Club Sandwich

A club sandwich, also called a clubhouse sandwich, is a sandwich of bread (occasionally toasted), sliced cooked poultry, or fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. It is often cut into quarters or halves and held together by cocktail sticks. Modern versions frequently have two layers which are separated by an additional slice of bread.

The club sandwich may have originated at the Union Club of New York City. The earliest known reference to the sandwich, an article that appeared in The Evening World on November 18, 1889, is also an early recipe; “Have you tried a Union Club sandwich yet? Two toasted pieces of Graham bread, with a layer of turkey or chicken and ham between them, served warm. Several other early references also credit the chef of the Union Club with creating the sandwich.

Other sources, however, find the origin of the club sandwich to be up for debate. Another theory is that the club sandwich was invented in an exclusive Saratoga Springs, New York, gambling club in the late 19th century.

The sandwich is known to have appeared on U.S. restaurant menus as far back as 1899. The earliest reference to the sandwich in published fiction is from Conversations of a Chorus Girl, a 1903 book by Ray Cardell. Historically, club sandwiches featured slices of chicken, but with time, turkey has become increasingly common.

As with a BLT, toasted white bread is standard, along with iceberg lettuce, bacon, and tomatoes. The sandwich is traditionally dressed with mayonnaise. Variations, however, on the traditional club sandwich abound. Some vary the protein, for example, a “breakfast club” that includes eggs or a “roast beef club.” Others include ham (instead of, or in addition to bacon) and/or cheese slices. Vegetarian club sandwiches often include hummus, avocado or spinach, as well as substitute the real bacon with a vegetarian alternative. Mustard and sometimes honey mustard are common condiments. Upscale variations include, for example, the oyster club, the salmon club, and Dungeness crab melt.

The sandwich is commonly served with an accompaniment of either coleslaw, or potato salad, and often garnished with a pickle. The coleslaw or potato salad is often reduced to a “garnish” portion, when the primary accompaniment is an order of french fries or potato chips. Due to high fat and carb content from the bread, bacon and dressing, club sandwiches have sometimes been criticized as unhealthy. In 2000, Burger King came under fire for its chicken club, which contained 700 calories, 44 grams of fat (nine of them saturated), and 1,300 milligrams of sodium, as well as the trans fat from the fryer shortening.

Today’s Menu: Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans

 

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread that I topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 94 degrees, very humid and partly sunny out. Not a good day to be out. Well today was Slug Day. I stopped by Cousin’s house as her Kids had a Pop Corn and Lemonade Stand set up in their front yard. So I stopped by and gave all the Kid’s some money. Then it was back home, taking it easy. My lower back is sore and bruised. I fell last night while on my walker and fell backwards. I’m ok except for my back a bit. One of the hazards of a leg amputee1 For Dinner tonight I prepared Turkey Tacos and Refried Beans.

 

We love our Turkey Tacos, great Comfort food for us! When making Turkey Tacos I always use Jennie -O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast! Love all the Jennie -O Turkey Products, always fresh and low calorie and low carb. But Jennie -O Products are difficult to find in this area. Meijer is the only place that now carries it, and they have an okay selection of it. So I started by frying the Ground Turkey till it was no longer pink in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoning it with Sea Salt, Ground Roasted Cumin, and Cilantro Flakes. As the Turkey was finishing cooking I added, 1 can OF Bush’s Chili Beans – Black Beans, 1 package of Old El Paso Low Sodium Taco Seasoning and 2/3 cup Water, continued to cook and stir for an additional 6 minutes. Jennie -O, Bush’s Beans, and Old El Paso together make one fine Taco!

 

For the rest of my toppings I used; Sargento Reduced Fat 4 Cheese Mexican, Sliced Black Olives, Sliced Green Olives, Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce, Sliced Jalapenos, and Shredded Lettuce. For my Taco Shells I used the Old El Paso Stand N’ Stuff Taco Shells (Whole Grain Corn). Add the Jennie – O Turkey and you got you some mouth watering and delicious Tacos! Love these Taco Nights. I also heated up a can of Old El Paso Fat Free Refried Beans for a side for Mom. The Tacos hit the spot! For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 89 degrees and thunderstorms. I was able to get the yard raked, again, before the heavy rain and thunderstorm moved in about 2:00 this afternoon. It is so humid out there! For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Mom wanted the Big Loaded Up Turkey Burger tonight! So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need 2 slices but fried 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use the Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it!

