We are delighted to be partnered once again with Claire Thomson, or perhaps you may know her from her Instagram alias, 5 O'Clock Apron.

Starting with Claire's Roast Brisket, this recipe uses leftovers from a classic Sunday roast and provides another four portions, at least, of mouthwatering fodder.

A properly indulgent sandwich is guaranteed to put a smile on the faces of all your family. This recipe is great for simple lunches in between Zoom calls! Claire has even provided you with a foolproof recipe for her rich-treacly rye bread, the perfect activity for your lockdown baking repertoire.



  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C. Lightly toast the slices of rye bread and put to one side.

  • Butter one side of each slice of bread and spread evenly with mustard to taste. Evenly divide the remaining ingredients on top of 4 slices of bread, layering the cheese, brisket and sauerkraut.

  • Top each sandwich with remaining bread, place on a tray lined with greaseproof paper and place in the oven for 5 minutes until hot throughout and the cheese is melted.

  • Serve with the pickled cucumbers or gherkins on the side.
