Cheap eats: Posh Cheese Toasties



Ever have a hankering for an authentic cheese toastie but don’t have one of those makers from Argos?

Ingredients for one cheese toastie:

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 3-4 slices of cheese
  • butter or margerine
  • mustard
  • 1 scallion
  • salt and pepper



Cut the cheese into fairly thin slices and wash and dice the scallion. I used 2 types of cheese which is why it’s posh, but it’s pretty tasty using just a string chedder and no scallion if you were wanting to be ghetto.

Butter one side of each of the slices of bread and then spread mustard on one. Layer on the cheese, then the scallion and then some salt and pepper. Place the next slice of bread on top butter side up


Heat a frying pan on a medium heat (no need to add oil) and then carefully place the sandwich butter side down into the frying pan. If things have gone to plan you should now be faced with an unbuttered piece of bread. Now here comes the genius part… whilst one side of the sandwhich is cooking, butter the remaining untouched surface being extremly careful not to burn your fingers. 


Compress the sanwich together with a palette knife, or something equally effective, to speed up the cooking time and flip to fry the other side after a minute or two. Keep flipping and altering the heat as necessary until the cheese has melted and then remove from the heat. Cut the the thing in half diagonally (adding yet more poshness to the recipe), sprinkle a couple of shreds of scallion on top (!!!) and enjoy.
