Looking for a sandwich that will make a statement for a meal or party gathering. Try the classic club sandwich, a toasted or un-toasted bread sandwich loaded with, bacon, turkey, ham, cheeses and topped with lettuce and tomatoes.

The club would be good with any meat or cheese of your choice, make it your own creation!

The club sandwich is a classic; it has been around for a long time. I remember them back in the 1950s when I was a young child. Today the club sandwich is still popular and delicious! Every time I see someone getting one in a restaurant I wish I had ordered one!

Make it Any Way You Little Heart Desires!


Make it toasted or not, any kind of bread, buns, mayo, mustard, ketchup, and your favorite meats and cheeses! Make it as big as you can get your mouth around! Whatever your little heart desires!

I think my heart would desire grilled chicken, guacamole or sliced avocados, onions, tomatoes, lettuce with mayo stacked on one of my homemade buns!

History of the Club Sandwich Recipe

The club sandwich is also known as a clubhouse sandwich. It seems the invention of the sandwich could go as far back as the late 19th century. The origin of the sandwich was in the U.S., but there is some debate about the place, but the state was New York. Some claim it was invented in Saratoga Springs, New York at a gambling club that entertained exclusive gentlemen.

Side dishes that are served today are French fries or potato chips. A side of fruit would be a good choice too!

The club sandwich is not for the weight watcher; it is packed with lots of calories and fat grams, but oh so delicious!
