Quick Demo


a) Walnuts - You can toast the walnuts, which will add a light smoky flavour. Just lightly toast in a dry frying pan over low-medium heat until fragrant and very slightly charred, shaking frequently. 
b) Subs and Extras - You can sub the walnuts for Pecans. Crispy bacon is always welcome, as is very finely diced red onion or spring onion. Dried cranberries also go very nicely!
c) Calories - Assuming 2 tsp butter per sandwich. Calories for one sandwich:
