Quick Fix Club Sandwich with Pesto Mayonnaise

The other night I dreamed I was on a deserted island. I could only pick one sandwich to have on the island for the rest of my life. It came down to a choice between a Reuben and a club sandwich. I went with the club sandwich. But not an ordinary club sandwich. Instead, my quick fix (I’ve got things to do on the island!) club sandwich with a delicious pesto mayonnaise!

Quick Fix Club Sandwich with Pesto Mayonnaise

As much as I do love a good Reuben sandwich, I know I made the right choice. Crunchy bacon. Tangy cheese. Crispy lettuce. Ripe tomato. And that nutty pesto. Different and delicious! If you find pesto strong, don’t use much, just enough to get the taste. If you love pesto, load up on it!

I am required to have my club sandwich (any club sandwich) with a dill pickle spear. It has to be super cold, too. Hopefully I can get those on my island.

BBQ Island Club Sandwich

I devoured my BBQ Island Club sandwich like I devoured the Margaritaville: The Cookbook where I found the recipe that inspired it. There’s nothing wrong with your standard good ole club sandwich. This is your standard good ole club sandwich… but with a twist. The dressing mix, as easy as it is, sets them apart.

BBQ Island Club Sandwich


I made a big batch of the dressing and BBQ sauce mix and kept it on hand for burgers and sandwiches. It’s a nice change and is also absolutely fantastic on a Reuben or pastrami sandwich. Of course it’s also great on a BBQ Island club sandwich.

Try my Cheeseburgers in Paradise. They’re just like the restaurant classic!
