Ultimate Club Sandwich With Super Mayo Recipe

With ham, turkey, bacon, and mayo, you won't believe this hearty sandwich is under 350 calories.

There are many people who believe that you can judge the quality of a hotel by its club sandwich. The reason being that it's the one item you will find on nearly all room service menus, and a place that puts love into the sandwich is likely putting love into the other small things that make a hotel great. We think our version—ham, turkey, bacon, and a souped-up mayo—would win over any guest, with the added bonus of containing half the calories of the club sandwiches that normally show up on the room service cart.

How to Make It

Most club sandwiches are just simply more refined carbs than meat or produce — the traditional extra layer of bread adding nothing but excess calories to the mix. In our version, we build a club that has fewer calories to enter—or rather, to eat. Rather than regular high-calorie white bread, this recipe is built on sandwich rolls (aka sandwich thins) which is a great option because it swaps out high calories for high fiber. Better yet, this great bread is now widely available, so you don't have to take a trip to simply have a low-calorie club sandwich. Both Oroweat and Nature's Own make varieties that contain just 100 calories and pack 5 grams of fiber per roll—more fiber and fewer calories than you'd get with two slices of whole-wheat bread. Make these your go-to sandwich vessels.
