Pickled cucumber is a fantastic aid to a grilled cheese sandwich. They bring crunch and a burst of sour juice, which sits ever so well with creamy cheese. Try this on for size.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 slices rye bread or rye sourdough bread
2 tablespoons cream cheese
a few dill fronds, to serve
freshly ground black pepper

Pickled cucumber

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/4 cucumber, sliced

Method

  1. To make the pickled cucumber, mix together the rice vinegar and maple syrup in a small bowl. Submerge the sliced cucumber in the pickling mixture and leave for 10 minutes.
  2. Toast the rye bread in a toaster until it’s nice and crunchy.
  3. Working quickly, spread the cream cheese over your slices of toast, add the sliced cucumber and sprinkle with the dill. Crack over some black pepper and serve.

Best bread:

  • rye or rye sourdough
