Bread Talk (Part 2)

Hi guys! It’s nice to have you back. Hope you have been eating healthily and staying safe?

I’m sure every one of us has eaten bread in different ways, and with different spreads, including having bread with butter, mayonnaise, jam, fried eggs, stew, tea, coffee etc. However, there’s always more to add to your breakfast menu, especially, if you are a bread lover.

Last week on Bread Talk, we started with French Toast. This week, we’ll be looking at a special kind of sandwich- the Club Sandwich.


A Sandwich is any food where two or more slices of bread serve as the wrapper or container of some other food. There are different kinds of sandwiches which can be made from single fillings like butter, mayonnaise, cheese, tomato, lettuce, etc. You can as well have a combination of them too.

Club sandwiches, though not originally Nigerian, is usually served on local Nigerian flights and exclusive hotels. Nevertheless, you don’t have to be mile-high to taste it as it’s so easy to make, and can be eaten as a snack with a chilled drink, or served as part of a breakfast meal.

It is also an essential part of a packed lunch, just add fruits, a drink, and you are good to go. 


This recipe serves one:

  • 4, or more slices of bread (with the crust cut off – optional)
  • 2 hardboiled eggs – chopped
  • 1 fresh tomato – deseeded and chopped
  • 1 medium carrot – grated
  • A quarter of small cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 Sardine


  • Add the mayonnaise to the chopped carrot, tomato, egg, and cabbage. Mix well, and set aside.
  • In a separate plate, mash the sardine with a fork and mix with the margarine. (Don’t worry if you don’t like the smell of sardines, the margarine helps reduce the strong smell.)
  • Take one slice of bread, spread the margarine and sardine mix on one side of it, and cover with the second slice of bread.
  • Repeat the above step with the remaining two slices. By now, you should have two separate slices of bread that are stuck together by the margarine and sardine mix like this:
  • Now take the first 2 slices, rub the carrot, cabbage, tomato, egg, and mayonnaise mix on one side of it. Then cover with the other two slices.
  • By now, all the slices of bread should be stuck together with 2 fillings of the sardine and margarine mix and 1 filling of the mayonnaise mix in the middle like this:

• Cut the sandwich into your desired shape and size; e.g. triangular, rectangular, etc .

Serve with a chilled drink, or a hot beverage.

We’ve come to the end of Bread Talk! If you are a bread lover like me, I’m sure you will be excited to try this out too. Remember to stay safe. See you next time!
