Copycat Applebee’s Clubhouse Grille

We both really enjoyed this copycat Applebee’s Clubhouse Grille sandwich. I had plenty of smoked turkey on hand after smoking a few turkey breasts. The light smoke flavor of the very tender turkey, along with gooey cheese and the best part, a bit of smoky BBQ sauce, really made for a great sandwich. It’s like a grownup take on a grilled cheese.

Copycat Applebee's Clubhouse Grille Sandwich

Any ‘plain’ sandwich can have that little extra something just by adding a bit of BBQ sauce to it. Not a lot, you’re not making a pulled pork sandwich. But just enough so you know it is there. You’ll remember it more than just a sandwich just say, mayonnaise.

Also try my copycat of Applebee’s classic patty melt.
