Club sandwich

Club sandwich

A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a type of sandwich, always served as a double-decker. It is usually cut into quarters, and held together by cocktail sticks, either frilly or plain. The traditional club ingredients are turkey, ham, bacon, lettuce, and tomato. As with a BLT sandwich, the club sandwich is usually served on toasted bread, but untoasted bread can be used. Chicken is sometimes substituted for turkey. Mayonnaise is a common condiment, but honey mustard is sometimes used. Cheese is often added to the sandwich as well, usually Swiss, American, or Cheddar.

It is thought that the club sandwich was invented in an exclusive Saratoga Springs, New York gambling club in the late 19th Century by a maverick line cook named Danny Mears.
