British Asparagus Grilled Cheese Sandwich
- 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.
