How it's done:

  1. To make the onion butter, simply mix the softened butter and onion powder together. Spread the butter over both sides of the bread slices.
  2. Top 4 slices of bread with cranberry sauce, turkey, ham, stuffing and two slices of cheese. Place the remaining bread on top and press together.
  3. Gently heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and transfer two sandwiches to the pan, place a flat weight on top of each and cook for 3 minutes until golden. Remove the weight, flip the toasties and cook for a further 3 minutes, then remove to an oven tray and keep warm while you cook the remaining sandwiches.
  4. Preheat a grill to moderate.
  5. Sprinkle grated cheese over the toasted sandwiches and grill until melted. Sprinkle with chopped herbs and pomegranate seeds before serving.
