How To Make A Turkey and Mozzarella Christmas Sandwich Loaf:

More Turkey Curry? If the answer is ‘No’ then this Christmas sandwich loaf is a much more interesting way of using up leftover turkey.

How tasty!?

Serves: 4-6

Preparation time: 15 minutes plus standing time || Cooking time: 0

You’ll Need:

  • 1 circular loaf
  • 3 tbsp cranberry sauce
  • 6-8 long Cos Leaves
  • 150g mozzarella, sliced
  • jar roasted vegetables (Peppers, aubergines, courgettes etc)
  • leftover turkey breast torn into pieces

What To Do:


  1. Firstly, cut the top off the loaf approx ¼ the way down and pull the soft bread out of the centre to make a bowl shape of the crust with a 2cm layer of bread inside.
  2. Secondly, spread half of the cranberry sauce in a thin layer all over the inside of the bread bowl then layer half of the Cos leaves over the bottom, tearing them to fit. Add a layer of mozzarella then the roast veg then the turkey and top with the rest of the cranberry. Repeat this till the bread bowl is full. End with a layer of Cos leaves.
  3. Last but not least, replace the lid and tightly wrap the whole thing in cling film and balance a can on top to weigh it down. Leave to firm up for 1-4 hrs. Cut into slices to serve.

Note: Also dry the roast veg and mozzarella on kitchen roll to avoid the bread getting too soggy.
