Born from an elusive past, the club sandwich (like all great things in history) was supposedly created accidentally by a ravenous man in the late 1800s. Sure, the first sandwich may have been a crude amalgamation of bread and cold meats. But today, the club sandwich has evolved into several diners’ signature, staple dish. This multi-layered, flavor-packed luncheon special is easy to make and even easier to customize. This recipe is from a member of our Culinary Content Network, Judith Hannemann, and is given a kick of spice from a pesto mayonnaise.

Next, layer ingredients on top of 1 mayonnaise-lathered piece as follows: lettuce, sliced tomatoes, bacon, 1 slice of toasted bread without the mayonnaise pesto, turkey meat. Top with the other slice of mayonnaise-lathered piece, mayonnaise down, slice in half, and serve.
