But it was too darn delicious, and I was too darn hungry.
Anyway, I was over at my mom’s on Thursday, and we made imitation Olga bread, as I mentioned in my Chicken Tzatziki Wraps post. I was driving home, mentally working my way through the Olga’s Kitchen menu to figure out something quick and doable, with the bread I’d swiped for dinner. Then, I realized that one of my husband’s favorite Olga sandwiches is also one of the easier ones to make. Here it is, in all its delicious, unhealthy splendor.
Olga’s Kitchen Ham & Cheese Club
Cook/assembly time (not including bread): 15 mins
Yield: 2 sandwiches
- 6 pc deli ham
- 3-4 pc Swiss cheese
- Dijon mustard
- Tomato, sliced
- Onion, sliced
- 4 Dill pickle sandwich slices
- 4 pc bacon, fried to taste
- 2 pc Leaf lettuce
- Put ham in a skillet over medium-low heat to warm. (I staggered 3 of them lengthwise, so they overlapped and would fit on the Olga bread.)
- Lay Swiss cheese over the ham. Cover until cheese is melted and ham is warmed through.
- Put ham and cheese on a warm Olga bread.
- Top with mayonnaise (or plain yogurt, if preferred), Dijon mustard, onion, tomato and dill pickle.
I didn’t have time for bacon, but that’s probably what makes it a “club,” and I’m sure that would be a delicious, if not healthy, addition. 😉 Also, according to the Olga’s menu, theirs has leaf lettuce — I did this from memory, so I missed that, but it was still delicious.
My husband said it was as good as the real thing. (Well, it practically was the real thing. ;))
