Cheese and Chutney Toasties Ingredients

  • 2 slices of white bread – I love my toasties made with white bread – but feel free to use whatever bread you like.
  • 15g butter
  • 2 tsp onion chutney
  • 20g Cheddar cheese – grated, again – I love Cheddar cheese on toasties but you can just switch in your favourite cheese in it’s place.

How do you make a cheese and chutney toastie in the toaster?

So – to make a toastie in the toaster you have to use one that has a toaster sandwich cage accessory.

I use a Dualit with sandwich cage.

  • So for a delicious lunch in minutes, simply butter your bread – place the buttery side out when using the toastie maker or sandwich cage.
  • Then spread the none-buttery side with chutney. I like a nice caramelised onion chutney, then add the grated mature cheddar cheese. Fold the cage together carefully to squeeze the sandwich together ready for toasting.
  • Place the sandwich cage into the toaster and cook for around 3 minutes.

Make cheese and chutney toasties your way

  • Want this to be a quick dinner or supper then add a bowl of tomato soup. Tomato soup goes so perfectly with toasted cheese sandwiches.
  • Want a bit more? Add in some ham and top with a poached egg, maybe a side of rocket and spinach salad or a delicious homemade coleslaw.

  • Don’t like chutney? Skip it, maybe add some BBQ sauce instead.
  • I like these for breakfast… made with cheese and brown sauce and always with a cup of really strong tea.
