asparagus and grilled cheese sandwich
May 2022
Reading time 2 Minutes
Simple, quick and still in season. Enjoy your last few spears with this mouth-watering grilled sandwich.
Preparation time
Cooking time
  • 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

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.
