The Classic Club Sandwich

It's given a kick from pesto mayonnaise
Club Sandwich
Judith Hannenmann

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.

Ingredients

For the pesto mayonnaise

  • 3 slices white bread, toasted
  • 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pesto
  • 2 leaves iceberg lettuce
  • 3 slices tomato
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 2 Ounces sliced turkey

Directions

For the pesto mayonnaise

In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and pesto. Spread the mayonnaise-pesto on 1 side of 2 slices of bread. 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. 

Sandwich Shopping Tip

Look to the deli for cold-cuts and cheeses sliced to order; they'll taste fresher than their vacuum-sealed counterparts.

Sandwich Cooking Tip

For a more pronounced flavor, try drizzling your bread lightly with some olive oil and grilling it.
