Ham, Turkey and Cheese Waffle Maker Melt

Years ago when Applebee’s restaurants were abundant where I live, I would eat there a good many times. One of my favorite sandwiches was their Clubhouse Grill. Sadly, most Applebee’s are now closed around here, but there are times that I still get a craving for that tasty club. This is my take on that. It has turkey, ham, Colby Jack cheese topped with a tangy bbq sauce then toasted in the waffle maker until the cheese gets all nice and gooey and the bread has that nice crispy crunch….. simple but heavenly. I think next time I might slide in some bacon.

Here’s what you need:

*2 slices of bread per sandwich; I used regular white bread.

*softened butter

*deli sliced honey ham

*deli sliced oven roasted turkey

*2 slices Colby Jack cheese per sandwich

*1 Tbs BBQ sauce per sandwich any variety; or more to taste

*non stick spray

Heat waffle maker and spray with no stick spray.

Butter each slice of bread on one side; this will be the outside of the sandwich.

Place one slice of bread, buttered side down onto the waffle maker. Add a layer of sliced Turkey.

Then place a slice of the cheese over the turkey.

Next, layer on the ham.

Pace another slice of cheese on top of the ham.

Spoon bbq sauce over the cheese.

Place a slice of bread, buttered side up over the bbq sauce and cheese.

Close the waffle maker and cook for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bread is nice and toasted.
