We all know how to make a peanut butter sandwich or even a hamburger. But if you want to make something bigger than comes in three layers, why don’t you learn how to make the quick and easy clubhouse sandwich recipe.
The clubhouse sandwich has been around for a very long time. It is believed that this originated in club cars of passenger trains. But regardless of where it came from, there are certain ingredients that this meal will always have.
This includes toasted white bread, some chicken crispy bacon and few vegetables. If you don’t have chicken, you can try changing it for either turkey or shrimp instead.
To start this recipe, you need the following ingredients so check your refrigerator and bring out at least 6 stalks of celery, 2 onions, 8 slices of bacon, 12 slices of toasted white bread, 2 pounds of chicken, 2 medium sizes tomatoes and 4 lettuce leaves.
When you have everything ready, you start by cooking the chicken and then let it cool after 25 minutes. As you know, the chicken that is used for the clubhouse sandwich is turned into chicken salad which is why you have to mix it with other ingredients.
Once the salad is ready, it is time to cook the bacon until it is crisp and brown which should be done within 4 to 6 minutes. You better transfer the bacon to a paper towel first to drain the excess oil which is not good for those who have high cholesterol.
The last thing to do now is to put everything together. You get a piece of bread and then spread the chicken salad on the surface. Put some bacon, tomato or lettuce in between before putting the next layer of bread over it and then doing it one more time until you have three layers of bread.
With that, you now have a clubhouse sandwich. With the number of ingredients you used, you can share this with 3 other guests. Remember, a clubhouse sandwich has to be cut into quarters and then secured with a toothpick. That way, the sandwich won’t fall apart before it reaches your mouth. You can also put some side orders in beside the clubhouse sandwich by adding chips or fries.
Now that you know how to make a clubhouse sandwich, you can have this anytime you want rather than ordering it from the restaurant. What is even better is that you can do this at a much cheaper price especially if some of the ingredients are not readily available because you can replace these with something else.
It doesn’t matter where the clubhouse sandwich came from. What is important is that you know how to make it so can enjoy it and share with others.
