  • 1 slice of bread - brown or white - i prefer white
  • 1 slice of bland cheese - i go for Tesco value extra mild - really cheap!
  • a bit of butter


    1. put the bread in the toaster
    2. slice some bland cheese
    3. when bread has turned into toast (check for a hard toasted surface to the bread) thickly spread some of the butter on it
    4. whack the cheese on top and throw it under the grill for a while
    5. withdraw from under the grill when the cheese has started to melt and bubble a little and eat whilst watching the football on TV with a can of Stella

Great recipe though I did make a couple of minor adjustments. I used seeded bread because I needed to impress. Doubled the butter as could not get a thick coating with just a bit and had to go to Sainsbury’s as no Tesco here, it didn’t make a difference, opted for courgees instead of regular cheese, no not the dogs! It’s when you slice courgettes and rename them, tastes exactly like cheese trust me and so much healthier! I did burn my fingers a little when checking the toastyness of the toast but it came out perfectly. Enjoyed with a glass of wine, guests must have loved it they were speechless! Thank you.

Too bland. You need mexican cheese with chilli and pepper. Also, a few splashes of lea and perrins. Cheese on toast can be exciting! Experiment!

I think you're about as optimistic as Jamie Oliver with his 30 minute meals. 5 hours is a bafflingly short time for this. Do you prep everything first to ensure you're done in that time?

I do prefer a more mature cheese for toast, but well illustrated.

Utterly ruined by the accompaniment of Stella. Lager and cheese? You'll be wracked by indigestion my son.

A lovely twist on this is to use grated mature cheddar, finely chopped onion, a little chopped ham, some mayo and a touch of mustard to bind together. Mix together and spread on top of toast, then whack under the grill yummy yum yum.
