Ultimate Cheese Toastie

  • Prep Time: 5mins
  • Cook Time: 6mins
  • Serves: 2ppl


  • 4 slices bread of choice
  • 1 Tbsp salted butter
  • 4 slices Charleville Select White Cheddar cheese Block
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Little freshly ground black pepper


  • Begin with buttering one side of each slice of bread. Use a good quality bread as this will hold together better when cooking and creates a stronger case for the melted cheese. 
  • Divide the cheese between two slices of bread, placing it on the unbuttered side.
  • Season with a little salt and pepper. 
  • Cover with the second slice of bread, unbuttered side down. 
  • Heat your griddle or frying pan to hot, but not smoking. Using a flat spatula or fish slice, lay the two sandwiches into the hot pan (they should sizzle a little as they hit the pan, if not, the pan is not hot enough). Gently press the sandwich with the spatula, do not worry if the cheese leaks a little. Cook for a few minutes on one side pressing from time to time, then flip it over and repeat on the other side.  
  • Remove from the pan once the cheese is starting to melt and the bread turning a golden brown. 
  • Cut diagonally into two and serve immediately piping hot.
