One theory on the origin of the Club Sandwich is that it was invented in an exclusive Saratoga Springs, New York, gambling club in the late 19th century by a maverick line cook named Danny Mears.

To help hotel guests and users learn how to prepare the perfect club sandwich on their own, John Torode, chef, restaurateur and TV presenter reveals in this video how kitchen skills can result in lunch that tastes just right.





Bacon, poached chicken, lettuce, tomato, hard boiled eggs, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard


1. Thinly sliced the chicken, egg, tomatoes and iceberg lettuce 

2. Toast the bread and mix the mayonnaise and mustard to create Dijonnaise and spread the Dijonnaise on one side of each slice

3. Add the bacon on top of the first slice, followed by the chicken, layered in opposite directions

4. Add the second slice of toast Dijonnaise side down and top with another spreading of Dijonnaise before topping with the lettuce, tomatoes and egg

5. Add the final slice on top, Dijonnaise side down

6. Press down the edges of the sandwich to hold the ingredients together. Place four toothpicks to hold the sandwich together, one in each corner

7. Cut away the sides of the sandwich and serve with hot fries
