Friday Foods #3

This installment of Friday Foods is highlighting a delicious and easy recipe for two. It is a Turkey, Chorizo, & Manchego Sandwich with Chive Aioli. I found this recipe in an edition of HELLO! and thought it sounded fun to try. Peter and I decided to try making it together.


3 cloves Garlic, peeled; crush two and halve the third

2 Egg Yolks

1 tbsp Dijon Mustard

300ml Olive Oil, plus extra for drizzling

Juice of 1/2 Lemon

Small handful of Chopped Chives

Salt & Pepper

4 large slices of Sourdough Bread

200g of cooked turkey (Peter bought raw and cooked it)

8 slices cooked Chorizo

4 slices Manchego or Mature Cheddar Cheese (we used lacto-free Cheddar Cheese)

Vegetable oil for frying

First make the aioli. Put the crushed garlic, egg yolks, and mustard into a food processor or blender (we used a food processor). Make it into a paste and drizzle in the olive oil while it is running. This will turn into a mayo-like sauce. Add the lemon juice and chopped chives and blend again. Season to taste. There will be plenty of aioli left over to use for the next few days.

Making the aioli and cooking the turkey

Drizzle the slices of bread on one side with olive oil and rub the bread with the halved garlic. Turn the bread over and spread some of the aioli. Add the turkey, chorizo, and slices of cheese, then top with another slice of bread.

Heat up a frying ban with vegetable oil, then wipe with a kitchen paper. Fry the two sandwiches, weighing them down with a clean pan for two minutes on each side, or until toasted.

Cut in half and serve with more aioli.

This was a simple and yummy recipe. Peter and I decided that next time we would make it without the turkey, but we like having a recipe for aioli.
