Pret Turkey and Trimmings Toastie, £4.65
A new contender for Pret, but this was essentially like any old regular cheese-and-ham toastie with a few extra festive add-ons. No skimping on good quality ingredients here: a solid herby pork stuffing foundation, thick-cut Wiltshire ham, mature cheddar cheese and slightly dry turkey (to be honest, isn’t all turkey dry?) served on soft, seeded bloomer bread The magic only happens when it’s all toasted, because when that cheese gets all melty and gooey it acts as a lovely glue to bring it all together. It desperately needed another dollop of that caramelised onion chutney and sage mayonnaise to inject some moisture.
How Christmassy? A bit like your Boxing Day hangover. It could go either way.
