Tips and alternatives

Using a fresh turkey breast is better than using processed, packed turkey which usually has water and salt added. To make the preparation time as quick as possible, roast a whole turkey breast for 50 minutes at 190c and once cooked keep in the fridge in a sealed container.

Place it in the fridge straight after cooking without letting it cool to ensure it lasts as long as possible (it’s a myth that you should let things cool before refrigeration). It should last for 2-3 days without any problems.

Also, you can try switching out the turkey for chicken or tuna which also make for an awesome bagel.
