  • 1 chicken breast
    sliced in half lengthwise and marinated in a little olive oil, garlic, basil and paprika
  • 6 slices bacon cooked (either on top of grill with aluminum foil or baked or fried on stove top
  • 4 slices chorizo slightly grilled or pan fried
  • 3 slices ham
    thin luncheon meat (slightly grilled or pan fried)
  • 1 egg sunny side up either fried on stop top or on grill with aluminum foil
  • 3 slices cheese
    cheddar or any kind you like
  • 3 slices bread whole wheat slices (or whatever kind you like)
  • 2 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoon mayonnaise (Japanese brand or any kind you like)
  • ½ cup arugula
    (also known as rocket)
  • 3 slices tomato


  • Grill your chicken for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear. Cook the bacon until crispy and set on paper to drain the fat and set aside. Saute the ham and chorizo until just golden brown and fragrant and set aside. Make a fried sunny side up egg (my boys like theirs well done so I break the yolk during the cooking process) and set aside. You can cook up anything you want on your sandwich maybe you like grilled sliced beef or grilled vegetables whatever you like and have on hand will be perfect for your triple decker sammie.
  • Toast the bread and spread with your favourite condiment or Japanese mayonnaise and grainy mustard. (Maybe you like HP sauce or ketchup or even horseradish sauce instead, have fun)
  • Assemble to triple decker sammie: First place down a slice of toasted bread with the Japanese mayo and then put on the grilled chicken, then a slice of cheese on top so it will melt, then add some arugula (rocket) and then a layer of tomato (Salt and pepper) and then top with  a slice of toasted bread with Japanese mayo and grainy mustard on both sides. Next add your cooked ham and chorizo and then some more cheese and more arugula (rocket) then add your fried egg, crispy bacon and then finally top with your last slice of toasted wheat bread with one side Japanese mayo and grainy mustard spread on one side.
  • Cut your epic triple decker sandwich in half on an angle or in 4 wedges and serve with your favourite olives and pickles. Enjoy!


If you are not dining with teenagers, a few slices of avocado are absolutely delicious on this sammie.
