I’m a sucker for a hot sandwich and the most important basic to get right is cheese on toast. Cheese on toast is perfect by itself with a bit of branston or chutney but you can pour this delicious cheesy mixture over tuna or ham or veggies for a quick and tasty meal. If I have a few slices of bread that are going stale I use them to make this easy lunch.
Makes 4 Slices
4 slices of any bread
120g cheddar or red Leicester
optional: 4 tsps Worcestershire sauce
- Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. *Keep the egg whites for a flourless chocolate brownie recipe coming soon! Grate the cheese into the bowl with the egg yolks then pour over the milk and the Worcestershire sauce (if you’re using it, don’t worry if you don’t have it). Give everything a mix using a fork.
- Toast the 4 slices of bread on a low setting in a toaster then place them on a grill tray. Use a spoon to divide the cheese between the four slices then pour the liquid over the top of each slice. Preheat the grill to 175°c then grill the cheese for 2 and a half minutes. Keep an eye on it. The top will melt and caramelize to gooey perfection!
- If you want a more substantial meal you can put some ham, or tuna or vegetables on the toast before you pour over the cheese mixture.
