The Baja Turkey Club is a copycat Red Robin recipe with sliced turkey, green chiles, melted pepper jack cheese and smoked bacon, served on toast with fresh tomato and chili aioli. Yum!
Did anyone else hang out at Red Robin a lot in high school? It must be cool how often we are there! Their Baja Turkey Club is an absolute favorite, and as an adult, that hasn’t changed a bit! Since it’s no longer on the menu now, we figured out what they put in that delicious sandwich so we could have it anytime. We present to you one of the tastiest sandwiches you will ever come across.
We make a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches, and the key to making a good grilled cheese is patience. Never let the heat go above medium, let it toast well. This will give the cheese time to melt without burning the bread. If the bread is done baking but the cheese isn’t, turn down the heat and wait carefully and patiently for it to finish. There’s nothing worse than half-melted grilled cheese.
We love the extra kick of pepper jack cheese. If pepper jack isn’t your thing, it’s great with sharp cheddar or provolone.
Can I make Baja Turkey Club vegan?
Sliced turkey and bacon are considered a must for a traditional club sandwich, but you have to make it for yourself! You can always omit it if you don’t eat meat. Doing so will make it more of a super tasty grilled cheese. If you want more texture and crunch in your sandwich, there are plenty of plant-based deli meats and bacon options.
How can I speed up making multiple sandwiches at once?
If you’re trying to have a family dinner, it’s hard to have someone toast one sandwich at a time throughout the evening. If you are making more than 1 or 2 sandwiches, we recommend assembling all the sandwiches at once and then baking them on a baking sheet in an oven preheated to 425°F for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted Cooked, flipping halfway through.
