  1. Toast the bread. Preheat the grill and toast the bread on both sides. Set the toast aside, but keep the grill on.

  2. Make the mix. In a bowl combine the cheese, onion, tomatoes, egg and cayenne, if using. Give it all a good stir and season well with salt and pepper. Divide the cheesy mix between the two slices of toast and spread it out so it completely covers the toast.

  3. Get grilling. Slide the toast back under the grill and cook until golden brown and bubbling. Eat while it’s hot.

simple and tasty- made with a friend for lunch. was worried about the egg but it turnt out like an omlette. tip:keep on a low heat, otherwise the middle will be cold and the top near to burning.

courtneyk, no the heat of the grill would cook the egg, so it would be like omlette on toast really. anyway was really nice though. not sure you need a recipe for this one though?!

Tasty snack and easy to make. If I make it again, I will try grilling for longer under a lower heat, because even though the top was bubbling and golden, the middle was still cold :(
