Cheese toastie

Cheese toastie

You don’t need a special gadget to make a superb cheese toastie – a simple frying pan will do. Grate the cheese and add a dollop of Greek yoghurt to give the filling a good texture and tangy taste, balancing out the acidity with a swipe of your favourite chutney.


  • 2 medium–thick slices bread, buttered on one side
  • ½–1 tbsp chutney
  • 1 slice ham (optional)
  • 1 cornichon, sliced (optional)
  • green salad, to serve

For the filling

  • 1 tbsp full-fat Greek yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped chives or ½ finely chopped spring onion
  • 25g/1oz coarsely grated cheddar (or another hard cheese, such as emmental, Gruyère, Red Leicester or a mixture)
