Ingredients

  • 2 slices of white bread
  • knob of butter
  • 25g cheddar , grated
  • small handful baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium egg
  • sriracha hot sauce, to serve
  • extra spinach or watercress, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Remove the centre of both slices of bread with the rim of a drinking glass or a cookie cutter. Spread each slice with a little butter and top both with the cheddar and torn spinach leaves – pack as much cheese and spinach on as you can. Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and drizzle in the oil.

  • STEP 2

    Once the pan is hot, sandwich the bread together. Using a fish slice, place in the pan and press down to brown. Cook for 4-5 mins on a medium heat until the cheese begins to melt.

  • STEP 3

    Flip the sandwich over and crack the egg into the hole in the middle. Cover the pan with a lid to cook the egg through for 3-4 mins. Transfer to a plate, drizzle over some sriracha and serve with spinach or watercress on the side.

RECIPE TIPS
FROZEN BREAD

Bread goes stale quickly - to avoid waste, freeze half the loaf right away. You can toast slices straight from frozen. If you've bought unsliced bread, slice it before you freeze.
