A good mature Cheddar should make your mouth water uncontrollably. If you are making this in spring, try using wild garlic instead of a clove.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
4 slices rye sourdough or brown bread
1 garlic clove, peeled
100g mature cheddar, thinly sliced
freshly ground black pepper
chutney, to serve (optional)
gherkin, sliced, to serve (optional)

Method

  1. Butter each slice of bread on one side and place butter-side down on a clean work surface or plate. Cut the clove of garlic in half and gently rub the cut side of the garlic over the unbuttered sides of the bread.
  2. Lay the cheese over 2 slices of bread, season with pepper and top with the other slices of bread, butter-sides facing out.
  3. Heat a large heavy-based frying pan over a low–medium heat. Place the sandwiches in the pan, butter-side down, and fry for 3–5 minutes until golden on the outside and the cheese is partially melted on the inside. Flip over and fry for another 3–5 minutes to cook the other side until toasted and golden on both sides and the cheese is fully melted. Alternatively, cook the sandwiches in a toasted sandwich maker or panini press. Serve with chutney and slices of gherkins, if desired.
