Traditional club sandwich

By Food E Fare

A traditional club sandwich, often simply referred to as a "club," is a classic American sandwich that is known for its triple-decker structure and combination of layered ingredients. It typically consists of three slices of toasted bread, with various fillings and condiments stacked between them. The club sandwich is often enjoyed as a lunchtime favorite in diners, cafes, and restaurants. Here's a basic recipe for a traditional club sandwich:


  • 3 slices of bread (white, whole wheat, or your preference)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard (optional)
  • Turkey slices
  • Ham slices
  • Bacon strips, cooked
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices
  • Cheese slices (commonly Swiss or cheddar)
  • Toothpicks (for securing the layers)


Toast the Bread:

  • Toast all three slices of bread until they are golden brown and crisp.

Prepare Condiments:

  • Spread mayonnaise on one side of each slice of bread. Optionally, you can also add mustard to enhance the flavor.

Layer the First Slice:

  • Place the first slice of bread, mayo side up, on a cutting board or plate.

Add Turkey and Lettuce:

  • Layer turkey slices over the first slice of bread. Add a few lettuce leaves on top of the turkey.

Add the Second Slice:

  • Place the second slice of bread, mayo side up, on top of the lettuce.

Add Ham, Bacon, and Tomato:

  • Layer ham slices over the second slice of bread. Add cooked bacon strips and tomato slices.

Add the Third Slice:

  • Place the third slice of bread, mayo side down, on top of the tomato.

Secure with Toothpicks:

  • Insert toothpicks into the club sandwich to help hold the layers together. You can place them strategically to make it easier to cut the sandwich into quarters.

Cut and Serve:

  • Use a sharp knife to cut the club sandwich diagonally, creating four triangular quarters.


  • Arrange the quarters on a plate and serve the traditional club sandwich immediately.
