There’s nothing better than a clubhouse sandwich on a summers day sitting on the porch in the sunshine. The clubhouse sandwich is such a classic restaurant menu item, dating back as far as 1899! (Thanks Wikipedia.) The classic club sandwich calls for turkey however you can make it with anything from ham to roast beef. I made mine with roast beef however you can swap it for whatever! Maybe not macaroni loaf or like…head cheese though. Stick with the basic lunch meats.
Clubhouse Sandwich Recipe
Fry your bacon – it’s best to use really crispy/borderline burnt bacon on your sandwich. Toast 3 slices of bread. You can use white or rye but I wouldn’t use anything else. I made 3 sandwiches and 1 of them was on white bread and to be honest I think the clubhouse on white bread looked the most appetizing.
Spread a generous layer of mayonnaise on one piece of bread, stack tomato, roast beef, butter lettuce and bacon. Repeat with the next slice of bread. It’s a fairly simple process.
I did enjoy my sandwich on rye bread however for some reason the white bread seemed to handle it better… my clubhouse on rye actually kind of fell apart.
I mean it’s MESSY so that must mean it’s good, right?!
