Three slices of bread are used to make this sandwich, rather than two, so a club sandwich is taller than a regular sandwich. This makes an interesting choice for teatime, so you might like to learn how to make a classic club sandwich. You should not use too much filling in each sandwich, else these can be messy to eat.
