Grilled club sandwiches: The classic sandwich gets a delicious upgrade. Click through for recipe!

When’s the last time you had a really good club sandwich?

If it’s been awhile, consider this your nudge. You don’t have to wait for a meal out to enjoy a great club sandwich. You can make them yourself at home tonight!

About The Recipe

If you’re not familiar, a club sandwich is a hearty sandwich featuring three meats (turkey, ham, and bacon), cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.

There are not two but three slices of bread in each sandwich.

Trust me: This sandwich will really fill you up!

This club sandwich recipe is a traditional club sandwich recipe with a few small (but delicious!) tweaks:

  • Instead of mayonnaise, a sweet-tangy sauce is used
  • Avocado is added
  • Instead of toasting the bread, you grill it a la grilled cheese

These tweaks improve an already-delicious sandwich.

Money-saving tip: Purchase pre-cooked bacon off the grocery store salad bar.

To Grill Or Not To Grill?

As the old saying goes: Why have a cheese sandwich when you can have grilled cheese?

And on that note – Why have a club sandwich when you can have a grilled club sandwich?

Grilling the sandwich in a frying pan – just like you prepare a grilled cheese – adds butteriness and indulgence to these sandwiches.

Since each club sandwich is made up of three slices of bread – two outer and one inner – you’ll need to toast the inner slice individually, before assembling the sandwiches. Follow the recipe instructions, below.

About The Sauce

The sauce on a traditional club sandwich is mayonnaise. But I think straight mayo is a bit too heavy on an already-hearty sandwich.

Instead, I like to use a sauce made up of equal parts mayonnaise and Dorothy Lynch Dressing & Condiment.Grilled club sandwiches, with a sweet-tangy sauce. Learn how to make these classic sandwiches at home!This sauce adds extra flavor – and lightens the sandwich up just a bit.

Grilled Club Sandwiches

Yield: 4 sandwiches

Ingredients

For sandwiches

  • 12 slices bread (cottage white works well)
  • 1 stick room temperature butter
  • 1/2 pound sliced turkey breast
  • 1/2 pound sliced deli ham
  • 4 slices Colby Jack cheese
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked
  • 2 tomatoes, thinly sliced

  • 8 iceberg lettuce leaves

For sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Dorthy Lynch Dressing & Condiment

Instructions

  1. Spread 4 slices of bread with butter on both sides. Grill in a frying pan over medium-high heat on both sides until bread is golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  2. Spread one side of the 8 remaining slices of bread with butter.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise and Dorothy Lynch Dressing & Condiment together in a small mixing bowl.
  4. To assemble sandwiches: Lay one slice of bread, butter side down. Spread generously with the sauce. Follow with a slice of cheese, tomato, turkey, toasted bread, ham, lettuce, avocado, more sauce, and bread.
