Is there anything better the perfect Cheese toastie? Personally I never buy a toastie when I am out and about as they just don't compare to what I can do at home.
You can use the cheeses you like, I find a soft or spreadable cheese a long with a tasty or mozzarella work well, if you like a stronger tasting cheese by all means use it.
I find that the secret is in the amount of butter you use, if you use to much you will have a soggy outside if you don't have enough you won't have that nice brown crunch on the outside.
Butter enough to spread to pieces of bread.
50 grams of Good quality Tasty cheese.
1 teaspoon of Bulla Crème Fraiche
2 good pinch's of pepper
1 pinch of salt
Preheat a non stick frying pan on high.
Spread 2 pieces of white bread, you can use whatever bread you like. Make sure the butter is spread out evenly, not to thick and to the corners.
Turn bread over and spread the crème Fraiche on one piece.
Place one piece of buttered bread down on the hot pan then ad the slices of tasty cheese on it.
Add the salt and pepper.
Top with the other piece of bread making sure that the butter side is facing up.
Cook for 3- 4 minutes each side until you can see golden brown in colour and the cheese melting.
Take out and slice in half.
Add a slice of ham or any other filling to change it up.
