THE CHRISTMAS SANDWICH

THE CHRISTMAS SANDWICH

This is Christmas in a seriously pleasing mouthful and there’s even turkey gravy on the side. A sandwich that has turkey, cranberry ketchup, brussel tops and stuffing. Oh, and don’t forget the bread sauce. One for the leftovers as I can’t imagine even the keenest cooks might want to make this from scratch but then I might be wrong!
