The Classic Club Sandwich

The Classic Club Sandwich
4 from 5 ratings
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.Click here to see 10 Classic Summer Sandwich RecipesClick here for 30 Sandwich Recipes Better Than Mom Used to Makeclick here for The Best Sandwich in Every State Gallery
