Most often associated with resorts and country clubs, the club sandwich features multiple layers of bread between sliced meats and other ingredients. The most common club sandwich features turkey and bacon as its main components.
A classic turkey and bacon club sandwich starts with a foundation of toasted white bread covered with mayonnaise and topped with sliced turkey breast and lettuce. Next, another layer of toasted white bread with mayonnaise is added, followed by more lettuce, tomatoes and four slices of bacon. A final slice of toasted white bread tops the sandwich, which is then sliced into wedges.
