Ultimate Turkey Sandwich

on December 26, 2014

Merry Christmas Dear Reader!

I hope you had a lovely day yesterday. Mr Vohn and I had a wonderful time with his eldest daughter and our grandson, eating too much, playing games and building endless lego sets!

We had a gorgeous free-range local turkey from Gartmorn Farm, a mere 25 miles away, where the poultry are free to roam their acres of grassland which is surrounded by woodland. Sounds idyllic! I simply roasted the turkey, with a quartered onion and apple inside, and covered in thin slices of butter topped with streaky bacon. The turkey was delicious and wonderfully succulent. The thigh meat was the firmest texture poultry meat I have ever seen, presumably due to all that running around they are free to do, and I feared it might be tough but it was melt in the mouth tender and full of delicious flavour.

One of my favourite foodie treats at Christmas is my Ultimate Turkey Sandwich, which I always have for supper late on Christmas Day. It is nice and easy if you have lots of guests too, as you can lay out all the ingredients and invite everyone to make up their own sandwich. Make it a fun event with everyone choosing their own favoured combination.

I go for the same combo every year and it is so good that I often make myself another for breakfast on Boxing Day!

      Excellent! Glad you like. It did feel a bit odd posting a recipe for a simple sandwich but it really is my favourite sandwich of the whole year, every year! 😀
