Ultimate Christmas leftovers sandwich


We look forward to the leftovers of a Christmas dinner just as much as the meal itself, and while we certainly wouldn't say no to a leftover turkey curry or pie, sometimes it's the simple things that shine the brightest. Use this basic sandwich recipe as a blueprint for your own Boxing Day lunch, incorporating everything that hasn't been snapped up by the family already to create an epic feast on the 26th.
