Double-Decker Turkey and Avocado Sandwiches

Layering a sandwich is an easy way to make it more attractive. Use wholegrain, multigrain bread for the highest fibre content.




Recipe Ingredients:

3 tbsp good-quality mayonnaise
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Butter, softened, for spreading
12 large slices multigrain bread
2 handfuls salad leaves
5.5 oz (150 g) thinly sliced turkey breast
2 avocados, thinly sliced
1/2 lemon

Recipe Methods:

1  Mix the mayonnaise and mustard together, and season well. Butter eight slices of bread on one side only, and four slices carefully on both sides.
2  Lay four of the single side-buttered slices on a chopping board, buttered-sides up. Top each slice with one-quarter of the salad leaves, pressing them into the bread gently. Lay one-quarter of the turkey on top of each and spread over a thin layer of the mayonnaise.
3  Put a double-side-buttered slice of bread on each sandwich, then layer one-quarter of the avocado over each, drizzle with a little lemon juice, and season well.
4  Top each with a final slice of bread, buttered-side down and press down well to hold everything together. Carefully trim the crusts off the bread and cut into halves on the diagonal to serve, or pack into a container for transportation.
