Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Split the club roll 2/3rds of the way down from the top center of the roll with a serrated knife. The roll bottom should be able to sit flat on a pie tin or cookie sheet. Spread Russian dressing generously over the inside of the roll. Layer turkey inside the roll. Place bacon strips over the turkey inside the roll. Layer Swiss cheese across the opening of the roll as a cap (not tucked in roll). Bake for 5-7 minutes until cheese bubbles and starts turning light brown (dark brown does not taste very good). Let stand for a minute to cool cheese so it doesn't burn anyone. To impress your friends, cut diagonally across center and serve while it is still steaming. For a variation use mayonnaise instead of Russian dressing. Add a little heat with some fresh horseradish (especially good with the mayonnaise version). This sandwich is great with ranch flavored corn chips.
