Ham and Turkey Club Sandwich

This Ham and Turkey Club Sandwich is piled high with ham, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and a homemade honey-mustard mayonnaise. It’s perfect for lunch, but it’s also substantial enough for a quick and easy dinner!

The club sandwich is my most favorite sandwich ever! It’s like a kicked-up, super-sized BLT (my second favorite). There’s a reason this classic stacked sandwich can be found on just about any diner or restaurant menu: it looks amazing, and it’s absolutely delicious!

For many years, David and I ran a retail store. The hours were long and crazy, and lunch was always whatever we could grab from take-out. A restaurant across the street had the best turkey clubs, and that was my go-to lunch at least once a week.

I never got sick of them!

One of the reasons why they were so good is that they were perfectly proportioned – not too much of any one ingredient – and they were not over-stuffed. I want to enjoy my sandwich, not get angry because I can’t fit it in my mouth.

I make my club sandwiches the same way – tall and full of yummy stuff but manageable. Since I love turkey and David loves ham, I do one layer of turkey and one layer of ham. I also add a little extra bacon because…BACON!

And since mustard goes so nicely with ham, I slather the bread with a honey-mustard mayonnaise that is the star of the show and really brings all those flavors together so deliciously!

Tips & Tidbits:

  • Cook your bacon however you like to do it (in a pan, in the oven, or in the microwave). Having a stash of pre-cooked bacon in the fridge or freezer will cut down your prep time!
  • Just lightly toast the bread. You want it semi-soft rather than crunchy so that it doesn’t fall apart when bitten into.
  • Don’t skimp on the honey-mustard mayonnaise. Use it all! Besides being delicious, it also keeps the sandwich from being too dry.
  • Let the bread cool off after toasting. Warm bread = soggy lettuce.
  • Want to trim the calories a bit? Remove that middle piece of bread. You probably won’t even miss it! You could also reduce the amount of bacon.
  • Feel free to add a slice or two of cheese if that’s your thing!
  • Toothpicks make it easier to cut the sandwich into quarters without it falling apart. If you use them but don’t have any of those extra-long, colored-frilly-top ones, you might want to remove them after cutting – or just be sure to tell whoever you’re serving the sandwich to that there are toothpicks in there (they can be hard to see).
  • For a classic turkey club, replace the ham with turkey and use plain mayonnaise.

I love serving these clubs with a side of crispy oven fries, oven-roasted potato wedges, potato chips, or a bowl of soup – and maybe a pickle on the side too.

Depending on who you’re serving, their appetites, and any side dishes you’ve got, one sandwich can serve one to two people. If we’re eating this for lunch, David and I usually split one, but for dinner, each of us can easily eat a whole sandwich.

I hope you try this Ham and Turkey Club Sandwich recipe and love it as much as I do. Thanks for visiting today!

Ingredients

  • 3 slices bread, any kind
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 slices deli oven-roasted turkey breast, or about 1½ ounces total (depending on how thick the slices are)
  • 2 slices deli ham, or about 1½ ounces total (depending on how thick the slices are)
  • 2 large pieces lettuce, I use Romaine or iceberg
  • 4 large slices tomato
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Lightly toast the bread and let it cool while you prepare the other ingredients. You want the bread to be semi-soft here. If the bread is too crisp and dry, you risk the sandwich falling apart when you bite into it. Allowing the bread to cool off will prevent the lettuce from wilting.
  • Cook the bacon according to the package directions by whichever method you prefer; drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the honey, mustard, and mayonnaise until well-combined.
  • Spread the honey-mustard mayonnaise evenly on the three slices of bread.
  • Take one of the pieces of bread, mayonnaise side up, and top it in this order: turkey (fold in half, if needed, to fit), one piece of lettuce, two slices of tomato, salt and pepper, 2 pieces of bacon (broken in half, if needed, to fit).
  • Top with another piece of bread, mayonnaise side up, and top it in this order: ham (fold in half, if needed, to fit), one piece of lettuce, two slices of tomato, salt and pepper, 2 pieces of bacon (broken in half, if needed, to fit).
  • Top with the third piece of bread, mayonnaise side down. Cut the sandwich into quarters. To make cutting the sandwich easier and to keep the quarters together, you can use toothpicks. Put one in the middle of each corner of the sandwich and cut. I usually remove the toothpicks after cutting. If you serve the club with toothpicks and you don't have any of those extra-long, colored-frilly-top ones, just be sure to tell whoever you're serving the sandwich to that there are toothpicks in there (they can be hard to see).
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Depending on who you’re serving, their appetites, and any side dishes you’ve got, one sandwich can serve one to two people.
  • Want to trim the calories a bit? Remove that middle piece of bread. You probably won’t even miss it! You could also reduce the amount of bacon.
  • For a classic turkey club, replace the ham with turkey and use plain mayonnaise.
