Why? Well two reasons really:
- Sliced bread is common in the UK and Ireland. It isn’t in France, Italy or Spain
- Most cookers in France, Italy and Spain don’t have grills like Irish cookers do
Of course I currently live in Ireland, so I’ve no excuse. Pretty much every single cooker sold in this country comes with a grill.
So every now and again I will make cheese on toast.
However cheese on toast by itself is a little pedestrian.
To make it a little bit more interesting I like to slice up an onion and a tomato so that you get cheese and onion with tomatoes.
Preparation is simple – simply grill the bread on one side. When it’s done add your cheese, onion and tomato.
Grill until the cheese has melted. The tomatoes and onion won’t be fully cooked, but if you’ve cut the onion thinly enough it won’t matter.
You can serve it “as is” or add a bit of chutney.
Cheese on Toast With Onion & Tomatoes
- 1 - 2 slices Sliced bread suitable for toasting
- 50 g Cheese any will do, but cheddar is probably best
- 1 - 2 Tomatoes one or two depending on how many slices of bread you're using
- 1/2 Onion
Toast the bread on one side under your grill
While the bread is toasting, peel and slice the onion. Slice the tomato.
Once the bread is toasted on one side remove from the grill turn it over and add the cheese, onion and tomato slices
Grill until the cheese has melted
Serve hot with some chutney
