    Whatever bread, whatever cheese, whatever sauce.

    But ALWAYS

    Grate the cheese, butter bread to the edge, cheese to the edge. Then low in the grill away from the heat to let the cheese melt then up close to get the cheese to crisp.

    Bit of Dijon on the toast before it goes under the grill.

    And whilst we’re on cheese, no idea if it’d toast but Aldi Manchego is addictive stuff. Try it if you haven’t already.

    @Scuttler – try drizzling honey over your Aldi Manchego

    Sounds so wrong, yet is so, so right

    Where I live its Roasted Cheese.

    This.

    Though I preferred a pan loaf for roastit cheese Perchy.

    Warburtons toastie bread and Aldi vintage cheddar. Wooster sauce if I can remember.

    There is no wrong answer

    Cheap cheddar grated on crap plastic sliced bread all the way to pretentious cheese stirred into bechamel enriched with an egg yolk on home made sourdough

    Some variations I like:

    Cheese on crumpet

    Beans on cheese on toast (with mini sausages)

    @llama – you may want to check this out. I know I’m going to. I was unaware of its existence up until today

    Greenhalgh’s Crumpet Loaf

    I suspect this could be quite good with melted cheese 😃

    Sourdough makes the best toast and I couple it with Cheddar. That’s it.

    I found a packet of black pudding I’d forgotten about…
    Toast
    Butter
    Sliced black pudding
    Melted cheese
    Beans and chillie

    What a combo!

    A current family favourite seems to be Hovis ”seed sensations” bread with Tuna & Mayo filling then toasted under the grill. Surprisingly nice….

    My Grandma had a odd, (but nice) way of making it. Melt cheese in a pan with a bit of English mustard. A teaspoon of flour, the exact reason I can’t remember and pour over the toast. Not made it that way for years.

    Welsh Rarebit…

    Cheese on toast, UK-style. Cheddar. Worcester Sauce. No contest.

    However, some cheese of any type, bread toasted/freshly cooked of any type. Some extras of any type is always going to be a winner. That’s why pizza works, Croque Monsieur works, halloumi pittas ditto, paneer with saag in chapatis – all great.

    Grate the cheese, butter bread to the edge

    Cheese and butter 😡

    A couple of years eating them and its a heart attack you’ll be having.

    My thruppence ha’penny’s worth.

    Fresh proper bread, with crust, not that fat laden supermarket tat.

    Toast a single side, turn over and a thick layer of extra vintage on the untoasted side.
    Grill till golden brown, with slightly burned corners.

    Bread. Cheese. Radiant heat.
    End of.

    No Worcester sauce = fail (schoolboy stuff this)

    No butter and cheese combo = fail (if it doesn’t run down your chin like a Valley porn star, you’re doing it wrong)

    Bread pompousness = double fail (the cheaper and filthier, the better)

    Make a cheese sandwich with whatever filling takes your fancy, crack 2 eggs into a dish a whisk loosely with a fork, dip sandwich in egg, fry in pan until golden, serve with brown sauce. What we used to call cheesy dreams.

    Mature cheddar, Worcester sauce…


    @Binners
    , I am genuinely astonished (and disappointed) that you’re touting Wussy Sauce over Lancashire Sauce when you could probably hoy a brick out of your bedroom window and hit Entwistle’s.

    It’s a fair point, but unless you’re local then Lancashire sauce is surely an unobtainable luxury?

    Slice the cheese, put on top of the toast, microwave for about a minute, pour over the oil from a jar of anchovies and stir/stab with a fork, back in the microwave for about 30 second

    invented whilst highly refreshed?

    I’m a big fan of sub-cheesinal layers.

    In addition to my previously mentioned Marmite, other variations on the theme include, Houmous under the cheese, mayonnaise under the cheese and Marmite AND Houmous under the cheese.

    Hummus and marmite? 😳

    What kind of a deviant even thinks of something like that?

    When my ‘Crimes Against Cheese’ bill is implemented in full, you’ll be finding yourself in serious trouble for that.

    Anyway… nobody actually likes houmous, as it’s essentially just tiling grout

    Yeah the virtue-signalling as ever is all kinds of verted 🤣

    Sticking to the facts:

    Any bread that is likely to go floppy, deflated and damp during the cheese-grilling process doesn’t really work. This includes finger-thick ready-sliced breads with the words ‘toast’ on the packaging. Unless you like your toast floppy, deflated and damp. A good bread for cheese toasties gives a firm platform for the bubbling cheese and is easy to keep crisp in the cooking process. You also want a bread that has a firm texture, both for the bite and for the chew.

    – Sliced white sourdough seems to work very well. It’s rubbish for sandwiches and excellent for toast. Just as Warburtons ’Toastie’ is rubbish for toast and yet great for breakfast sarnies.

    Forget spread or butter. The fat from the melted cheese serves that purpose if cooked properly.

    – Lightly toast bread.

