This is the right way to make the delicious traditional club sandwich including my easy recipe for homemade mayo!


6 pieces of sandwich bread, lightly toasted
4-5 strips thick bacon, crispy
6 ounces roasted turkey, sliced thin
1 tomato, sliced thin
4 leaves Romaine lettuce
Mayonnaise, homemade is best
Salt and pepper

Homemade Mayo:

1 egg yolk
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup Canola or safflower oil
1 teaspoon Sriracha (optional)


1) To make the mayo, whisk the egg yolk in a bowl with water, lemon, and a pinch of salt. Whisk over a double boiler until yolk is steaming and hot to the touch. This will kill any bacteria that is in the egg. (Note: If you want to be 100% sure, you need to hold the egg at 138 degrees Fahrenheit for 3 minutes.)

2) Once the egg is off the heat, very slowly start whisking in oil. Start with just a drop of oil and slowly add more. If the egg has curdled at all from the double boiler, whisk in a few drops of water. Keep whisking oil in slowly until it’s all incorporated and the mayo is a very thick consistency. Season with Sriracha if you want.

3) Season bacon strips with lots of fresh black pepper and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, flipping once while cooking.

4) Lightly toast bread.

5) Start sandwich by slathering one piece of bread with mayo and topping with a few turkey slices. Top turkey with lettuce and add your second piece of bread.

6) Slather second piece of bread with mayo and top with tomato slices and bacon. Slather top piece of bread with mayo and top sandwich.

7) Stick sandwich with skewers, one per corner.

8) Cut sandwich into four pieces, each piece being held by a skewer. Serve club with chips.
