The Definitive 1000

We are going to be counting down the Definitive 1000 things. Why are they Definitive? Because The Friendly Friends have deemed them as such.

# 993 - Turkey Club

Anyone who knows Sweaty Irishman knows how he feels about a Turkey Club. I don't feel I am overstating it when I say that never has there been and never will there be a more complete sandwich. A Turkey Club is the perfect combination of size, texture, and taste. I can talk to you all day about it's succulent goodness or how no other sandwich releases the awesome power of bacon like a Turkey Club, but that is obvious. What may not be so obvious is it's versatility! Whether it be on white, wheat, or rye...toasted or untoasted, in a wrap, in a pita, on a roll...heck, you get the proper proportions of turkey and bacon on put it between two slabs of concrete and it will be delicious! I myself am always looking for new ways to enjoy a Turkey Club. Turkey Club Soup, Turkey Club Hash, Turkey Club Kabobs, Turkey Club Dip. I don't care what it is, as long as it has the Turkey Club ingredients I will enjoy digesting it. Speaking of the proper ingredients, I will list them below so that there are no mistakes as to what goes in and what doesn't! You will not see onions, or leaks, or fancy condiments on this King of Sandwiches!

First get some Bread

Toss it in a toaster

Find yourself a delicious Turkey

Add some Bacon

Slice up a Tomato

Pick some nice ripe Lettuce...What?

Slap on some Mayonnaise

And there you have it. Best sandwich ever. Whether you are eating it or passing out in it, you will not enjoy yourself more. Just remember to take out the toothpicks.

I think you need to give credit where credit is due. All the Turkey Club is, is a BLT with Turkey. If it wasn't for the BLT you never would have tasted the glory of the Turkey Club.

Honoring the Turkey club and not the BLT is like putting the cart before the horse.

While it is true that the BLT is the obvious forerunner of the Turkey Club, I cannot agree more with the Sweaty Irishman in his detail obsessed breakdown of a turkey club sandwich.

Excellent work for an excellent sammie.
