    Double Smoked Ham & Smoked Turkey Club Sandwich (Bear Style)

    Back in the old days, when I worked at Bethlehem Steel, whenever I got Middle shift (4:30 to 1:00AM), my 9:00 PM Lunch just didn’t hold me over all the time. So I often stopped at an all-night diner along the way, so I wouldn’t have to make something to eat when I got home. One of the things I often got was a “Club Sandwich”. It usually consisted of 3 slices of toast, with Mayo, and it was filled with Lettuce, Tomato, Ham Lunch Meat, Turkey or Beef Lunch meat, and some crispy Bacon. Then they always cut it in half from corner to corner, and stuck a couple fancy toothpicks in, to keep them from falling apart.

    I often make a Club Sammy like this when I can’t decide whether I want one Sammy or Two, and the Club Sandwich has 3 slices of bread, so it’s kinda like 1 1/2 Sammies.

    This time I’m using ingredients that are hard to find in a restaurant at any time, especially after 1:00 in the morning!! No Lunch Meat in this Sammy!!!

    Double Smoked Ham & Smoked Turkey Club Sandwich:
    So I start by toasting 3 slices of Italian Bread.
    Then I put Miracle Whip on all 3 slices (You can use Mayo if you prefer it to be bland).
    Then down goes one slice of toast.
    Then some good slices of Smoked Turkey.
    Then some Lettuce.
    Then Some Tomato slices.
    Then some Bacon (This time I used some of the Bacon I had in my Glazing Drip pan when I double smoked my Spiral Sliced Ham).
    Then goes the middle slice of toast, and some MW on the second side of that slice.
    Then some more of that Bacon.
    Then some more Lettuce.
    Some Double Smoked Ham.
    Then the Lid (The top slice of toast).
    Then I push down on the whole thing with my big paw, while I’m cutting it in half from corner to corner.
    Pushing down while cutting it always keeps it from falling apart——Without the Fancy Toothpicks.

    That’s it—One Special Club Sammy!!

    No cutting corners on that masterpiece! A big sliced dill and a large glass of milk and a meal fit for a grizzly king. Looks darn good!

    Yeah I plated some Pickle Chips, after I took the Pics.
    Actually my favorite are those huge Deli Pickles (I think they call them Kosher Dills).
    And Thanks for the Like.

    Thank You Chris!!
    I don't know what it is, but in my younger days, most of the Club Sandwiches I ever ate were late at night!!
    Earlier meals were mostly Philly Cheesesteaks & Quakertown Webers.
