3 (45 ml) Tbsp soft butter (not margarine)
4 slices 1.5 – 2 cm sliced sourdough, one to two days old
160-200 g grated Healey’s or any other mature cheddar

Heat a thick bottomed pan to a medium heat.

Completely butter the sourdough bread on both sides, do not be shy and lay it on. Depending on the size of your pan, either place all 4 slices or just 2 in the pan and gently cook only one side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.Place cheese on one/two of slices (depending on how many you have

Place cheese on one/two of slices (depending on how many you have cooking), then close both with the other slices and continue to cook until golden brown. Turn over and cook other side until golden brown as well.

When both sides are well toasted, remove from the pan and allow to rest a little before slicing to allow for the cheese to melt further. Add a sprinkling a little Maldon salt after toasting and then tuck in.
