A wonderful variation of the traditional club sandwich. I came up with this creation because I love Firehouse Subs Italian Sub and Jimmy John's Beach Club Sub. I decided to come up with a sandwich that incorporated everything that I loved about the two and added a few twists of my own.

How to Make Club CaliItaliano


  • 1Toast bread in toaster until light golden brown. Set aside.

  • 4Now to the sandwich building:

    Spread two pieces of toasted bread with the mayo/basil pesto mixture. On one slice of prepared toast, lay ham on top, then top with cheese, lettuce, slices of 1/2 avocado and then top with two half bacon slices. Place second slice of toast, mayo/basil pesto side down on top.
  • 5Second Layer:

    On the top of the toast you just placed, spread the sun-dried tomato pesto/mayo, then place salami (turkey), cheese, lettuce, slices of 1/2 avocado, then top with two half bacon slices. Spread a third slice of toast with the sun-dried tomato pesto/mayo and place it on top with the mayo/pesto side down.
  • 6Cut sandwich in half on the diagonal then again in fourths.

    Repeat steps 3-6 until you have four sandwiches.

    I made two sandwiches with ham/Genoa salami and two sandwiches with ham/turkey.
