Doesn't it look good?


  • 75g (3oz) leftover honey roast parsnips
  • 1-2 tbsp Hellman's mayonnaise with chilli or caramelised onion
  • 2 slices thick crusty bread
  • Large knob butter
  • 1/2 Knorr mixed herb flavour pot
  • 2 round lettuce leaves, trimmed
  • 3 slices tomato
  • 2 slices turkey
  • 1 thick slice cooked stuffing or 1 stuffing ball crumbled


1 Mash the parsnips with the mayonnaise until thick and smooth and set aside.

2 Spread the butter thinly on both sides of the bread. Spread the Knorr herb pot onto one side of each slice of bread. Heat a chargrill pan until hot and smoking and chargrill the bread on both sides until golden. This should only take about 30-40 seconds on each side.

3 Spread one slice of toast thickly with the parsnip puree. Arrange the lettuce, tomato, stuffing and turkey over the top and cover with the remaining toast. Serve immediately with extra mayonnaise on the side.

Cook's tip:
Try spreading a thin layer of Cranberry sauce over the turkey for that beautiful sweet christmas flavour that goes so well with turkey. Halved chipolata sausages can be used instead of stuffing if liked. You can zap your turkey and stuffing in the microwave for a minute or two for a warm turkey filling.
