‘Piece’ is a Scottish word for sandwich. The ‘Jeely Piece Song’, whose lyrics begin ‘Oh ye canna fling pieces oot a twenty storey flat’, is known by children across the country and the jam sandwich which inspired the song is a hugely popular snack among Scottish school kids. Here is a slightly more decadent version of the old classic. - Gillian

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 tablespoon good-quality raspberry jam, (or even better, homemade!)
2 slices white bread
1 large egg
pinch salt
dash double cream
a knob unsalted butter
25g granulated sugar, for sprinkling

Method

  1. Spread the jam onto one slice of bread. Place the other slice of bread on top to create a jam sandwich. Beat the egg in a small bowl with the salt and a dash of cream.
  2. Melt the butter in a small non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat. Dip both sides of the sandwich into the egg mixture until all the mixture has been soaked up by the bread.
  3. Fry the sandwich in the pan until it is golden brown on both sides. Make sure it is cooked through before removing it from pan.
  4. Sprinkle both sides of the sandwich liberally with sugar while the sandwich is still hot (this will help the sugar to stick and form a sweet crust).
