The Technique

Club Sandwich

A Classic Club Sandwich touts just about everything you could want in a filling lunch. Ham, turkey, bacon, two types of cheese, green leaf lettuce & tomato that is double stacked & comforting. What makes one extra special is when it’s prepared on homemade bread & in this case, I chose Whole Wheat Pain de Mie, a honey version that’s a staple in our home but it would be just as delicious on Farmhouse White Bread. Use this tutorial as a refresher course to make a sandwich classic your family is certain to love.

Flipping the sandwich once cut so that all of the layers are exposed is an iconic way to serve this irresistible sandwich.

Create an “X” using 2 medium-sized wooden skewers over the sandwich. This will be the template as to where the cuts will need to be made with a serrated knife.

With the “X” in place, insert 4 wooden skewers in the center of each of the triangles. Remove the “X” template, then cut the sandwich on the diagonal twice. Transfer the sandwich wedges to a plate.
