Kay’s Club Sandwich

Kay's Club Sandwich

Now this is a serious lunch. So serious in fact I have to split it with someone as I can barely eat half of this.

I really wanted to share this recipe with you because I have a thing for club sandwiches—they make me all giddy and happy—probably because they’re kinda retro and I’m partial to old-school comfort food. But that aside; there’s something really satisfying about biting down on a sandwich so big it almost makes your jaw hurt. Especially one that’s been to known to combine so many flavours and textures as a club sandwich.

I upped the stakes by throwing in a mayo mixed with chipotle chillies in adobo & lime juice, spicing it up, mellowing that out by adding avocado and topped the whole thing off with a sunny side up egg.

What’s not to like?

 

Ingredients:

bread (3 slices pp)
cooked chicken breast
iceberg lettuce
tomato
cooked bacon
avocado
sunny side up egg
salt & pepper
4 tbsp mayonnaise
2 chipotle chillies in adobo
1 tbsp lime juice

 

Directions:

You can use any kind of bread you like. Mine was a spelt bread.

Cooked and cooled off chicken breast. I prefer to season mine with finely ground lemon pepper and salt. Thinly slice it.

Use 1 or 2 chipotle chillies in adobo. Suffice to say I used two. I’m a spicy gal.
Kay's Club Sandwich

Combine the chillies with the lime juice and use your immersion blender or food processor to mash it up. You can also finely chop the chillies.

See this? That’s Hellmann’s, I kid you not. They now sell Hellmann’s in glass cans here opposed to the plastic jars we’ve been having.

For some sort of sick, twisted reason they felt they had to turn Hellmann’s, which was perfect and needn’t be changed, into a much sweeter and globby type of Dutch French Fry sauce. It’s horrible.

Those evildoers messed with my Hellmann’s. They messed with perfection. Hellmann’s was never meant as a French fry condiment! We have plenty of those here. Give us the normal Hellmann’s back! The flavour of this isn’t even 1/10th of the flavour explosion regular Hellmann’s gave.

Ha, that felt good! Combine the mayonnaise with the chillies. Should be enough for 2 or 3 club sandwiches here.

Cook the bacon, wash and slice the tomato, wash and rip apart the lettuce and slice the avocado.
Kay's Club Sandwich

Toast the bread. Spread a thin layer of the spicy mayo on one of the slices.
Kay's Club Sandwich

Top with lettuce, chicken and tomato. Top it off with another slice thinly spread with mayo and layer more lettuce, bacon and avocado. Cover the whole thing with a 3d slice of bread and finish with a sunny side up egg. Season the egg with salt and pepper to taste.

    Indonesian Glazed Meatballs

    I so wanted to call these ‘keigoeie ballen’ (that’s Dutch to you, I know), or perhaps even ‘awesome sauce’. Bottomline: these are the real deal. So crazy good that the guys continue to fight over who gets the last meatball. Silly men. Me, of course. Here’s how it started: a couple of weeks ago I ran into Lonny Gerungan’s Kecap sauce during grocery shopping, and on a whim I decided…

      Seriously Flavoured Salt

      Filed under: Home,Recipes,Sauces & Spices,spice mixes — Kay @ 10:36 am

      Seriously flavoured salt: why, oh, why didn’t I think of this sooner? I can almost see you frown. I know that adding dried herbs or other spices to salt has been done for eons. No rocket science there. A good flavoured salt is a perfect way to finish and liven up any kind of dish. But I own a dehydrator, darn it! I can do better than that. I just…

        Artichoke & Sun-Dried Tomato Tapenade

        Family life settled back to a calm pace. Call me a terrible mom, but at the end of the vacation I am so ready for the kid to go back to school and get some peace and quiet around here. Domestic chores seemed to have settled down as well; within 5 minutes, tops, he can make any size living room look like it’s been hit by a tornado. It’s a talent,…

          Roast Chicken, Saffron, Lime & Chilli

          I know it’s getting old, me saying I have found yet another ultimate roast chicken recipe, but really… I did. Even though nothing beats my Peruvian Roasted Chicken, this beauty combines all that is good in this world, and then it kicks it up a notch… or two. We’re talking roasted chicken stuffed with lime, rosemary and chili pepper, placed on top of even more lime, chili and some halved…

            Salsa di Pomodoro

            Tomato sauce, in plain English. I bought an old-school food mill. Passe-vite, if you will, or passeerzeef for those in the Netherlands. Whatever name you want to give it, I’m so happy with the darn thing. It improved the quality of my tomato sauces by, oh well, something like 200%. Time saver, since you don’t have to remove skin or seeds anymore, you can let the mill do that for…
