Let’s start with the basics…
What is a club sandwich?
- Traditionally speaking, a club sandwich is made from meat, mayonnaise, tomato, and lettuce. Instead of being just one layer, it is two. You’ll commonly see them cut into fourths and held together by a fancy toothpick with a frilly plastic pompom thing on the end.
Bread and meat can vary. You’ll see it made with bacon, which is also known as a BLT when only one layer, or made with thinly sliced turkey or chicken. It can even (prepare to have your mind blown) be made with multiple types of meat!
I prefer my club sandwiche recipe to have two types of meat. It adds to the sophistication of the otherwise simple meal. I usually choose bacon and smoked turkey. The smooth smokiness of the turkey pairs well with salty and slightly chewy bacon bits. Texturally and flavor-wise, you just elevated your average club sandwich.
Making it even easier to eat, and even better for parties, potlucks, school lunch and other gatherings, I’ve made mine into a pinwheel. Club Sandwich Pinwheels lose the signature “double layer” but that is all made up for in the convenient two-bite finger food.
Here are a few pieces of advice for making any pinwheel sandwich, but especially a Club Sandwich Pinwheel.
How to make a club sandwich pinwheel
- Don’t overload the tortilla. Make sure your stuffing ingredients are in as even of a layer as possible.
- Wrap the tortilla as tight as possible. Stuffing will loosen and get away if you don’t!
- Refrigerate the tortilla before cutting. It helps to keep its shape. Place toothpicks before cutting to help retain shape and uniform size.
