Foodie shares easy air fryer leftover turkey recipe for the perfect toastie

Still staring at the turkey leftovers from Christmas Day sitting in your fridge?

Fear not, we can offer you a Christmas dinner toastie with all the trimmings – thanks to a woman on TikTok.

Foodie @emilyscooking_ has shared a delicious yet simple air fryer sandwich recipe – which she calls a ‘mega toastie’ – that’s racked up more than 800,000 views on the platform so far.

On her Instagram, Emily wrote: ‘Every Christmas I always cook extra so I don’t have to cook for a few days, that way I can enjoy the festive season rather than being in the kitchen.

‘There’s always a competition with the best Christmas sandwich and I’ve tried many – but nothing beats this beast.

‘There’s no order in how you assemble it but one thing that is a must is the extra slice of bread in the middle, drenched in gravy.

‘It makes this toastie extra delicious and tasty.’

Emily’s recipe has gone down a treat on social media with countless users commenting that they can’t wait to try the toastie.

One TikTok user said: ‘I am extremely attracted to this sandwich.’

There was also a lot of praise for the addition of Ross Geller’s ‘moist maker’ layer in the sandwich.

Some users suggested using cabbage instead of lettuce which you may also want to try – and there’s nothing stopping you from adding some tasty extras like any leftover pigs in blankets.
