The absolute BEST cheese on toast recipe – delicious toast topped with melted cheese and a lovely dollop of caramelised onions. Just perfect!

We know, we know, cheese on toast is pretty perfect just as it is, but… with a little topping of sweet buttery caramelised onions it just goes up a level!

And if you’re short on time and need a quick and easy weeknight supper (or just a sneaky little snack) then cheese on toast is for you. Enjoy it!

Cheese on toast ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread – any you like sourdough, tiger, herby bloomer, just choose your favourite.
  • 150g cheese or enough slices of cheese to cover the bread fully.
  • 1 onion – thinly sliced
  • 25g butter
  • 2 tsp brown sugar

How to make cheese on toast

  • Make the caramelised onions – melt the butter in a small frying pan and gently fry the onions over a low heat. After around 15 minutes add the brown sugar and continue to fry for another 10 minutes until they’re soft and sticky.
  • Toast one side of the bread – do this under a hot grill.
  • Load the cheese on – flip the bread over and put the cheese onto the un-toasted side. Then pop back under the grill until the cheese in bubbling and melted.
  • Serve – slide the cheese on toast onto a plate and top with the sticky caramelised onions.

Make cheese on toast your way

This is your cheese on toast add on the ingredients that make you happy!

  • Add bacon – adding in a couple of slices of crispy bacon works really well here – I like to snip it into strips and sprinkle it over.
  • Add mustard – spread a layer of wholegrain mustard onto the bread before the cheese.
  • Add a salad – serve with a simple green salad dressed with lemon juice.
