Ultimate Cheese Toastie

Sweet dreams are made of cheese and toasted bread in this household. This is the ultimate crunchy toastie oozing with cheddar gruyere, mozzarella and parmesan. A winner in my house because its quick easy and very tasty.


  • 2 crusty slices of thick sliced sourdough bread
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 25 g grated cheddar
  • 25 g sliced gruyere
  • 25 g sliced mozzarella
  • 1 Tbs mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbs grated parmesan cheese


  1. preheat grill pan or toastie maker
  2. Spread butter on the inside and mayonnaise on the outside of the bread slices
  3. Add handful of grated cheddar and mozzarella cheese to the inside of one slice of bread
  4. Place gruyere on other slice bread then close your sandwich.
  5. Check that butter is on inside and mayonnaise is on outside before cooking because mayonnaise has a higher heat tolerance which adds crunch to make the perfect toastie
  6. Place toastie mayonnaise side down on grill pan and cook on medium heat
  7. Flip after a few minutes or when it turns a golden brown and crunchy
  8. Cook for another 2 minutes on the flip side until the cheese has melted and oozing out
  9. Sprinkle the top which is the hottest with parmesan cheese and its ready to enjoy
  10. Alternatively use tortilla instead of bread and replace mayonnaise for sliced jalapeno peppers or chili jam
  11. Don’t forget to serve up this cheesy meal with its perfect companion- an old fashioned lemonade
