Love your leftovers: Hang Fire’s Ultimate Maple Christmas Sandwich recipe
The sweetest of Christmas sandwiches – and a handy video for all the visual learners out there
Turkey leftovers are destined for one thing, and it's not the bin: try this mega sandwich to end all sandwiches. It's full and oozy, stacked and tricky to fit your chops around, just like all the best sarnies. But better still? It involves Maple syrup. Now we have your attention!
Get ready for this. It includes pork smash burgers made from extra stuffing, maple-glazed bacon, leftover turkey and even a Brussels Sprout Slaw – all brought together with lashings of pure Canadian maple syrup!
Canadian maple syrup and this beast of a sandwich will help add a little extra joy to that lull between Christmas and New Year. To bring you up to speed, Maple from Canada is the official UK website and brand for Québec Maple Syrup Producers (QMSP). Québec supplies 72% of the world’s maple syrup, a 100% natural sweetener free from artificial additives or flavourings. In 2020 alone, production grew to 175m pounds of maple syrup and it comes in four different styles and colours, each with its own characteristics and taste.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary (yes we did) a sandwich is: "an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with a filling between them, eaten as a light meal". But we think you'll agree there's a lot more to this Christmas sandwich...
Sure, it is a bit of work to put together, but heck, it’s only Christmas once a year, so treat yourselves to the Ultimate Christmas Maple Sandwich. Don't forget to let us know if you make it and if you feel it was worth the effort – you know it will be for the maple glazed bacon alone.
BBQ restaurateurs Sam and Shauna think it's the perfect time of year to try out some weird and wonderful ways to up your game this year with every festive meal and there's still time to pimp your Christmas Day feast.

“The great thing about a big Christmas dinner is that there are so many different areas to experiment with," says Shauna. “You can do all sorts with roast potatoes, carrots, sprouts, cabbage and Maple syrup is such a versatile ingredient that compliments many Christmas flavours, from turkey to sprouts to pudding."
Christmas is coming and the turkey is getting sweet
“We encourage Brits to dig into their cupboards and spice racks this Christmas and see if they can find a new taste – that may well become a beloved family tradition," adds Shauna.
