Repulse Bay Hotel Club Sandwich


My recipe for Repulse Bay Hotel Club Sandwich, also known as a Hong Kong Club Sandwich, is based on what I remember enjoying at the old hotel

My recipe for Repulse Bay Hotel Club Sandwich, also known as a Hong Kong Club Sandwich, is based on what I remember enjoying at The Repulse Bay Hotel Verandah Restaurant.

I have added the fried egg and sliced cheese, but if this is a step too far for your taste buds, then by all means revert back the original Club Sandwich as made famous in New York.

This sandwich recipe is taken from my book, Lavender & Lovage, but, I have changed it slightly from the published recipe.

I have swapped the white bread for healthier wholemeal bread, used reduced fat mayonnaise and bacon medallions in place of streaky bacon.

The end result is JUST as delectable as my original recipe, and it makes a fabulous luncheon dish when served with crisps.

Cold cooked chicken is always something I seem to have in the fridge, usually leftovers from a roast chicken sunday lunch.

However, you can use rotisserie chicken, which is available from most supermarkets, or cook a large chicken breast, allow it to cool before slicing it.

One thing I couldn’t replicate, was the little picks that the Repulse Bay Hotel used to use – I remember they had coloured cellophane on the top of them!

I have shared the original recipe in the recipe card, for those of you who prefer white bread and streaky bacon.

Whatever version you make, I hope you enjoy this clubhouse sandwich as much as we all do when I make them, Karen
