I have pondered long and hard on this subject and have decided, and I may come to regret this, to enlighten you all.
I’ve noted that some have made a mockery of this subject and have therefore chosen to deal with this in a clandestine manner, those members will
receive a meeting with my elusive brethren in the early hours, lit only by an open fridge.
Now to the matter at hand.
The Poverty Purple People Meater
3 slices of “Hovis Best of Both”
2 slices of , deli acquired, corned beef
Sliced pickled beetroot
Heinz salad cream (no light or diet varieties)
Butter or a quality spreadable equivalent (Clover or I can’t believe its not butter are acceptable)
1a. Spread butter or equivalent on the first slice of bread, lay butter side up on the kitchen counter.
2a. Apply your 2 slices of corned beef.
3a. Spread butter or equivalent on the second slice of bread, only this time place it face down right on top of the aforementioned corned
Now some novices may think they have actually completed there sandwich, but hang on a minute we still have ingredients left.
1b. Spread butter or equivalent on the last layed slice of bread,

3b. Spread butter or equivalent on the final slice of bread, but prior to laying this butter side down on the layer of beetroot, apply salad
cream to taste, this may be applied as a spread across the final application of butter or equivalent, or squeezed directly on to the aforementioned
4b. Place final slice of, now buttered slice, face down on to the salad cream coated (my favoured approach) pickled beetroot.
This sandwich should not be attempted by the novice sandwich maker
