Boxing Day turkey toastie

A sandwich filled with leftovers on Boxing Day often surpasses Christmas dinner itself, and this Boxing Day toasted sandwich recipe from Alyn Williams makes the most of any excess. The chef recommends very finely sliced turkey for the sandwich, which is delicious when layered up with all of the other ingredients.

Distribute and layer each ingredient evenly on to the cranberry sauce, mixing the cheese with the bread sauce if desired. Season well with salt and pepper and place the remaining 4 slices of bread on top, buttered-side up

Either cook under a medium grill, in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat or in a preheated panini press set to medium. Cook until the cheese melts and the filling is hot through

It is always a pleasing moment when a talented apprentice steps out and succeeds on their own terms. After working as head chef at Marcus Wareing at The Berkeley for five years, Alyn Williams has done exactly that; taking over the Westbury in the autumn of 2011 and quickly winning a Michelin star, which he maintained until he parted ways with the restaurant in 2019.
