Recipe Swap - "Patriotic Picnic Club Sandwich"

Ooooooh, Happy Day!  

Thanks for dropping by!  This week's Recipe Swap is Aric's 4-H Food dish that he entered in the Food Show.  

It's a classic sandwich - been on menus since 1899 - his healthy twist was adding swiss cheese, lean ham and turkey, no bacon, whole wheat bread and a tasty sauce instead of just plain mayo!  Since Aric's favorite time is the summer - he picked the 4th of July for his Holiday!  "Looks like Uncle Sam, huh!"

Patriotic Picnic Club


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 9 slices bread, toasted
  • 3 thin slices deli ham
  • 3 slices Swiss cheese
  • 3 thin slices deli turkey
  • 6 thin slices tomato
  • 3 lettuce leaves

  • In a bowl, combine mayonnaise, chili sauce and pickle relish. Spread 1 tablespoonful on each slice of bread. Top three slices of bread with a slice of ham and Swiss cheese. Top each with another slice of bread. Layer with turkey, tomato and lettuce. Top with remaining bread. Secure with toothpicks if necessary. Cut into quarters. Yield: 3-6 servings.
Wishing you a GREAT week ahead!  Remember to hug the ones you love the most, until next time...
