Ultimate Club Sandwich With Super Mayo Recipe
Mitch Mandel and Thomas MacDonald

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.

Serves 4

You'll Need

2 Tbsp olive oil mayonnaise
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, finely minced (or grated on a microplane)
1 tsp dried oregano
6 sandwich rolls, split and lightly toasted (12 pieces total; see our Eat This Tip below)
2 cups shredded romaine
8 slices tomato
8 strips cooked bacon
4 oz ham in 8 slices
4 oz turkey in 8 slices

How to Make It

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, garlic, and oregano.
  2. Spread the mayo mixture on 8 pieces of the toasted sandwich rolls.
  3. Top each piece with shredded romaine, a slice of tomato, and a strip of bacon.
  4. Top 4 of the pieces with ham and the other 4 with turkey.
  5. Build each sandwich with a turkey half, a ham half, and top with a final piece of sandwich roll for a tri-level sandwich.

Eat This Tip

Sandwich Thins

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.
