Turkey Watercress Club Sandwich
Servings 4


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 3/4 pound turkey cutlets each about 1/3 inch thick
  • 3/4 cup watercress leaves plus about 1 cup tender sprigs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • twelve 1/2-inch slices brioche or challah toasted lightly
  • 12 slices bacon cooked until crisp


  • In a shallow dish whisk oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice with pepper and garlic and add turkey. Marinate turkey, turning once, 30 minutes. Discard marinade. Heat a well-seasoned ridged grill pan over moderately high heat until hot and grill turkey 3 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through. Cool turkey on a cutting board and cut into 4 portions.

    In a small food processor or blender puree watercress leaves and mayonnaise until smooth and blend in remaining tablespoon lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.

    Spread watercress mayonnaise on 8 toast slices and top 4 with turkey and salt and pepper to taste. Top turkey with 4 remaining mayonnaise-spread toasts, mayonnaise sides up, and top each portion with bacon, tomatoes, and watercress sprigs. Top with remaining toasts.
