Jacob Jenkins 1 English 111 Garabaldi 06/21/10 The Perfect Club Sandwich When I think of the best club sandwich, I remember a place my father took me as a child. The sandwich was as big as the plate it was served on. It was lightly toasted, filled with garden fresh vegetables and deli fresh meat. Leaving the establishment with an extremely full stomach was an exciting feeling I looked forward to every time we drove in the parking lot. Below I will guide you on a fun illed adventure I call making the perfect club sandwich. You will need to visit your favorite market for the following ingredients: 1) Sourdough bread 2) One small container of spicy brown mustard 3) Mayonnaise 4) Romaine lettuce 5) One-half pound thinly sliced oven roasted turkey 6) One –half pound thinly sliced honey ham 7) Tomato 8) One package of bacon 9) One container of sandwich sliced dill pickles 10) One package of swiss cheese Jenkins 2 Once you have these ingredients you may begin to assemble the sandwich like this: 1) Place 6 slices of bacon in a heavy skillet cooking over medium high heat until evenly brown.
Do not overcook bacon as this will make it extremely hard and unappetizing. Drain bacon on a paper towel. 2) Place 3 slices of bread in the toaster. Once bread is slightly toasted place them on the countertop. 3) Put 1 tablespoon of mustard and three tablespoons of mayonnaise in a small bowl. Blend mixture until you have a smooth consistency. 4) Spread mixture on each slice of bread evenly. 5) On the bottom slice place 1 slice of cheese, 2 dill pickles, 1 piece of lettuce, 1 slice of tomato, 2 slices of turkey, 2 slices of ham, and 3 slices of bacon. ) Place second slice of bread on top of the first and follow previous step. 7) Then place last slice of bread on the top. 8) Place sandwich on a plate and slice diagonally. 9) Enjoy! I know you have probably had a club sandwich before at some random restaurant. After you experience this monstrosity of meat and cheese other sandwiches will seem bland and boring. I am certain if you follow these directions you will be able to enjoy this delicious classic I call the perfect club sandwich.
