Club Sandwiches

These are the best sandwiches ever and pretty simple to make.  They are easy enough to have on a lazy Saturday afternoon, but impressive enough to serve to guests.  I have been making a version of these for years and have tweaked the recipe enough to now call it my own.  You have to try these they are delicious! You can broil them in the oven or grill them to melty perfection.  A perfect summer meal!

Club Sandwich
From: Meg @ back pocket creations
Yields: 3 Servings
Time: 20-25 minutes
  • 1/3 C mayonnaise
  • 1/3 C sour cream
  • 2-3 green onions chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 baguette
  • 1/4-1/2 pound of sliced turkey or ham or a mixture of both
  • 6 slices cooked bacon (I use turkey bacon)
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 3 pieces of sliced cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to broil or preheat grill on medium-low heat.
  2. Mix mayo, sour cream, onions, cumin, and chili powder together in a small bowl
  3. Slice the bread length wise.
  4. Spread mayo mixture on both sides of the bread.  On bottom half layer turkey, bacon, avocado, and then cheese.
  5. Cover with top half and cut sandwich crosswise into 1 1/2 inch pieces  Using  metal skewers or  bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water, thread each piece of sandwich on to the skewers.
  6. If cooking in the oven place the skewers on to a cookie sheet and put into the oven.  Make sure the rack is in the middle of the oven, at least 6 inches away from the heat.  Cook for 5 minutes, pull skewers out and rotate a 1/2 turn, put back in the oven for about 3 minutes.  Serve
  7. If cooking on a grill, place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 5-10 minutes rotating the skewers once.
