There are two certainties post-Thanksgiving or Christmas, you feel a bit dusty and you have plenty of leftover turkey in the fridge. The best way to tackle that festive hangover is with a Turkey Toastie. With very few ingredients and a tiny bit of time you’ll be well on your way to recovery.
Saint David Dairy Butter
Butter one side of two slices of bread. On the non-buttered side pile up plenty of leftover turkey, generous amounts of brie and a great big dollop of cranberry sauce. Season well with salt and pepper and top each sandwich with the remaining slice.
Place a sandwich in a cold skillet and put over a medium heat. You can place a weight on the sandwich to ensure a more even cook and better melting of the cheese. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until sufficiently golden and gnarly.
Serve with some leftover salad, and perhaps a can of coke, because you deserve it.
Naturally, we'd eat anything that's topped with a pillow of mash potato and golden cheese, so in celebration of our money-saving cuts, we're sharing one of our favourite ways of cooking our beef mince, a Classic Cottage Pie! Not only is it also packed with veg, but it warms you from the inside out, providing you with the perfect dinner to come home to after a cold Melbourne winters day.
Eleni from My Family's Food Diary has shared a spin on a classic Cypriot dish, Ttava lefkaritiko. It'll fill your kitchen with a sweet and flavoursome aroma. The rice breaks down completely as it soaks up all the spiced juices and the beef becomes super tender to bring you the ultimate comfort food.
