    A sandwich filled with leftovers on Boxing Day often surpasses Christmas dinner itself, and this Boxing Day toasted sandwich recipe from Alyn Williams makes the most of any excess. The chef recommends very finely sliced turkey for the sandwich, which is delicious when layered up with all of the other ingredients.

    How to make Boxing Day Turkey Toastie

    1. Begin by spreading a thick layer of butter on each slice of bread. Arrange 4 slices, unbuttered-side up, on a work surface and spread on the cranberry sauce
    2. Distribute and layer each ingredient evenly on to the cranberry sauce, mixing the cheese with the bread sauce if desired. Season well with salt and pepper and place the remaining 4 slices of bread on top, buttered-side up
    3. Either cook under a medium grill, in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat or in a preheated panini press set to medium. Cook until the cheese melts and the filling is hot through
    4. Remove from the heat, slice in half and serve immediately
