Roast Beef Club Sandwich with Garlic and Herb Cheese

Ok, this isn't really a recipe. But, it was wicked good. So I'm posting about it. All right then, I'm sure you are all familiar with club sandwiches. Three slices of toast, some kind of sliced meat, tomato, lettuce, bacon and often some kind of cheese. Good stuff. Usually it has mayonnaise on it (at least in my experience), but this one here doesn't. Instead of mayo it has Alouette. Alouette is a spreadable cheese that has herbs and stuff in it. I know I normally don't name names here, but I will pimp this stuff a bit because it's just so good. Anyone work for them? I would write a review of it in exchange for some free samples, wink wink. Heh. Anyway, let's make a sandwich.

First, toast. Three slices. I'm using some twelve grain bread I happened to have. Next is some Alouette. Then a pile of roast beef. I know turkey is more traditional, but I love roast beef clubs. Now the another piece of toast. A little more cheese, just to hold things still of course, and the lettuce. Feel free to ignore the chunks of cabbage. The lettuce is actually bag salad. Hey, it's what we had. Here, look at the sweet, delicious bacon. That should take your mind off of it. Heh.And the top. Notice, the sandwich is huge. Some squishing is in order. And that's that, give it as many slices as you feel the need to and then enjoy. Some people might be wondering where the tomato is. Well, I don't like tomatoes on sandwiches so I didn't put any on. Don't let that stop you though, you go ahead and put all the tomatoes you want on. A little red onion would be good too. My girlfriend likes cucumbers and pickles on her roast beef sandwiches. How about you folks? What would you put on it?

I like tomatoes on my roast beef only if they are good. "Bulletproof" tomatoes from the supermarket are not worth the bother. Hm, the top section of your club made me think: BLT with Alouette or herbed chevre instead of mayo...

Dude I just drooled on my desk!

Dawn said...

I love that you are not shy with the bacon each and every time.
I love this and would devour it! Sweet.

Karen said...

I'd have to put some mayo, Dijon, onion, tomato and horseradish on it. Yeah, I love that cheese too :)

Reeni♥ said...

I love club sandwiches, and hate tomatoes on it, too. I would add lots of mayo and onion. That cheese is yummy!

Joie de vivre said...

Oh wow. You changed your profile pic! I have to admit, the doll with teeth scared me a little! :)

Bob said...

Brutal: That would be good too. Heh.

Spryte: Nice. ;)

Dawn: Life is too short to be shy with the bacon. Course, that just makes it shorter... but whatever. :)

Karen: Horseradish, huh? I bet that would be good!

Reeni: Another vote for onion! I wish I had had some...

Joie: Heh, you don't need to be scared of Domokun! He means you no harm. ;)

Most definitely a bit of spicy brown moutarrrde! We'd add a bit of swiss too. Even with the alouette. :)

Maria said...

That is a mighty sandwich!!

Vicki said...

Peperoncini, definitely.

BTW, I drove by a new pizza joint called Wicked Good Pizza, and thought of you :)

Stacey Snacks said...

The finger photo scared me for a second! It looked like a finger sandwich!!!!

Bob said...

duo: Swiss would have been wicked good!

Maria: Thanks!

Vicki: Lol, that's awesome. :D

Stacey: Naw, too many bones. ;)

Sharon said...

Oh wow, I love tasty sandwiches!

noble pig said...

Hey, where's mine! Looks awesome, I was dreaming about a sandwich like this today as I forgot to eat lunch!

Joie de vivre said...

Okay Bob, here's what you do. Your girlfriend tells you how you're going to be celebrating V-day, then you take it an extra step or two higher. She'll appreciate it. Of course, that will raise her expectations for next year. It's a vicious cycle I know.

Ruth said...

This looks delicious!!! I know what I want for lunch now!

Bob said...

Sharon: Me too! :)

noble pig: If you were here I'd make you one. Heh, that's when I decided to make these, while I was not eating lunch at work. ;)

Joie: Heh, good plan, but I don't know how many years I'd be able to keep it up for! :D

Ruth: Thanks! :)

Wow! That's a big sandwich! I have a small mouth, but I think I could manage!

bakingblonde said...

OMG, that sandwich is sooooooooooo going to be my lunch on Monday! YUMMY

Bob said...

Clumbsy: My girlfriend has a small mouth too and she managed. ;)

Hope you enjoy! :)
