Heura Christmas Sandwich

Now THAT’S a Christmas sandwich 🎄🥪 {press event}

Not to toot my own trumpet but there was some very high praise being thrown around at last night’s @heurafoods event 😍

“Best Christmas sandwich EVER”
“Better than Pret’s”
“Stop asking me for quotes”

To give some context, while on the @heurafoods press trip in Spain, we were tasked with creating a Christmas sandwich in hopes that we’d be able to hire a space in London and show people that you can still enjoy the things you love as a vegan, even at Christmas! 🌱🎅🏼

As one of the only Brits, I was team leader with the amazing @lloydlng @andreacapodanno & @kion015 in my team. They’d never heard of a Christmas sandwich so it was my job to explain what works and what doesn’t, including the need to use bog standard bread, none of the fancy stuff. We put our heads together and also asked all of you what *you* wanted in your dream sandwich and came up with this festive treat 🥪 Lloyd, Andrea and Kion also added some amazing twists on the classic to pay tribute to Heura’s Mediterranean roots 🇪🇸

Here’s what’s in the sandwich:
🥪 Rosemary & thyme @heurafoods “turkey” seared in extra virgin olive oil and layered with tangy cranberry infused mayo, herby parmentier potatoes mixed with @heurafoods sausage and sprinkled with crispy onions, pickled red cabbage & topped off with a rich mushroom gravy

It was put to a public vote and our sandwich won! 🏆
