Club Sandwich

The classic club sandwich (supposedly named for New York’s Union Club, where it was served in the late 19th century) is toasted white bread containing chicken or turkey, ham or bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. It is common to separate the multiple ingredients with an extra slice of toast, creating a double-decker sandwich. In determinedly polite dining situations, the crust is removed, the sandwich is cut into quarters, and each quarter is spiked with a frilly toothpick to hold it together.
