There are so, so many great Christmas sandwiches out there - making the very best of festive ingredients. Over the next few weeks, we'll be adding more and more of the best Christmas sandwiches London has to offer...
Available from 2 November
Paul's offerings this year include a Christmas Turkey sandwich (turkey, smoky streaky bacon, spinach, cream cheese and horseradish sauce in a sage, onion and cranberry baguette, £4.95) and a Boxing Day Sandwich (turmeric baguette filled with slices of ham hock and mature cheddar, topped with piccalilli and Batavia leaves, £4.45). But we're rather taken by the vegan Stuffed with Stuffing Sandwich which is as it sounds - sweet potato and chestnut stuffing, vegan pâté, grilled carrots and salad, topped with cranberry sauce, all in a sage, onion and cranberry baguette (£4.65).

Sainsbury's aren't hooding back this Christmas with the main event - essentially a Beed Wellington in a bun. That's made of slices of sous-vide beef with a truffle flavour mushroom duxelles, gravy mayo and festive red cabbage and spinach - with a croissant roll taking the place of the pastry. They also have the vegan Rudolph’s Night Before Christmas Feast Sandwich with a fresh carrot and root veg patty, glazed carrot ribbons and a caramelised carrot chutney.

Marks and Spencer is once again teaming up with Shelter, giving money to the charity for every sandwich sold. This year, they include Naughty and Spice Christmas Feast (turkey, hot cranberry sauce, chorizo-style pork stuffing, cabbage slaw & mayo) and the pigs in blankets bun (with port and red onion chutney as well as gravy style mayo). Their vegan offering is the "No beef welly" ("no beef" slices, mushroom duxelle, pickled veg, mustard mayo).
We'll add more Christmas sandwiches as they're announced.
