The “Hillbilly Club” Sandwich

Sharing is caring!

hillbilly club sandwich


“Don’t get mad or anything, but you should call this a “Hillbilly Club!” Yep. Those were my hubby’s exact words to me when I asked if I should post this after it received such a positive response on Facebook!  I had no idea of what I was going to call it…a “Deli Club”? But it has garlic bologna, and my personal deli meat fave, olive and pimento loaf on it! Not exactly a “high end” deli sandwich, but to us, it’s a classic! 😉

And I reckon I am just a little bit “hillbilly”! I don’t care much for fancy, gaudy things, I run around barefoot all summer long, I love to get my hands dirty in my gardens, and I just prefer things to be simple. That’s truely what makes me happy. (And I probably had an ice cold beer with mine to boot! 😉 )

But I’m sure ol’ “Jed Clampet” would appreciate a sandwich like this, and “Granny” would approve! 😉 I know my hubby’s eyes about popped out cartoon-style when I brought him his! He was expecting just a basic lettuce, tomato and bologna sandwich, but instead, I surprised him with double-decker, old fashioned club sandwich! 

He’s definitely a 2-sandwich kind of guy. One is never enough, and two makes him just plain stuffed to the gills. So this a very happy medium! Plus four slices of bread is too much. It seems just the two of us alone can go through a loaf in a blink of an eye, and that of course just isn’t good. So one less slice is at least a baby step forward, I say! 😉 

Though I prefer swiss cheese on mine, the hubs likes his “hillbilly all the way!” with good ol’ American cheese, spicy brown mustard, and Hellmann’s mayo! I added some nice lean crisp strips of bacon, cool crunchy lettuce, and some tomatoes from my garden! I must say, these sandwiches were dang good! 

Club-style sandwiches are always more fun , aren’t they? 😀 Lightly toasted, cut corner-to-corner, and of course, picked with a frilled toothpick. 😉 It makes you feel like you’re special. 😉 

So next time you go to fix up some vittles for lunch, don’t forget about “the club”, as you just don’t see them around much anymore. They will definitely surprise, and bring lots of smiles no matter what you put on them. 😉 😀 

I truly hope you enjoy this and whip up a few soon! They really are so much more fun than a plain ol’ bologna sandwich! Take care all, count your blessings not your losses, and I’ll see ya’ll tomorrow! 😉 ~Kelly

    Lol mine would want fried spam or Bologna in his. I've never had garlic Bologna or pimento and olive loaf but I like all of those things so I would probably like it. My fav hillbilly meat would be ham and cheese loaf lol
