Classic Turkey Club Sandwich with Cajun Mayonnaise

A classic turkey club sandwich with deli turkey, crisp bacon, garden fresh tomatoes, romaine lettuce and finished with a spicy Cajun mayonnaise.

Classic Turkey Club Sandwich

Recently we were having a discussion on the Facebook page about what to eat when it's too hot to cook and two of the most popular responses were tomato sandwiches and BLTs - both of which I love. I couldn't help but think of an old fashioned club sandwich though, so the next time I cooked some bacon, you know I planned a few extra slices to have ready for one! Sliced turkey breast, crisp bacon, garden fresh tomatoes and lettuce, sandwiched between lightly toasted bread with a bit of mayo - what a great summer sandwich! Be sure to sprinkle just a bit of salt and pepper on those tomatoes too to really bring out their garden fresh flavor.

If you haven't joined us on Facebook check it out sometime! We not only have some great discussions there, but our members share their own recipes on occasion - like this incredible Carolina Peach Salsa, and I also publish Facebook exclusives, like our member generated Crockpot Cookbook, and sneak peek recipes like Cucumber Dill Tea Sandwiches and the Zesty Herbed Rolled Dumplings, that Facebook fans get to see before they make it here to the site.

This is really another one of those non-recipe recipes, I've suggested a Cajun Mayonnaise just in case ya might like to kick it up a bit.  Hopefully, like the Classic Patty Melt, this will serve as a reminder that you probably haven't had one of these in awhile, and ... that you should remedy that!

  1. We love club sandwiches when it's so hot outside. I can't wait to try this cajun mayo out! I never would have thought to come up with it and it sounds SO good!!!

  2. That's a fine looking sandwich and a great shot of it. I can't remember the last one I had, but really like them. Until I became a blogger, I never considered kicking up the mayo. I need to branch out and do as you did or try some aioli.

  17. Made this tonight for dinner along with some Sea Salt Kettle chips and they were DE-LISH!!! Totally reminded me of a deli club with some bite. I made extra of the cajun mayo for other sandwiches. If ya like club sandwiches, ya gotta make this one.

  18. I made some club sandwiches using your cajun mayo and they were delish. I had a turkey club and my daughter had a ham and cheese club. She loved this mayo. Her son had it on a german bologna sandwich with lettuce and tomatoes and he enjoyed it as well. I used up the entire batch that I made. Will be fixing up this mayo alot from now on.

    1. That is a delicious mayo - I love it & I'm so glad y'all enjoyed it too!

  19. I used a homemade Cajun seasoning and it worked out just fine. Very good!

    1. Oh yes, any good Cajun seasoning will work with that mayo!
