  • 4 slices ciabatta loaf, (cut on an angle to make the pieces larger)

  • 100g cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 100g Gruyère, grated
  • 1 tbsp dried chilli flakes
  • splash Worcestershire sauce
  • green salad, to serve


Dried chilli flakes
Whole dried chillies should be added to dishes to infuse their heat, but not eaten. Far more user-friendly are chilli flakes or crushed dried chillies, which can be added by the pinch.


  1. Heat grill to high, put the bread onto a baking sheet, then grill until just golden on both sides. Mix the onions, tomatoes, cheese and chilli flakes in a bowl, then scoop onto the toast. Shake over a little Worcestershire sauce and grill again until golden and melted. Serve with green salad.
