Christmas Mincemeat Sandwich with Panettone

Ok, so it it’s not the best photographic subject but whoa: what a fabulously festive treat (breakfast in this case, served alongside a double espresso). It felt like a naughty Nigella kinda thing but is actually inspired by Nigel Slater and his simply wonderful ‘Christmas Chronicles’ book. Try with out delay and ‘Merry Christmas!’

Serves 1

What you need…

2 x slices panettone

A good dollop of mincemeat

Butter for spreading/frying

A sprinkle of icing sugar (optional)

What to do…

Spread the mincemeat evenly over one slice of bread and pop the other slice on top to create a sandwich. If you have a ‘lean mean grilling machine’, simply preheat it and then butter your sandwich on the outside of the panettone slices, pop it in the machine for about 2 minutes and ‘voila!’ – your naughty festive sandwich is complete.

Alternatively, melt a knob of butter in a small frying pan and then fry the sandwich on one side until golden brown. Then flip it and fry the other side until equally golden.

Sprinkle with icing sugar if you’re feeling the need to add an extra touch of Christmas sparkle – enjoy – absolutely delicious!

Nigel Slater

How easy…

Festively ridiculously!