    – Grate the (sharp cheddar) cheese on top as thickly as you want (Yet not so thickly as to make the toast soggy when the fat in the cheese separates in the grilling process)

    – Take care to cover right up to the edges with cheese (otherwise burned-edges of toast).

    – Sprinkle all over with a few *tiny* drops of basic chilli sauce (Morrisons Habanero is perfect, otherwise Encona, tabasco, etc). A brown sauce or condiment also works, but again, use sparingly so the flavour of the toasted cheese is enhanced and not swamped.

    – Stick under preheated grill and watch carefully until cheese is bubbling and just browning.

    – Smash into face

    – Commiserate not having made more.

    – Repeat entire process 😎

    *edit Those packs of whole ryebread (ie Schneiderbrot) work well also. Only thing is that it takes three times longer to toast.

    Not at all, it’s sold nationally.

    Never seen Hendo’s on shelves in the West/SW of England, or Wales. Not once. Was given a bottle for Xmas (from where, we don’t know!) and it was a great (and unusual) gift. It’s now running very low, can’t get it online or locally and wanted to get some for Her birthday. Bah, the scent of failure on birthday-mornings 🙁

    My parents got me a big bottle for Christmas. Should see me through the year.

    I’ve never had bad cheese on toast, and am not convinced that such a thing exists. But in preference, it’s toasted sourdough (homemade, natch), grated tasty Lancashire, and Lancashire sauce.

    @Malvern Rider wot non-dairy cheese for grilling please?

    Premier Icon wobbliscott

    Warburtons Toastie is the king of any dish that involves toast. I grill on one side, put the cheese on the ungrilled side and properly melt the cheese so it has the brown ‘caramalised’ specs on top.

    Always good to have with beans.

    To jazz up put a layer of sliced pepperoni under the cheese…the thin cheap pizza variety.

    Its a cheap peasant dish and has no place being ‘poshed up’ with ‘artisan’ bread or silly specialist cheeses. Just a good supermarket mature cheddar. That’s just silly tricks cafe’s play to justify inflating the price and ripping off punters. See also posh bacon butties and silly ‘gourmet’ burgers. Some things in life are best kept being simple and straight forward.

    And I do like to drizzle with this stuff…

    No idea, sorry CG. Probably some home made mozzarella-y thing? It’s low on my list in these times, but I do really want to make some plant cheese – seems like an ultimate challenge

    Had one of these last night:

    https://www.goodfellaspizzas.com/our-range/pizzas/vegan/vegan-spicy-vegetable-salsa

    And really enjoyed it, in a regular ‘frozen supermarket pizza night’ sort of way.

    (The ‘cheese’ looked and felt like some kind of sticky semi-translucent goop…but it tasted great. ‘Adaptable’ is my superpower 😎 )

    Home made pizza for Mrs Rider gets this on it:

    It’s not bad. Sprinkle with savoury Engevita and some onion salt and/or garlic powder for extra tang

    Warburtons Toastie is the king of any dish that involves toast

    Erroneous claim. (Engages spectral superpower)

    I do (sort of) understand the need to go all inverted-snobbery /classist and ultra brand-loyal, but a (for instance) simple ‘peasant’s’ (you started it) home-made roti bread with flour, water, oil and salt tastes much better than that tasteless, collapsing doughy air that is ‘Toastie’ nonsense. I make simple bread like that for much less money than that hyper-branded air-squodge that you worship

    The fact remains that fresh ingredients/home cooking makes for better food. It’s a horribly British thing to dump all home-cooking into a stupid classist bucket labelled ‘artisan’ just because it didn’t come from a packet (or it came from the ‘wrong’ packet)

    It is more than possible to step outside of the British Class War, and judge things purely on taste and texture.

    Its a cheap peasant dish and has no place being ‘poshed up’

    In that case living a mega-thrifty life through the 70s (and now, tbh) we were eating ‘artisan’ everything because mom cooked it all from scratch and cheap-cuts (because it was cheaper to make it go round)

    We couldn’t be buying frozen shepherds pies like the poshos up the street, with their big chest-freezer and their frozen pizzas etc. My parents were convinced that the branded-bunch were looking down their noses at our home-cooking and non-branded life. My parents maybe had a point and I still see it around today (gaze intensifies)

    I remember when us kid’s favourite ‘daily loaf’ (medium sliced Mother’s Pride, made us feel as important/inclusive as our peers at school at lunchtime) was necessarily ditched by my parents during the factory-strikes and we instead had to ‘make do’ with home-baked bread. Guess what? Home-made tasted better. Better texture too. Many times better. Didn’t feel the need to eat half a loaf either. Almost as if that hyperbranded airstuff was deigned to make you more hungry the more slices you ate …

    (When the strikes were over they climbed back onto the social-ladder and we had sliced bread coming out of our yingyangs)

    But then again, I bet I’m considerubbly more peasanter than yow 😂🤣

    STW creed: An ability to argue about cheese on toast, favourite colours, bands or bicycle tyres. Or anything. 👍🏼

    It’s more about using up what’s in the fridge / bread bin, or knocking something up to go with that second glass of Italian red.
