A Club Sandwich is one of the most iconic sandwiches on any menu! Layers of ham, bacon and turkey with juicy tomatoes, crisp lettuce and cheddar cheese create the perfect bite!

We love to enjoy this sandwich alongside some delicious baked french fries or even some crispy fried dill pickles on the side!

Restaurants and diners of all shapes and sizes (and prices!), and country clubs, schools, resorts, even hospitals have some version of a club sandwich recipe on their menu! And who can blame them? It is delicious, and looks so yummy too!

What is a Club Sandwich?

Probably the most obvious sign that you’re getting a club sandwich is the unique way it is stacked with three layers of bread and then cut into quarters and secured with a toothpick.

What are Club Sandwich Ingredients? The classic club sandwich has been around for generations because it is chock-full of the things we love best all served up on some soft sandwich bread. It’s almost like a BLT with ham and turkey!

  • Turkey
  • Bacon
  • Ham
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Mayo

And of course you can make a chicken club sandwich with leftover baked chicken! And why stop at white bread? Try some sourdough, whole wheat or even rye. Make a fancy California club sandwich and use sliced avocados, fancy microgreens and some stone ground mustard? Any way is the right way when it comes to this sandwich!

How to Make a Club Sandwich

Making a turkey club sandwich can be as easy or as elaborate as you want! With a few simple steps you can create a basic club sandwich, add a few extra layers or toppings and you can dress this sandwich up as much as you’d like!

  1. First Layer: Spread the mayo on one side of lightly toasted bread. Add turkey, tomato and cheese (be sure to put the tomatoes in the middle so the bread doesn’t get soggy).
  2. Second Layer: Layer ham, bacon and lettuce.
  3. Top with the final slices of bread, secure with cute sandwich picks and cut into quarters.

Optional Extras: In the second layer, this is where you will add the lettuce add in your own favorites! Slices of avocado, hard boiled eggs, a smear of mustard… the possibilities are endless.

Serve with pretty much any side dish you love!  Cold potato salad, dill pickle pasta salad, or some potato chips and a chilly beverage and you’ve got a sandwich fit for any occasion!

  1. That looks amazing, will definitely be making that! Ok I feel like this is a silly question, but what kind of turkey did you use? Did you slice leftover turkey breast or is that from the deli? Thanks!5 stars

    1. You can use either, Kara. If we have leftover turkey it is great to add but often we just use deli turkey.
