Take-out Tuesday, Club Sandwich in a Roll

A club sandwich is my idea of perfection~ lots of different flavors,  layers of meats, freshly cooked bacon, a little cheese, crisp lettuce, ripe tomatoes,  on a tasty toasted bread

This is a little bit of an inside out club sandwich, the meat and cheese is on the inside and the lettuce and tomato on the outside


Carefully unroll the breadstick dough into a rectangle.  You don’t have to pinch the pieces together because you are going to cut along those lines in a minute


Spread with mayo and mustard


Pile on a layer of ham, turkey and cheese


Lay bacon across


Carefully roll up as tightly as possible


Don’t worry, this is very forgiving


Slice roll in half first, then slice those pieces in half again, until you have 8 slices…which somehow I only ended up with 7


Like I said, it’s very forgiving…


The end slice is especially “purdy”


Bake at 375 until golden and delicious


Serve the rolls with lettuce and tomato on the side

These sandwich slices are just as delicious leftover and reheated

Club Sandwich in a Roll

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Course Appetizer, Main Course
Cuisine American
Servings 8


  • 1 can breadstick dough 8 pieces
  • 4 oz thinly sliced ham
  • 4 oz. thinly sliced turkey
  • 4 oz. sliced cheese [I used Gouda]
  • 5-6 slices crispy bacon
  • 2-3 T mayonnaise
  • 2 T mustard [I used honey mustard]
  • lettuce
  • fresh tomato slices


  • Unroll dough into a rectangle on a cutting board. Spread with mayonnaise and mustard.
  • Lay meats and cheese on in even layers. Top crosswise with bacon slices.
  • Carefully roll dough up into a log as tightly as possible.
  • Cut roll in half along center perforation. Cut each half in half again, along perforation lines, and again until you have 8 slices. Note: if you try to cut the roll beginning at one end the roll will smush and come apart. Refrigerating before cutting will make it easier also.
  • Lay sandwich slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, until bread is cooked and golden. Makes 8 slices
  • Serve with lettuce and tomato slices if desired


Note: if you try to cut the roll beginning at one end the roll will smush and come apart. Refrigerating before cutting will make it easier also.

You could also cut the slices in 1/4s and serve them as appetizer bites, skewered with a small piece of lettuce and a cherry tomato, similiar to the BLT skewers in the recent BLT BBQ Bloody Marys

This will be a hit no matter how you serve it!

I have made lots of variations of this recipe,  but not the club sandwich version… it is a new favorite around our house, and it’s going to be great for picnics and football season!  You can assemble it ahead of time and bake later or bake and reheat, perfect for Take-out Tuesday!

    I never thought of doing a club sandwich as a roll. Hmmm, maybe an appetizer, too?

  9. joybee83 says:

    Very delicious. I imagine you could use home made dough too, maybe an italian bread dough. This would make a great appetizer/snack for watching football. Pinning 🙂

  10. Kim says:

    Yum! I’ve never thought to use bread stick dough in this way. What a great idea! I love the tomato and lettuce on the outside, too.

  15. Karen says:

    Great party food since it can be prepared ahead of time and baked when serving.

  16. laurie says:

    I want one (or 2 or 3) of these right this minute. That looks so good. So glad you shared this, Jenna. I’ll be trying it. laurie

  17. That looks so darn good! Ok I’m going to be blond- do you mean you cut it lengthwise first and then cut the slices from the two halves?

    • Oh, no, sorry, I meant instead of cutting the roll into slices from one end to the other, cut the roll in half in the middle and then cut each of these pieces into 4 slices. The roll will squash if you start on one end, it just makes it easier to start in the middle~ I hope this answers your question Liz, sorry for the confusion!

  18. Kitty says:

    Oh my goodness, I just saw this at Miz Helen’s Full Plate party! This looks like such a fun idea, Jenna, and perfect party food. I can’t wait to try this recipe soon.

  22. Kitty says:

    I made this tonight, Jenna! My one son and a grandson loved it, and so did I. I had to use crescent rolls because my grocery didn’t have the breadsticks. Would you mind if I posted it, giving a link to you for where I got the inspiration?

    • hi Kitty! I am so glad it was a big hit! Of course you can post it, I would be flattered! It’s funny, I made it for lunch for company over the weekend and used crescent rolls for the same reason and it turned out great too~I’m sure you could use any dough. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me feedback, I just love to hear that my recipes were enjoyed and that they worked out 🙂 Have a great week! Jenna

  23. Miz Helen says:
