BLT Club Sandwich

Bacon + Tomato + Lettuce = BLT

BLT + Turkey + Mayo + Red Onion + Cheese = A BLT Club Sandwich.

It’s pretty simple {and delicious} math.

When I was a kid it was more of a BL sandwich, as I didn’t care so much for tomatoes. Now I load it up with whatever fresh veggies I can lay my hands on, the thicker the sandwich the better!

For this sammie I like to use some kind of bakery bread or sourdough. Oh and sure you could toast it like those do at delis and diners, but why not griddle it? Griddling the bread gives it that golden, crispy edge, yet it won’t tear up the inside of your mouth and leave your gums raw! I totally hate  that!

So whether it’s lunch or dinner this this sandwich isn’t complete without a crisp, juicy dill pickle and some salty potato chips and washed down with an iced cold lemonade. This is my kind of meal. Quick… Easy… Classic.


The goods. You’re also gonna need some butter and mayo. And a griddle. :)


Grab two slices of bread and open them like a book so they will match back up when you make your sandwich.


Schmear both sides with some mayo, if mayo is your thing. Go as heavy or as light with it as you like. I’m a light schmear-er… Pat likes a heavy schmear.


Put the slices back together and butter both of the outer sides with a thin layer of butter.


Open them back up and lay the outer, buttered sides, down on the hot griddle.

Now comes the fun part…


Top one of the slices with cheese and as much bacon as your heart desires.


Top with a couple slices of turkey. If you have fresh turkey left over, use that… oh my heavens!


Tomato…


Red onion…


Lettuce…


Then place the other griddled half on top of all the half with all the fixins.


Ever wonder what it looks like in my kitchen while I blog? Organized chaos… that’s the best way to explain it… all laid out on my kitchen table! Where did we eat our sandwiches? Not at the kitchen table, that’s for sure!


Mmmmm hmmmmm.


It’s good. It’s real good.


Such a classic sandwich… and such a delicious bite… without the painful gums.

    This looks beautiful and delicious…but you know what stopped me just as quickly!? Your griddle! It's obviously well used and loved, and, looks exactly like my mother's. We had the same griddle growing up and it aged exactly like yours. Now you've made homesick for Mom's pancakes on Sundays!

    Yes! I actually go this griddle from my Mom! She found the same one, still in the original box at a flea market! So, lucky me inherited my childhood griddle! Thousands of pancakes, french toast and grilled cheese have been made on this griddle! I just love it!!
