Christmas leftovers sandwich

This triple-decker club sandwich is the perfect way to pack all your Christmas leftovers into a self-indulgent treat.


  • 3 slices bread (from a pre-sliced loaf)
  • butter, for spreading
  • mayonnaise, for spreading (optional)
  • about 60g/2¼oz leftover turkey, thinly sliced
  • 2–3 thin slices cooked ham, thinly sliced
  • few thin slices mild cheese (such as emmental, gruyère, cheddar etc)
  • soft lettuce leaves
  • 2–3 cold pigs in blankets, halved lengthways
  • 3–4 tbsp coleslaw
  • gherkins, to serve
  • Good quality crisps or skinny fries, to serve


  1. Sandwich two of the bread slices together and toast in the toaster (leaving soft bread on the inside). When done, spread the soft bread with butter and mayonnaise (if using). Butter the untoasted bread on both sides.

  2. Put the turkey on one of the toasted slices of bread, then a layer of ham, then cheese. Top with the buttered untoasted bread. Add the lettuce, then the pigs, and dot the slaw over the top. Sandwich the other toasted bread slice on top. Cut in half or quarter and use a few cocktail sticks to secure the sandwich, with a gherkin or two on top. Eat with crisps or fries.
