It’s national sandwich week which of course means sharing some sandwich recipes with you! Not just a standard sandwich, however, not even just one, but three recipes! Three toasties filled with melted cheeses and flavoursome ingredients to make each one a little more special. And since they don’t contain any meat or fish, they’re all suitable for vegetarians as well. Now, one thing needs to be pointed out: if you’re looking for a very thick sort of toastie, you’d be better off pan-frying it. However, that also means that it would potentially be very messy and less practical. Making your toasties in a proper toaster means that they’re slightly easier to eat and you have less of a mess. And less of a mess means less tidying up and more time enjoying the sunshine. Convinced? Then here are the three recipes.

 

Here's what you'll need...

A little butter for each slice of bread

 

Mozzarella & Basil:

  • 8 slices of white bread
  • 200g mozzarella, sliced
  • bunch of fresh basil leaves
  • 30g pine nuts
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1-2 tomatoes (depending on size), sliced

 

Brie & Mushrooms:

  • 8 slices of white bread
  • 200g brie, sliced
  • 250g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves removed

Halloumi & Honey

  • 8 slices white bread
  • 250g halloumi, sliced
  • 50g walnuts, chopped
