California Club Sandwich and Awards

California Club Sandwich

Lauren at GoLo Kitchen and I are doing a recipe swap today. She baked up and blogged about my yummy Citrus Cream Cheese Pull Apart Rolls and I’m featuring her favorite sandwich which she calls her Super Awesome Totally Stellarly Delicious California Club Sandwich. How could I resist a sandwich with a name like that? And it lives up to the title too. My daughter said this sandwich totally rocks.

Lauren has so many delicious recipes on her site that it was hard to pick just one but when I saw the California Club sandwich it was calling my name. We were headed to Newport Beach, California for a family vacation and it seemed like the perfect place to make a super awesome California Club sandwich even more super awesome with fresh California produce from the Huntington Beach Farmer’s Market.

We spent the day playing on Huntington Beach and then hit the Farmer’s Market for dinner and shopping. We loaded up on tons of amazingly sweet fresh fruits and fresh veggies to make our super awesome California Club sandwich.

The next day at our condo, we made the Super Awesome Totally Stellarly Delicious California Club Sandwiches and everyone was in sandwich heaven. There was a bit of guacamole left over after all the sandwiches were made, and even though we were stuffed from the huge, delicious sandwiches, we managed with the help of a few tortilla chips to finish off all of the creamy, delicious guacamole in one sitting too.

If you haven’t had guacamole on a Club sandwich you need to give it a try. Thanks Lauren for the recipe swap. I have a new favorite sandwich!

Lauren describes her guacamole as “Mexican heaven in your mouth” and I agree.

California Club Sandwich and Awards

Ingredients:

  • 2 pieces of good quality bread (I bought cheese rolls from a local market)
  • mayonnaise
  • Guacamole (recipe below)
  • bacon and lots of it
  • tomato slices
  • deli turkey slices (I used pepper turkey and black forest ham)
  • cheese is optional (I used provolone)

Guacamole

  • 2 ripe Haas avocados
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced (I used grated garlic)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 small roma tomato, diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped (optional–I forgot to buy this)

Directions:

Build a sandwich using the ingredients above.

Guacamole

Open ripe avocados, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Squeeze lime juice over avocados and mash slightly. Stir in remaining ingredients and serve! I find it is best when you let the guacamole sit in the fridge 20-30 minutes to let the garlic work its magic
