by some accounts was invented in a Saratoga Springs gambling club in the late 19th century by a line cook named Danny Mears). So how can you improve on something that's already pretty perfect? Add avocado — slices, and also as a spread. That's right, smashing some avocado and mxing in a little mayo, salt, and pepper and applying it to each side of the toasted bread adds another dimension to the sandwich.

Directions

Halve and pit avocado. Reserve one half. Slice the other half thinly and mix with a teaspoon of mayonnaise (preferably Kewpie), salt, and pepper. Toast 3 slices of bread lightly, cut off the crusts, and spread the mayo-avocado mixture on one side of 2 slices, and both sides of the last.

Thickly layer the roast turkey on the bottom slice (one with only one side covered with the spread). On top, place the slice that has the spread on both sides. Cut romaine to fit the sandwich and layer several pieces on top. Layer the sliced avocado, and 4 slices of roma tomato so that tomato covers every part of the square. Layer the slices of bacon the same way, so that in every bite you will get tomato and bacon. Slice in half or quarters.
