Italian Club Bake
30 Min

Our Italian Club Bake is a twist on a good ol' classic sandwich that is on every menu in a sub shop. Just wait until you bite into the warm flaky crust and gooey melted cheese -- you'll immediately fall in love like we did!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (8-ounce) container refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 8 slices deli turkey
  • 8 slices deli ham
  • 8 slices cooked bacon
  • 8 slices provolone cheese
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted peppers, drained and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, divided
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Unroll crescent roll dough without separating triangles. Separate dough into 2 squares along center cut line. Place 1 square of dough into an 8-inch square baking dish; using your fingertips, press dough to fit bottom of baking dish.
  3. Layer with half the turkey, half the ham, and all the bacon. Continue layering with half the provolone cheese, half the roasted peppers, and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Repeat with remaining meats, cheese, peppers, and Italian seasoning. Place remaining square of dough on top. Brush with beaten egg.
  4. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden and heated through. Let cool 5 minutes, then cut and serve.

One of the best things about this recipe is how quickly it can be prepared. Pair it with a nice salad and dinner is complete. Rachel

I have had an unfortunate similar experience with the bottom crust becoming quite soggy. I think this may be due to the high moisture content in the ham and turkey deli meat. I might try to remedy this issue and give it another try by microwaving the meat on top of several layers of paper towel to sop up some of this water first. Another option might be to par - bake the bottom crust by itself and put the cheese on first. the melty cheese might create a moisture barrier.

Oh no, so sorry for your loss. Know that it is a great loss to his fans also. Rest in Peace Art Ginsburg.

This is so delicious!! My husband and daughter loved it too! This was so easy to make! I will definitely make this again!


acb39470, Mr Food, past away several months ago, after a long illness....

what happened to Mr. Food?

I am very sorry to have to tell you that Mr. Food, Art Ginsburg passed away last November. We have all felt this tremendous loss, but are continuing the legacy just as he wanted. Howard Rosenthal, who worked side-by-side with Art for the past 20 years, has now stepped in as the new face of the Mr. Food Test Kitchen. He will never be able to replace Art, but the plan is to continue with the legacy that Art created with quick and easy cooking.

Sounds good but an artery clogger. How about some healthy recipes??

You want healthy recipes? Go to a diabetic recipe site. They have almost the same stuff they just use LOW FAT and NO FAT cheeses, oils, margarine, mayo and bread. OOOH!! it's so simple.

If your reply hadn't started out so snarky I wouldn't have replied. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion

The word would be snarkily. The website is There are so many people who read these recipes and trash them because they consider them to be fattening or they want someone else to figure out the calorie/fat/cholesterol/diabetic exchanges for them. I asked a reasonable question and gave a reasonable suggestion. How that is taken is not my fault. The green tab across the top of this page has a place on which to click. That will take you to Mr. Food's healthy recipes. But, there are people who complain about those also.


I made this and it was very good, but the bottom crust was somewhat wet and mushy. Should I have baked the bottom crust first maybe 10-15 mins. then layered and return to oven? I did bake it 30 total mins.

I have made this and my husband went nuts !! I have also made this and substituted the roasted pepper with olive salad and instead of bacon used hard salami... and it was comparable to a muffaletta! My next attempt is to do ham, turkey & swiss cheese...sprinkle confectioner sugar on top after it bakes and serve with warm raspberry jam...tadah ! Monte Cristo !!!! Yay! You are all doing such a wonderful job carrying on the legacy of Mr. Food....and here may even be a notch up ! Bravo !

this was delish
