> _Club Sandwich Rivals Hash._
> An Atlantic City Hotel serves a club sandwich that is
> composed of broiled ham, cold chicken, lettuce and mayonnaise
> dressing between thin toast.
> This is one of the newest evolutions of a dish that promises
> to rival hash as a general mixing up of foods.
> The club sandwich began mildly as a sandwich of cold chicken
> and lettuce; then warm broiled bacon was added, which in turn
> gave way to ham.
> The addition of mayonnaise dressing with broiled ham seems
> rather startling, but under the mysterious influence of the
> toast, presumably, it has obtained a reputation among the
> hotel's patrons.
> --New York Sun.
