Triple Decker Club Sandwich

These are inspired the by The delightful Rose in Oxford, in fact just looking for a link to the website is making me drool. Many mornings, lunches and afternoons have been happily spent here drinking vanilla tea, eating scones and everything else. It's all organic, made from scratch and outrageously good.

The club sandwich is legendary, layers of chicken oozing with mayonnaise and avocado, crispy bacon, lettuce and tomato. A heart attack on a plate, maybe. The best way to start the weekend, definitely. This is my version - I like to secure the little triangles with cocktail sticks not just for looks, this helps hold the entire creation together. For next time I'm planning on having this with a handful of crisps to wedge into the sandwich, a guilty pleasure if you will.

Ingredients

Makes 2 rather large sandwiches

6 slices bread
150g cooked chicken, shredded
2 tomatoes, sliced
6 rashers streaky bacon
1 avocado
2 tbsp mayonnaise
handful lettuce, shredded

  • Toast your bread. Meanwhile cook the bacon in a frying pan until golden and crispy.
  • Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh. Mash in bowl with a little salt and pepper, and 1tbsp mayonnaise.
  • To assemble the sandwiches spread half the avocado onto one slice of bread and top with half the chicken and another slice of bread. Top this with half the bacon, tomatoes and lettuce. Spread half the mayonnaise onto the third slice of bread and complete. Repeat for the other sandwich.

Very elegant.

I love a sandwich held together with a cocktail stick. It just seems so...right.

Mmmm...looks delicious!

If you like club sandwiches (like me, haha) - I highly suggest trying Schlotzsky's new Big League Clubz; www.bigleagueclubz.com. So tasty! Schlotzsky's is also running a baseball sweepstakes as part of the release of these sandwiches, the grand prize is a trip to St. Louis in July to see all the stars, I'm a baseball fan so I think it's pretty cool, haha.

I love avocado so I'm definitely gonna try this! Thanks for the recipe!
