This is how you build the perfect club sandwich (and these are tasty variants)

Must Try

Few sandwiches are as iconic as the club sandwich. The sandwiches cut into triangles may not have the hippest image, but they are simply delicious when made well. And do you want to build it to perfection? Good news: we’ve gathered our best tips together.

Classic club sandwich

Basically, a club sandwich consists of two or three slices of mayo spread white bread (lightly toasted), iceberg lettuce, tomato, crispy bacon and slices of turkey. How do you make it at its best? By selecting the tastiest ingredients, first of all. The best white bread from the bakery around the corner (and not too thickly sliced!), homemade mayo, coeur de boeuf tomatoes in season and meat from the butcher.

The thickness of the ingredients is also important. In any case, try to keep everything in balance and strive for an even distribution. Also, don’t overdo the amounts per ingredient: you want the ingredients to stay neatly in place when you sink your teeth into them. Build all those things together nicely and cut that club sandwich into triangles, possibly held together by toothpicks.

Variants of club sandwich

Vega club sandwich

So delicious, a classic club sandwich, but unfortunately not vegetarian. If you prefer, you can either turn to the 1-to-1 meat substitutes from the supermarket, or just come up with your own genius combination. We are, for example, a fan of egg salad with avocado . And as a replacement for the bacon you could also use tempeh. Meet tempeh bacon: a delicious and quick meat substitute .

Maak ‘n toffee mayo

Of all the components to vary with, the mayo of a club sandwich is perhaps the nicest. You can easily give it a kick with some extra mustard, a little sambal or a squeeze of sriracha.

You can also go in a fresher direction by adding lime (grated and a little juice). Do you like a smoky aroma? Pimp your mayo with some liquid smoke, smoked sea salt or smoked paprika.

Indian club sandwich…

Nice idea: on Food52 we found an Indian-inspired club sandwich . They build it with, among other things, coriander chutney, chaat masala and white cheese. Can’t help but be delicious.

…or from another country

Although you can of course extend that principle to other world cuisines just as well. Do you prefer a Mexican-inspired version? Grab those black beans, guacamole and chipotle in adobo. Fan of Japanese cuisine? Replace the meat in the classic version with salmon and stir some wasabi into the mayo. Prefer an Italian touch? Pesto, serrano ham and sun-dried tomatoes are your best friends.

And so you see that you can make that good old club sandwich quite easily to your liking.
