What Is On A Turkey Club Sub Sandwich?

Make a batch of delicious cold subs for your friends with our recipe! It contains several tasteful cold cuts for everyone’s enjoyment. Our take on the club sub is a good in-between of Jersey Mike’s and a classic club sandwich.

A club sandwich should contain poultry, like chicken or turkey, ham or fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Our turkey club sub, however, consists of turkey ham, bacon, lettuce, red wine vinegar, and a bunch of spices. But don’t let these ingredients limit your imagination.

You can always customize your subs to your liking. A good example of doing so is switching your meats. There are several cold cut meat types that you can change into depending on your preference or diet.

You don’t really like the taste of turkey? Switch it up with shredded, grilled chicken. Not a big fan of bacon? Throw in some peppery salami on there for a bit of kick instead. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your cold meats for an amazing sub experience.

Don’t skimp on the toppings, but don’t overcrowd your sub rolls either! You can go for the classic bacon, turkey ham, lettuce, and mayo. Then try it out with some red wine vinegar, tomatoes, and provolone like our recipe. Or give other options a try, such as Jersey Mike approved toppings like dill pickles, cherry pepper relish, or banana peppers a shot. This is a very versatile sandwich, so add your favorite toppings to your heart’s desire!

Pair our club sub up with some Sweet Potato Chips for the perfect meal. Make this ahead or assemble them as easily as we did for a quick, filling lunch!

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I make this club sub vegan-friendly?

Switch your bacon for tempeh, shiitake mushrooms, or seitan. Or you can even try making your own tasty Vegan Bacon at home! To replace your turkey ham, go for a healthy serving of tofu and any vegan ham products like Verisoy that you may find in the grocery. Lastly, to replace the mayo, feel free to change it up to some hummus, creamy guacamole, or tahini.

Can I freeze my sub sandwich?

You certainly can! To do this, we recommend a few tips to still get you the best club sub dish. Assemble your sandwich by placing a thin layer of any sort of fat like some leftover bacon oil. It will be the protective layer on your sandwich to keep it from being soggy. For the condiments, place them between the meats and the cheese. When reheated, the cheese will trap those delicious condiments in between to make it even flavorful. Once you follow this arrangement, store them in the freezer wrapped in foil or stored in a gallon zip-top bag. These will keep for up to 3 months.

How do I reheat my frozen sub sandwich?

Heat your oven to 350 degrees F. Take your subs off their foil or zip-top bag, then arrange them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake the subs for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the meat is heated through.
