Today we share with you the first of many Kootenay Spice recipes that use our homemade tortillas. We are making a 3-layer grilled tortilla clubhouse sandwich. This is one of those recipes that while you’re making it, you just know is going to become a family favourite!
We are very fortunate to have received a grill/Panini press as a wedding shower gift this past summer. We love to use it for quesadillas, which eventually led us to this take on a clubhouse sandwich.
This recipe will make 2 sandwiches (one at a time) and requires the following
6 tortilla shells
5oz cooked chicken breast, chopped (approx. 1 breast)
5oz cooked ham, chopped
6 strips of bacon, chopped
3 fresh green onions, chopped
1 medium tomato, sliced
1.5 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
3-4 Tbs mayonnaise or whipped dressing
sour cream and salsa
Preheat your grill to medium-high or 375˚F.
Pre-grill the top 2 tortillas until they are just beginning to get crispy. The bottom tortilla will cook long enough, it does not need pre-grilled.
Lightly mayo the bottom tortilla and place it on the bottom of the Panini press. Evenly sprinkle on the chicken, ham and then cheese.
Add one of the pre-grilled tortillas and close the press for 3-4 minutes, until cheese is softening.
Sprinkle on the bacon, evenly distribute the tomato slices and top with chopped green onion. Spread mayo on the third tortilla. Place it (mayo side down) on top of the chives.
Close the press for 4-5 minutes.
Take the sandwich off of the press and let stand 10-15 minutes.
Cut into wedges with a large, sharp knife and serve with sour cream and salsa.
Enjoy your grilled tortilla clubhouse and be sure to try out your own variation based on your favourite flavours!
