The Road Goes Ever On
Cheese Toasties
Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 1/2 - 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 tsp wholegrain mustard
4 slices wheat bread, buttered
Black pepper
2 halved tomatoes (if desired)
Preheat the oven to 450 F (230 C). Whisk the eggs lightly and stir in the grated cheese, mustard, and pepper.
Lay the buttered bread facedown in a shallow baking dish and divide the cheese mixture among the slices, spreading it out evenly.
Bake in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes, or until well risen and golden brown, adding the halved tomatoes for a few minutes, if using.
Serve immediately, with the tomatoes, and garnish with sprigs of watercress and parsley.
Serves 4.
Variation: A slice of cooked ham may be added to the sliced bread before the cheese mixture, if wished.
