Hi, I'm Betty and welcome to Betty’s Kitchen. Today we’re doing a club sandwich and the reason for choosing a sandwich today is that I've have request for all kinds of sandwiches for summer and some people have ask for something just very basic implying because they're learning to cook and they’ve never done a particular sandwich and they want to see it. Others want to something that is just new and different so I'll try to do a mixture of all of those and today I decided a club sandwich is kind of in between. You might make a club sandwich but you might make it in a different way then I'm going to show you so let's get started with our spread that we’re going to put on our club sandwich.
We're going to use some sour cream and this is fat free sour cream one-half cup and now I won't put all of this on one sandwich but you might as well mix up and not to do more than one sandwich and just let it go where as far as it will. To this we’re going to add some prepared horseradish. Now this is not the grated horseradish that is just in some kind of liquid but not creamy you want the creamy style, so we're going to use one and one-half tablespoons of creamy horseradish, prepared horseradish and then we want some honey mustard and we need one teaspoon of honey mustard. And you can see this going to be a very tasty blend because everything I've put in has its own distinctive flavor.
And then we’re going to put a couple of spices here we have some garlic salt and I'm just going to shake a little bit of that and you don’t want to over do it don’t make too salty just a little bit and say it’s even less than an eight it was maybe an eight of a teaspoon. And then we want to shake in some ground black pepper. You can see its just regular black pepper. You could use white pepper if you like not too much just a little bit there. And then mix this up. We've done our mixture here and that’s going to service our spread now if you don’t want to go that trouble it really wasn’t to show but if you don’t want to go to that travel just use mayonnaise and or some kind of sandwich spread or anything that you might like if you just wanted to use the prepared horseradish alone that would be fine or mustard alone any of those.
Now let's go to our let's go to our bread. I've chosen whole wheat bread—oh, this is whole grain bread but you can use whole wheat, whole grain if it’s right I use something substantial if I could and I will just remove two slices out of we toasted them so you can see they’re nice and toasted already and that was by using my electric toaster and just getting them until they were lightly brown on each side. Now, we’re going to start by placing one piece or let say two pieces of ham. Now when I was at the Dallas morning and picked this up I asked them for some honey ham and I ask them to make it thin slice as thin as I can get it sort of shaving it, so it’s not shaved but it’s big thinly slice I'm going to have double it in half and order for that to fit on but that will kind of go along with the curve there. And once I get that on then I want to spread some of this and I'm not going to worry about dipping back and fort because I might use this later for something else.
So I'm just going to spread that out try to get enough that you get to all parts of it. And there we go and then we move on to our next component of our club sandwich and that’s going to be Swiss Cheese so you can just use slice like that and place it on there and then you're ready for you next component which happens to be turkey and again I ask for sliced turkey that was thinly slice short of shaving this is almost shaved but I think I can pick up a couple of slices here and fold them in such a way that they will go on the sandwich and sort of their purpose I don’t think we need that part. That looks fairly nice.
And then we’re back to our spread. We want to put our spread on. It’s definitely going to be tasted because it’s in between a couple of these layers. And then as we move on down the line we have lettuce and tomato and then I have bacon so we’re going to put a leaf of lettuce not too thick and not too crunchy it needs to be kind of flat. This is an iceberg lettuce and I just peeled off some of the outer parts and wash them and dried them the best I could and that’s the kind of layer that you want there.
Then I have fresh tomatoes from our farmers market and look like I could probably use the smaller slices here and put one beside another one. And then I come sort to the end of the line right here I have some very crisp bacon. Always keep in the freezer cooked. You can buy it cooked if you want to save some work then just buy it precook and then you can brown it off into microwave you can make it the crisp like this or you can just heat it if you like it softer but I like it really crisp. So I'm just going to take one piece, so I can get one piece of those and divided up so that it has it’s place in the sandwich.
Now what we do is go overall that again. We go back to our ham get two thin little sizes here fold them over and then put our spread on. There we go a slice of Swiss cheese as next and then two slices of turkey, remember these are very thin slices. If you have thick slice turkey and ham just put one slice on. Fold that over and then back to our spread again and then the last three things we have are lettuce, tomato and bacon so let's pick some lettuces that will life flat for us, maybe one or two piece along there and then some kind of tomato slices that will again life flat for us, so size is really not as important here as getting it to stabilized and then one more piece of bacon just picking up a nice crisp piece and dividing it in half and putting it like that and then the lid goes on.
It such a nice whole sandwich I'm going to crunch it down a bit just let all those flavors blend and then as far as I was cutting we’re going to go corner to just use your bread knife and I shouldn’t got my bread out of the way and cut. Then go the opposite direction corner to corner and anyone of these section makes a fairly decent sandwich but if you're really hungry you'll eat it all so we need to cut corner to corner. And if it falls apart like that you can just tack it backup later. Just try to get it separated. So let me reassemble that and what I'm going to do is use a toothpick and an oil and I'm going to serve this up this for you so I'll be back and show it on the play.
So here is our nice completed club sandwich and I've put here vegetable chips around here. You can just look in your grocery store and you'll find chips that are not necessary potato chips but they are other vegetables and they're kind of neat. This has been portion off as you can see with the toothpick in each one and at all that’s for talk you can skip the olive if you don’t like that but it makes it nice and manageable. That’s look like a pretty good sandwich.
