This is by no means a traditional turkey club sandwich: It is loaded with deeply roasted turkey-and-pork-belly shawarma, and accented with a flavorful bacon mayonnaise. All those rich ingredients are balanced with fresh tomato slices and peppery baby arugula. And while a classic turkey club has three layers of bread, we ditched the middle layer because we found it makes the sandwich too hard to eat without adding much that the other two bread slices don't already deliver.

The middle slice of bread has been decried, most famously by James Beard, however, if the club was to be robbed of that slice, where would the signature toothpicks that hold it together?
The classic club includes toast, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. No changes or additions necessary. Here it is.
