Turkey and Mozzarella Christmas Sandwich Loaf


More Turkey Curry? If the answer is ‘No’ then this Christmas sandwich loaf is a much more interesting way of using up leftover turkey.

Serves: 4-6

Preparation time: 15 minutes plus standing time

Cooking time: 0

You’ll need:

1 circular loaf

3 tbsp cranberry sauce

6-8 long Cos Leaves

150g mozzarella, sliced

jar roasted vegetables (Peppers, aubergines, courgettes etc)

leftover turkey breast torn into pieces

What to do:

Cut the top off the loaf approx ¼ the way down and pull the soft bread out of the centre to make a bowl shape of the crust with a 2cm layer of bread inside.

Spread half of the cranberry sauce in a thin layer all over the inside of the bread bowl then layer half of the Cos leaves over the bottom, tearing them to fit. Add a layer of mozzarella then the roast veg then the turkey and top with the rest of the cranberry. Repeat this till the bread bowl is full. End with a layer of Cos leaves.

Replace the lid and tightly wrap the whole thing in cling film and balance a can on top to weigh it down. Leave to firm up for 1-4 hrs. Cut into slices to serve.

Note: dry the roast veg and mozzarella on kitchen roll to avoid the bread getting too soggy.
