Turkey cobb club

Chop any leftover eggs from the turkey cobb salad and mix with mayonnaise and any leftover dressing. Slice and use any remaining leftover salad ingredients and the egg mayo mixture in a triple-decker sandwich on lightly toasted bread.


  1. Cook the eggs in a large pan of boiling water for 8 mins. Drain, transfer to a bowl of cold water and leave to cool.

  2. Heat the grill to high. Put the pancetta on a baking sheet lined with foil and grill for 3-4 mins, or until crisp. Pat with kitchen paper to remove any excess oil and leave to cool.

  3. Whisk the oil, vinegar, mustard, parsley and garlic together. Peel and halve the eggs. 

  4. Arrange the turkey, chicory, avocado, tomatoes, pancetta and eggs on a large platter. Drizzle over the dressing, season and serve with the seeds on the side for sprinkling over.
