We had this for lunch recently and it was fantastic. We enjoyed it so much that we've already had it twice this week! We did it following the recipe as above although we used white bread and made our own homous and it was very enjoyable. We had it with a side of potato salad and really enjoyed it. I think many other sides would work with it as well from crisps to many other types of salads. Highly recommended lunch and lots of options to keep it varied, especially by changing the sides you have with it. I can see us having this lunch a lot this summer and I am so pleased we found this recipe. I have never been a fan of club sandwiches before but really loved these!

jjbell100 I think you will find that the creamy looking layer is houmus. I love this recipe as it is easy and filling.

Is it my imagination or is there some kind of egg or creamy mixture in the picture above?

Boring. Try roast vegetables, red kidney beans and hummus in a wrap with lovely salad instead. Or if it has to be a club sandwich try chargrilled portobello mushroom and red peppers with fresh tomatoes, sliced avocado and slightly dressed salad leaves.
