The classic club sandwich has been spotted on menus since 1899, and there’s a good reason why it has lasted so long. These sandwiches are deliciously filling and are somewhat healthy, and they can really hit the spot when you’re hungry. You can buy them in diners and sandwich shops all over, or you can even make them at home.
The traditional classic club sandwich is generally served with lettuce, tomato, turkey, bacon and mayonnaise, and the bread is almost always toasted. Many people prefer to enjoy their classic club sandwiches with cheese, and some add even more substance to their sandwiches by adding a third piece of bread in the middle.
For those who want to make their sandwiches a bit healthier, it’s a good idea to skip the bacon and mayonnaise or to opt for turkey bacon. Some also swap out more traditional bread options for healthy wheat bread.
Club sandwiches are also perfect for tweaking to your tastes. For example, you can opt for ham instead of turkey, or you might choose to add additional condiments. Many people prefer to enjoy their club sandwiches with a side of French fries or their favorite type of potato chips.
