Ingredients

  • 4 thick slices of bread
  • 4 slices of leftover roast meat – this can be beef, pork or lamb
  • 4 slices of Swiss cheese
  • 8 gherkins, sliced in half (we recommend Opies Cocktail Gherkins)
  • 2 squeezes of American mustard
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Thinly sliced red onions
  • Handful of fresh spinach
  • 50g butter, softened
  • 1tsp olive oil

 

Method

  1. Begin with two slices of the bread. Spread with a generous amount of American mustard, top with the spinach, red onions, leftover roast meat then the Swiss cheese and gherkins.
  2. Spread a little mayonnaise over the two other slices of bread and sandwich together.
  3. Take a frying pan big enough to fit the two sandwiches in comfortably. Add ½ the butter and olive oil and cook until golden and crunchy, flip over and add the last of the butter and cook until golden and crunchy.
  4. Serve the sandwiches straight away with extra mustard and mayonnaise.
