Sir Paul McCartney has revealed how his perfect sandwich comes together; a marmite, hummus and honey mustard bagel.
The rock legend led comedian Romesh Ranganathan through the steps to make the snack during a conversation about new cookbook Linda McCartney's Family Kitchen, with his daughter Mary McCartney revealing: 'In a McCartney sandwich we are not afraid of a condiment.'
'I do a very good sandwich,' the Beatles icon said.
Diving into the build, he explained: 'I take a bagel, I cut it in three.
'Often you have two bagels, so now you cut it into six. So you've got a top and a bottom, a top and a bottom, and two middles.
'You can get three sandwiches out of that.'
The Let It Be singer then explained the mechanics of the bagel – adding protective structural layers.
'So the bottom layer I put Marmite on and then I would put a little bit of lettuce, because I'm going to put hummus on but it's going to go through the hole if I don't put lettuce on,' he said.
'You might get a little sliced cheese on there, you might have one slice of tomato, then you might have a pickle or two.
'Then you go back to your lettuce barrier, because there's another hole on the top remember, so you've got to protect it from that.
'Then I put on honey mustard.'
The newly-minted model 's cooking up of bacon, sausage and egg, which he encased between unbuttered and untoasted white bread with a drizzle of ketchup was demonstrated on a US morning show's cooking segment and had viewers scratching their heads.
In an onstage interview for his new book The Lyrics, the performer explained: 'You know, as 16-year-old, 17-year-old Liverpool kids, you could never say that, it just wasn't done. So I never did.
'I never really just said: "John, love you man." I never got around to it.'
Linda McCartney's Family Cookbook is available now.
