Copycat Denny's Club Sandwich

I got a new cookbook . . . . I know . . . . It's like the fourth one in one month. . . . but I just couldn't resist. . . .  

. . . I went to Kohl's the other day.  I usually try to avoid that store, because I NEVER EVER leave without buying something.  Usually something in the kitchen section.  They have soooooo many fun things, but they aren't cheap.  I had some pants I had to return, so of course I couldn't just go straight to the back and return the pants, I had to swing by the kitchen section.  I saw this cookbook sitting on the shelf and I picked it up and flipped through it and I saw quite a few recipes that sounded amazing.  I told myself . . . no, you DO NOT need another cookbook, so I started to lower my hand to put it back on the shelf, then I flipped it over, just to see how much it was . . . I knew it would probably be around $20, but to my surprise it was $5!  I picked it back up, because - come on - anything is worth $5, right?  I also picked up some place mats and a mini dutch oven.  See, I told you that store is dangerous!!!

This sandwich is a copy cat Denny's recipe for their club sandwich.  It is a triple-decker sandwich loaded with turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato!  It turned out very good.  If you don't want the added slice of bread in the middle, it would taste just as delicious with only two slices.  

Denny's Club Sandwich 

6 slices toasted white bread
Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
6 oz. deli-sliced turkey breast
4 iceberg lettuce leaves
4-6 slices cooked bacon
4 tomato slices

Spread about 1 1/2 teaspoons Mayo or Miracle Whip on one side of each toasted bread slice.  Arrange the turkey on one slice of toast.  Tear or fold one iceberg lettuce leaf to fit on the sliced turkey.  Stack on another slice of toast with the Mayo side facing up.  Break 2 or 3 slices of cooked bacon to fit on top of the second slice of toast.  Arrange two tomato slices to fit on top of the bacon.  Tear or fold the second lettuce leaf to fit on top of the tomato.  Top off the sandwich with the last piece of toast turned with the Mayo-coated side facing down.  

Pierce the sandwich with four toothpicks between the corners so that when the sandwich is sliced twice from corner to corner with a serrated knife, the toothpicks wind up in the center of each of the four slices.  (I only sliced mine once from corner to corner).  Repeat with remaining ingredients.  Yield: 2 sandwiches.

  2. Club sandwiches are one of my all-time favorite comfort foods! (minus the tomato-not a fan of raw tomato) That's always my 'default order at a new diner type restaurant! ...and MUST be white toast...not wheat!
