Fructose Malabsorption Easy Recipes: Club Sandwich

Club Sandwich2__No Sugarless Gum

Whenever I had the opportunity to order a club sandwich at a restaurant–I would go for it.  Bacon, turkey, mayo, cheese: what’s not to like?  I’m no longer able to do that, but I can make my own, dammit!  This is the first one I’ve had in probably about two years, and I’m really glad it turned out!


  • 2 slices of Whole Foods All Natural Gluten Free Sandwich Bread (or other tolerable bread)
  • 2-3 slices of bacon (make sure it’s uncured!)
  • 2-3 slices of turkey sandwich meat
  • 1 slice of Swiss cheese
  • A few baby spinach leaves (or other tolerable lettuce item)
  • Mayo (make sure to read ingredients)
  • Cheetos (or potato chips if you can’t have corn)


Heat a skillet over medium-high heat to cook the bacon (you’ll know it’s ready if you flick a small amount of water on the pan and it dances around in beads).  Cook the bacon on both sides until desired crispiness, and transfer onto a plate lined with paper towels.

Meanwhile, toast your bread in a toaster.  If it was frozen you’ll probably need to toast it a few times and then throw it on the skillet for a few seconds on each side after the bacon is Club Sandwich__No Sugarless Gumdone.  (Otherwise the middle stays soggy while the crust gets burnt.)

Pile your ingredients on the bread in layers.  Add your Cheetos or chips to the plate!

Time: about 12 minutes.

Elimination Diet safe: YES!
(Each piece of bread has 4g of sugar, so remember that’s 2g of fructose per slice)

  1. As a chef, i can assure you a club sandwich is one of the biggest pains to prepare in the middle of a busy service! I’ll admit though it’s pretty awesome and I’m going to make one for lunch tomorrow, thanks for reminding me! Good choice on the nik naks btw!
