BBQ Club Sandwiches

I'm not sure why, but this summer has been the summer of sandwiches for me. Lately it has been my favorite thing to "cook" for dinner. This recipe (if you can call it that) for BBQ Club Sandwiches was one that I was skeptical about at first. However, since I first tested it out last week, we have had them 4 times (once for dinner and 3 times for lunch.) Now that's a great sandwich.

Apparently it's a clone from a sandwich that Applebee's used to have on their menu called the Club House Grill. I have never had the Applebee's original, so I cannot vouch for how authentic this version is, but because of the simplicity of it, I can't imagine that it's much different.

Just as a note, we tried this sandwich in a panini press and also on a grill pan on my stove. Surprisingly the grill pan version won.

BBQ Club Sandwiches
(recipe makes 1 sandwich)

2 slices french bread (medium slices - not too thick)
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 slices deli turkey breast
2 slices deli ham
2 slices tomato
2 tsp Bullseye BBQ Sauce

Take the two slices of bread and butter one side of each. On the other side of one slice, spread mayonnaise. Top with half of the cheese, ham slices, tomato slices, BBQ sauce, turkey slices, rest of cheese and final slice of bread. It is important to have the cheese next to the bread to act as glue. Grill on a grill pan or skillet over a medium heat until cheese is melted and bread is toasted. If this cooks too quickly the cheese will not have a chance to melt and the meats will not be warm.

Aren't those grill pans fabulous? When I first bought it, I wasn't sure how much I would end up using it. It turns out that I use it at least twice each week, if not more!
