Split and toast the bun and fry the leftover meats. Spread the base of the bun with mustard mayo and dip the top in the turkey gravy. Layer up the turkey, sausage, bacon and cheese and flash under the grill, place the warm sprout tops on the mustard side of the bun followed by the meat stack. Drizzle with cranberry ketchup and finish with the French dipped bun top.
