Classic Triple Decker BLT Turkey Club


I love a good challenge.  Especially one that involves food.  Like trying to fit my mouth around this triple-decker bacon lettuce tomato turkey club sandwich.  I love club sandwiches.  I love how the simplicity of these five things can make such a delicious sandwich!   Good quality mayo, bacon is crisp, turkey is flavorful, and lettuce and tomatoes are fresh. But the best part of the sandwich is the perfectly toasted bread. 

 Classic Triple Decker BLT Turkey Club

White bread
good quality mayonnaise
iceberg lettuce leaves
slices ripe tomatoes
salt and black pepper
slices crispy cooked bacon
thick sliced roasted turkey
frill toothpicks

Toast the bread in a toaster, or under a broiler on both sides. Cut the lettuce leaves in half crosswise and form into neat stacks.  Set aside.

To make a triple-decker club
 On a clean work surface, arrange 3 bread slices in a row. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise over 1 side of each bread slice. Place a lettuce stack on top of the first bread slice, top with 2 tomato slices, and season with salt and pepper to taste. 

Place 2 slices bacon over the tomatoes (broken to fit neatly if necessary) and top with 1/8 of the turkey (without letting any hang over the sides). Season the turkey with salt and pepper, to taste. Repeat with the second bread slice. Carefully place the second layered bread slice on top of the first layered bread, turkey side-up. Cover with the third bread slice, mayonnaise side-down.

Pin the sandwich’s layers together by piercing them with 4 frill picks or cocktail swords through the top bread slice, in 4 places in a diamond-like pattern, all the way to the bottom bread slice. Repeat entire process with the remaining ingredients to form 3 more sandwiches.

Using a serrated knife cut each sandwich, diagonally, into 4 triangular pieces (each piece should be secured in the center with a pick or sword). Serve with potato chips and pickles.
