Arby’s Grand Turkey Club Sandwich

Roasted Turkey, thinly sliced
Cook The Bacon
Before you get ready to assemble your delicious Arby’s Turkey Club sandwich, you’ll want to cook your bacon. My favorite way to cook bacon is to line a flat baking sheet with aluminum foil. Then, I spread out the slices of raw bacon and cook them in a 400F degree oven until the desired doneness is achieved.
I like my bacon perfectly golden and crisp. Some people prefer theirs a little more flabby and that’s fine. The beauty of making it yourself is that you can custom cook it just how you like it. After your bacon has cooked, you can use some tongs to remove it from the baking sheet and set it on a plate that is lined with paper towels. This will allow some of the grease to be absorbed.
Can I Substitute Turkey Bacon?
Yes, you can substitute whatever kind of bacon you prefer. You can use plain bacon, without the pepper or turkey bacon or whatever your favorite brand or variety is. Just make sure you cook it before you begin assembling your sandwich. In our opinion, the bacon is what makes the flavor of the sandwich, so don’t leave it out. Arby’s Turkey Club sandwich wouldn’t be the same without it.
Toast The Buns
If you like a toasted bun, this is a great sandwich to do that with. A toasted bun gives a nice warmth as you sink your teeth into it. It also helps it to feel freshly made, rather than like it could have been sitting around for a little while waiting for someone to come by and consume it.
The other thing a toasted bun does is it provides another dimension of texture to the sandwich. Rather than sinking your teeth into something that’s solely soft, a toasted bun provides a bit of a crispy aspect that’s desirable.
