It’s the same every year – our collective excitement as a nation for
the best dinner of the year encapsulates us and our eyes are far bigger
than our bellies.
But, if anything, this is the time we must put the most inspired phrase of our forefathers to good use: ‘waste not, want not’.
1. Avo all day
A turkey sambo to make your friends jealous.
Thinly sliced turkey, white cheddar cheese, big beefsteak tomatoes, rocket, avocado, basil mayo and ciabatta bread.
2. Too Hot, Too Spicy
A classic with a kick.
Turkey laden with cayenne pepper sauce (or Frank’s Hot Sauce to those
in the know) with rocket, caramelised onion and goat’s cheese.
3. New York Deli Style
Toasted poppy seed bagel, loads of turkey slices, red onion, iceberg
lettuce and a generous helping of BOTH mustard and mayonnaise. Enjoy.
4. Rye, rye, rye Delilah
Equal parts turkey and roast beef with Monterey Jack cheese, a
generous dollop of horseradish sauce, as well as sriracha, on
toasted rye bread.
5. Olive turkey
Turkey slices paired with pepperjack cheese with pickled gherkins and
onions (trust us) paired with black olives on ciabatta bread.
6. Go Greek
To use up all those little salad-y bits you said you were going to eat instead of crisps, but you didn’t.
Greek olives and feta cheese turkey on pretzel bread.
7. Cos, why not?
Turkey, mayo, tomatoes, cos lettuce on rye bread. Simple, yet effective.
8. The Classic
Batch bread, cos lettuce, crispy bacon, mayonnaise, lashings of
cranberry sauce and stuffing. Add a dash of sea salt and come cracked
black pepper and you’ve got yourself a sandwich.
All aboard the flavour train.
