Goats Cheese Toastie

Sunday, 30 September 2012

Things I will miss about summer... cheese toasties with fresh tomatoes and avocado.  I’m thinking about a winter version with cheese, onion and kale.  If you are anything like my husband you will pull a face at this suggestion.  In the mean time, fresh tomatoes while we still can...
Makes one toasted sandwich.
2 slices gluten free bread, slightly stale is best.
Hard goat cheese or cheese of your choice, sliced
Tomatoes, thinly sliced
Avocado, thinly sliced
Heat a skillet or frying pan.  Butter the bread and lay one slice, butter side down in the hot pan.  Start to compile your sandwich by adding first the cheese followed by the tomatoes.  Top with the other slice of bread, butter side up.  You could put something heavy like a pan lid on top to help the cheese melt and the sandwich stay together.  Keep on a low heat. When the bottom side is nice and toasted flip the sandwich over and cook the top side.  Once the second side is toasted and the cheese is melted remove to a plate.  Pull apart and add avocado.  Reassemble and eat.


  1. Tomato, cheese, and avocado is such a classic sandwich combo. I want one! :)

  2. I lovetoasties! And tomatoes somehow just go so brilliantly I almost find it disappointing without. There's something about biting into a toastie and having its sweet juices burst out. nom. that said, pumpkin goes quite well.. I like the sweet savoury mix with cheese, try it!

    1. Thanks Shu Han! Pumpkin...interesting, I will have to give it a try. I can see it working well with cheese and perfect for autumn too!
