Club Sandwich


Club Sandwich is a toasted/grilled sandwich but what makes it special is the use of three bread slices instead of the usual two. I love to order this sandwich along with a cup of tea or coffee. You can also request the whole wheat bread (which goes by brown bread in Mumbai). That's what I generally do when I have it at one of my favorite places - Tea Center at Resham Bhavan.

Here's my version :-

Club Sandwich - Serves 2
6 slices of bread
1 boiled potato, peeled & cut into thin circles
1 red but very firm tomato, cut into thin circles (Make sure to remove seeds)
1 small cucumber, peeled and cut into thin circles
1 small green bell pepper, cored, cut into thin circles
1 small sweet onion, cut into thin slices
4 tbsp. shredded cheese

A pinch of chaat masala.

butter/oil as needed

1. Butter the bread slices.
2. Spread some chutney on inner side of a slice
3. Add onion and potatoes. Sprinkle some chaat masala on the potato pieces.
4. Sprinkle 1 tbsp. cheese.
5. Add buttered bread slice. Add more chutney if desired.
6. Now place tomatoes and green bell peppers.
7. Place third bread on top. Spread some butter on the outer side. Use chutney on the inner slice if desired.
8. Toast in the sandwich maker/Panini grill press till ready.
9. Cut the sandwich into two halves/triangles.
10. Serve with a tooth pick holding the sandwich along with tomato ketchup and hot cup of tea or coffee

Note -
1. In United States, I use Pepperidge Farm's very thin bread slices to make this sandwich. If using those, make sure that tomatoes are very firm otherwise it will make the sandwich soggy.
2. You can spread green chutney on all the breads to make it spicy or do not use green chutney to make it mild.
3. Gudiya prefers her sandwich with basil pesto or hot & sweet mustard instead of chutney.
4. Use any other sandwich-friendly veggies of your choice like shredded cabbage or shredded carrots.
