The secert to a great Club Sandwich

                                                                                                                                                                                                                No one can deny the great-factor of a really good club sandwich. Be it basic with just lettuce, tomatoes, turkey and bacon, or decadent  by adding ham, cheese, cucumber, dressing and a fried egg, they are about the most delicious sandwiches one can have. But the thing that really holds it all together is the bacon. Now I know that it is cliche here on the internet to put bacon up as the end-all be-all of food, but in this sandwich, it really is the glue that holds it together, much the same way it can make or break a B.L.T.
 
The bacon must be cooked correctly to really bring out the rest of the club. It can not remain too gummy by not rendering enough fat out, but it can not be so crisp that it shatters on the palate. That perfect bacon crisp is the hardest part to achieve, and the most important. Nothing ruins an awesome club like un-rendered bacon fat. A properly cured bacon is also necessary. One that is not overly salty and brings with it a slight sweetness really goes well with the other meats and fixings in the sandwich. 
 
Well now I hope that I have instilled a little hunger in you to go out and experiment with this wonderful sandwich. Feel free to put up your favorite combination of club for others as well!

It's 2 a.m. and you just made me hungry. Where am I supposed to go get food? 
 
 
Anyway, I don't think I've ever had a club sandwich. Almost half the things you mentioned I don't like on sandwiches.
