Roll up for Christmas leftovers

Christmas is over... The mince pies are gone, the sweetie tubs are half full of empty wrappers and the ones nobody really likes, and the fridge is full of leftovers. Instead of planning to make things with the leftovers, before forgetting and then finally binning it all which is a terrible waste, why not try out these delicious recipes from Kingsmill using their soft white, 50/50 or tasty wholemeal rolls which are currently available in limited edition Christmas packs.

My plan had been to try out the fantastic Pigs in Blankets under a Duvet recipe, however the pigs in blankets failed to make it to the fridge before my pigs in onesies scoffed them all, so I settled for a tasty wholemeal roll stuffed with slices of cold turkey & stuffing and smothered in cranberry sauce which really hit the spot.


Former England rugby captain and Celebrity MasterChef winner Phil Vickery has come up with some tasty recipes to make the most of your Christmas leftovers using Kingsmill's tasty selection of rolls, why not give them a go...

- 3 (or 4, depending on size) cooked cocktail sausages wrapped in bacon (leftover from Christmas dinner)
- A few finely cut slices of cooked red onion
- 2 tsp of Cranberry sauce
- Juice of 1/4 lemon

METHOD makes one roll
- Lightly toast the roll under a moderate grill and cool slightly
- Spread the mayonnaise on to both halves of the roll
