  • 2 thick slices of wholemeal bread
  • 85g mature cheddar, grated
  • ½ small red onion, finley chopped
  • 2 small tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium egg
  • pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)


  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.
