Have you ever had a Country Club Melt at Perkins? Have you ever heard of Perkins!? If you answer these questions with a big n.o. I'm sorry to hear that. But, this might help. The Country Club Melt consists of melty American cheese, bacon that is sometimes crispy, tomatoes (not for me) and turkey. Seriously out of control good. This is a sandwich that we would crave after the bar. With a side of sweet honey mustard and cool ranch it is quite unstoppable.
I thought I would put my own spin on the classic and make it at home. So easy...and awesome since I have a panini press--thanks sis (Jenna). This sandwich is out of control good and you really don't need a panini press but it really does help.
Mr. Schwartz wasn't around to experience this one and I know he is going to be a sad pup when he finds out...so let's keep this between us, shall we? Thanks, I appreciate your help.
Give this a shot for a quick and easy weeknight dinner.

And again. I did have full intention of taking more pictures...you know the kind that have a bite taken out of the side to show the gooey goodness? Well, I put my camera down to take a bite....just for the picture you know. I took the bite. And another, and another, and then I finished it all. If you really want to see what it likes with a bite of out it, you will have to make your own.
Country Club Melt, Redone
2 slices of French bread (or whatever you have on hand)
4 slices of bacon, cooked
2 slices of American cheese
1 grilled chicken breast
Drizzle of ranch
Place cheese on both sides of the bread. Layer with bacon on each side. Place grilled chicken on one side, drizzle ranch on the other. Put the two sides together and put into a preheated panini press or into a frying pan to make like a grilled cheese. Cook until cheese is melted and the bread is crispy.
