- To make 1 club, lay out 3 slices of bread. Butter 1 side of each slice.
- On 1 slice, place the smoked chicken, then the cucumber. Place another slice of buttered bread on top, butter-side-down. Smear mayonnaise on top.
- Place on the lettuce leaf, then the ham. Smear the remaining slice of buttered bread with your favourite chutney or pesto. Place on top of the ham.
- Cut off the crusts or leave on if you prefer, then cut into 4 triangles. Skewer each triangle with a small skewer and arrange on a plate. Serve with potato wedges, below.
Oven-roasted potato wedges
4 large floury potatoes, such as agria, peeled
3 Tbsp olive oil
- Heat the oven to 200C. Line a shallow roasting tray with baking paper.
- Cut the potatoes into large wedges and place in a bowl. Pour over the oil olive and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss well to coat all the wedges in oil and seasoning. Tip out on to the tray in a single layer.
- Place in the oven and roast for 40-45 minutes, until golden, crisp and cooked through.
Note:Potato wedges can be blanched in lightly salted boiling water for 6-8 minutes, before roasting. Roast for about 30 minutes.
Using a bread knife
Use the serrated edge of the knife to cut through the fresh bread. It should not be necessary to apply excess pressure to the knife, let the blade to its job.
