Storing Leftovers

When it comes to storing the leftovers from this yummy clubhouse sandwich recipe, I often find that eating it fresh is the best bet.

While you can technically store the leftovers in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge until the next day, there is a very high probability that the bread is going to get soggy. 

It won’t really affect the flavor, but the texture will be different. If you’re not a fan of that possibility, then you can put the sandwich ingredients on new bread the next day or eat it all in one sitting so that you don’t have leftovers to store.

Tips for Success

To create a sturdy sandwich, put the tomato in between the layer of bacon and lettuce so that it keeps everything tucked together nicely and it won’t slide off when you bite into it. 

You have the option to toast the bread or not. Toasting may help it not get as soggy, so it’s up to you what you’d like to do.

Substitutions

Have fun with this ham and turkey club sandwich! Change up the type of meat, change up the type of cheese and some spices – and just have fun!

Classic Club Sandwich FAQs

What makes a club sandwich a club sandwich?

It’s all about the layers of meat and cheese and the way that it’s cut. You’ll also find that most clubhouse sandwiches have toothpicks in the halves or quarters to hold all that goodness together. 

Why does a club sandwich have three pieces of bread?

While this does help with the appearance of looking like a “grand” sandwich, it’s also strategic to help keep the pieces of bread dry by having some separation between all the other ingredients.

What does club stand for in club sandwich?

Yes, the “club” in the sandwich is actually an acronym! CLUB sandwich actually means “chicken & lettuce under bacon.” The more you know! 

Of course, the more toppings you add, the further away you’ll get from that actual club name.
