Pret’s Holiday Toastie Will Help You Relive Turkey Day
After reading Lunch’r joer’s recommendation of the steel cut oatmeal at Pret, I headed over to check it out this week. I tend to go for my breakfast late-ish in the morning, so I was disappointed to discover that they finish serving their oatmeal at 10:30, but while I was there the limited edition Pret Holiday Toastie ($6.69 + tax) caught my eye.
Filled with turkey, vegetarian stuffing, cranberry sauce, “Pret seasoning,” and brie cheese the holiday toastie makes for an interesting combo. The cranberry sauce is the star. It’s whole berry and really nicely spiced. I haven’t been wowed by Pret’s Toasties in the past, but this is clearly a superior toastie. With the turkey + cheese + stuffing, it seemed a little more filling than some of Pret’s other sandwiches, though if you have a bigger appetite you’ll still probably have to augment your lunch to stay full through the afternoon.
Oh, and another word of warning: don’t delay in eating it. It comes right out of the toaster and then they stick it in a bag, which can result in a steamed toastie. But if you’re already missing your Turkey Day leftovers, this sandwich might be just the thing to put you back in the holiday spirit.
