Had to do some shopping yesterday since we’re leaving for Sweden in a couple of days to attend a party and had no time for blogging. An excellent shopping lunch though is the classic Club sandwich. Apparently the first Club sandwich was served 1894 at the Saratoga Club House, a famous gentlemen club in Saratoga Springs, New York.
Another classic is of course the Ceasar salad but I often find that restaurants make their own versions, and rarely with success. So, Club sandwich à la Schmidt it is.
- 12 toasted slices of Tin bread
- 2 Avocados, sliced
- 4 Chicken breasts, grilled or fried in a grill pan
- 2 Red onions, sliced and fried
- 2 Tomatoes, sliced
- 6-8 Lettuce leaves
- 10-12 slices of Bacon
- 3 Egg yolks
- 1 tbsp Mustard
- a dash of Vinegar
- 2-3 dl Rape oil
- a splash of Lemon juice
- 1 red Chili, chopped, or Sambal Olek
- 2 Garlic cloves, grated
- 1 dl Sour cream
Start with the chili mayonnaise. Make sure that all the ingredients are room temperatured. Blend egg yolks, mustard and vinegar. Use an electric mixer and carefully pour the oil little by little. When you have a good consistency add chili and a splash of lemon juice.
Add grated garlic and sour cream.
Start with a slice of bread, lettuce, avocado slices, the grilled chicken breast, sauce, bread slice no 2, fried onion, slices of bacon, tomatoes and more sauce and at the end bread slice no 3.
Not healthy but very, very tasty!
