Menu Description: "Applebee's signature hot club sandwich with warm sliced ham and turkey, cheddar, tomatoes, mayonnaise and Bar-B-Que sauce on thick-sliced grilled French bread. Served with a side of coleslaw."

Here's a sandwich that Applebee's claims is a signature item for the chain. It's a cross between a club sandwich and a grilled cheese. So, if you like both of those, you'll love this.

For the sliced turkey and ham, go to your deli service counter in the supermarket and get the stuff they machine-slice real thin for sandwiches. This usually tastes the best. If you don't have a service counter, thin-sliced prepackaged meats will also work great.

    • Instructions

      1. Spread the butter evenly over one side of each slice of bread.

      2. Put one slice of bread, butter side down, into a preheated frying pan over medium heat.

      3. Spread the mayonnaise over the unbuttered side of the grilling bread.

      4. Sprinkle half of the Cheddar cheese over the mayonnaise.

      5. Lay the turkey and ham in the pan next to the bread for about 30 seconds to heat it up.

      6. When it's warm, lay the turkey on the cheese.

      7. Place the tomato slices on the turkey.

      8. Spread the barbecue sauce over the tomato slices.

      9. Lay the ham on the tomatoes.

      10. Sprinkle the remainder of the cheese over the ham.

      11. Top off the sandwich with the other slice of bread, being sure that the buttered side is facing up.

      12. By now the first side of the bread should be golden brown. Flip the sandwich over and grill the other side for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown as well.

      13. Remove the sandwich from the pan and cut it in half diagonally. Serve with additional barbecue sauce on the side.

      Makes 1 sandwich.

I've been craving this sandwich but our applebees in our.home town is always so packed its not worth taking the while family. This recipe was so delicious! I will definitely make again. With the addition of bacon!

This isn't quite right. The layers of the original version are bread, bbq sauce, ham, turkey, cheddar cheese with colby jack, then bacon, tomato, lettuce, mayo, and finally bread. Good try though.
