Club Sandwich

Club Sandwich
Staff Writer
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.

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.
