Serves: 2

Prep and cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

For the spread

  1. 1 romaine lettuce leaf
  2. 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  3. 1/2 clove garlic, crushed

For the sandwich

  1. 3 slices of whole-wheat bread, lightly toasted
  2. 60-70gr sliced leftover turkey breast or leg or both
  3. 40-50g leftover stuffing
  4. 3pcs turkey bacon-wrapped chicken sausages, cut in half lengthways
  5. 2 slices of large tomato
  6. 2 slices red onion
  7. 1 medium egg, hardboiled

Method

To make the spread, slice a Romaine lettuce leaf lengthways and shred it into small pieces. Mix these with a tablespoon of light mayonnaise, to which you can add half a clove of crushed and minced garlic.

Spread the garlic-lettuce-mayo mix evenly over all three bread slices.

On the bottom slice, layer the turkey and sausages over the mayo mix. Top the meat with tomatoes.

On a second slice of bread, spread the leftover stuffing, the egg and the onion.

Carefully place the second bread over the first, taking care to ensure the sandwich is balanced. Take your third bread slice and place it on top, with the mayo side facing down.

Place skewers on all four sides of the bread to hold everything together. Finally, slice the sandwich horizontally and serve with fries.