 

I had bought a package of the Jennie – O Lean 93% Lean Turkey Burger Patties at Meijer and had them in the freezer. I grabbed a couple of them last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare the Burger I grabbed a skillet, sprayed it with Pam and added 2 teaspoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, heated it on medium heat. When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise (my favorite Mayo) and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo. The Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise is nice and creamy with excellent flavor, with a little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I baked them for 19 minutes and done. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Today’s Menu: Arby’s Side Salad

It’s just too miserable outside to do too much of anything. 95 degrees, humid and those darn Cicadas are everywhere. It all adds up to not a very big appetite. So I went to Arby’s and picked me and Mom up a couple of Side Salads. It comes with Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Diced Tomato, Iceberg and Leaf Lettuce, and Marzetti Buttermilk Ranch Dressing. I switched dressing when I got it home and used Kraft Classic Catalina Lite Dressing. Take Care all!

One of America’s Favorites – Taquito

June 7, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A taquito (Spanish pronunciation: [taˈkito], Spanish for “small taco”), tacos dorados, rolled taco, or flauta (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈflawta], Spanish for “flute”) is a Mexican food dish

5 rolled beef tacos with guacamole, lettuce, and cheese

that typically consists of a small rolled-up tortilla that contains filling, including beef, cheese or chicken. The filled tortilla is then crisp-fried or deep-fried. The dish is often topped with condiments such as sour cream and guacamole. Corn tortillas are generally used to make taquitos. The dish is more commonly known as flautas when they are larger than their taquito counterparts, and can be made with either flour or corn tortillas.

The taquito or small taco was referred to in the 1917 Preliminary Glossary of New Mexico Spanish, with the word noted as a “Mexicanism” used in New Mexico. The modern definition of a taquito as a rolled-tortilla dish was given in 1929 in a book of stories of Mexican people in the United States aimed at a youth audience, where the dish was noted as a particularly popular offering of railroad station vendors. Taquitos were referred to, without definition, in a 1932 issue of the Los Angeles School Journal.

Two Southern California restaurants are often given credit for their roles in the early development of the taquito. Cielito Lindo was founded by Aurora Guerrero in 1934 and located on Olvera Street in Los Angeles. Guerrero’s daughter used her taquito recipe in opening chain restaurants in Los Angeles, and soon competitors were selling similar dishes. In San Diego, what would become El Indio Mexican Restaurant began selling taquitos during World War II, when tortilla factory owner Ralph Pesqueria, Sr., was asked by workers at the Consolidated Aircraft Company factory across the street for a portable lunch item. Pesqueria, who used a recipe developed by his Mexican grandmother, has claimed credit for introducing the word “taquito” for the dish.

Carnitas flautas with jack cheese, guacamole, salsa fresca, and cotija cheese

Taquitos were among the early Mexican food items developed as a frozen food, with Van de Kamp introducing a successful frozen taquito offering by 1976. The United States government has determined that taquitos must contain at least 15% meat.

Crispy fried taquitos sold in Mexico are often called tacos dorados (“golden tacos”) or flautas. Typical toppings and sides include cabbage, crema (Mexican sour cream), guacamole, green chili or red chili salsa and crumbled Mexican cheese such as queso fresco. “Taquitos” in the Mexican border cities of Tijuana and Mexicali refer to small tacos sold in stands, rather than the rolled taco dish.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 63 degrees and partly sunny out today. I took Mom over to Jungle Jim’s Market this morning. She went in and grabbed a couple of items and put them in my cart. Then she headed back out to the car. She’s having a lot of trouble walking for a long length of time. So I finished the shopping up, I love Jungle Jim’s! As I have said before it has everything from Quail Eggs to Ground Ostrich. Plus older U.S. Grocery Items you can no longer find anywhere else. Anyway back home, I took Mom’s car up and had it washed and then stopped and filled it with gas. Then cleaned up a little outside. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

So I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon.

For Breakfast I Scrambled a couple of Eggs and toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s 1 Carb Wheat Bread. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 62 degrees and mostly cloudy today, with rain moving in by evening. They say by 10:00 or so tonight the temperature will drop to the mid 30’s. Then overnight a possible 1″ of wet snow by the morning! It’s an old but true saying, If you don’t like the weather in Ohio just wait a few hours it will change! With the roads and ground fairly warm little to none of the snow will stick, mainly slush. So anyway I got the cart out and got some yard work in. For Dinner tonight its a Sharp Cheddar and Chicken Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries.

Today’s Menu: Sharp Cheddar and Bacon Turkey Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 72 and sunny out today, beautiful! I had bought some Grass Seed a while back.

When ready I added the Turkey Burger and cooked it for 12 minutes flipping it 3 times. With a minute of cooking time left I added a slice of Kraft Deli Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese. And done!

 

Added the Bacon, Lettuce, some Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise and served it on a Healthy Life Wheat Bun. Just love these Burgers, juicy and delicious, and with the Sharp Cheddar and Bacon it makes it that much better! I love this Mayo, you have to try it! I tried the Hellman’s Spicy Chipotle Mayonnaise on the last Turkey Burger and loved it! It’s nice and Creamy with excellent flavor and a nice little kick to it!

 

I also baked some Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
