British asparagus grilled cheese sandwich

Asparagus Grilled Cheese Sandwich 9

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

 

You’ll need:

 

Four slices of sourdough bread

Soft butter

150g sliced cheese, a mixture of cooking mozzarella, Cheddar and Gruyère

2tsp olive oil

1 bunch asparagus washed, trimmed and blanched

 

What to do:

 

Butter the bread on both sides. Layer each piece of bread with the cheese slices.

 

Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add a teaspoon of olive oil in when hot. Put two slices of bread in the pan, butter side down and top with a handful of blanched asparagus spears. Put a lid on the pan to allow the cheese to melt and the asparagus to heat through.

 

After a couple of minutes, remove the lid and sandwich the two halves together.  Press down with a spatula and cook for a further minute on each side until both sides are golden brown.

 

Repeat with the second sandwich.

 

Serve with cress, pickles or chutney.
