For the final day under American Sandwiches, I am forced to come up with a fusion dish. I read that club sandwiches are listed and since I have sort of already shared a typical American Club Sandwich, I thought a slight modification to the dish might warrant some interest too. There are times when I think I should try to avoid potatoes. However much I try, I seem to end up using it often. For all my not so liked potatoes, I do use it a lot, atleast for the kid friendly dishes.
This club sandwich was made on one of those marathon cooking I have on weekends. Especially when Hubby dear is on tour, I end up making all those that kids love and other elders at home wont mind eating. So it was a day of sandwiches, with different sandwich being made. All of us enjoyed our sandwich dinners and especially the grilled version turned out great.
I have clicked both fresh breads and grilled version too. No complains from any!
When I was going through the different Classic Club Sandwiches, I realised I might have to do something very similar to the many layers of meat and sauces that are included. So I decided to make my Sandwich chutney and an equalatent of patties.
