Take your grilled cheese to the next level with a sharp, aged cheddar beautifully balanced by tangy pickled onions and spicy arugula. It’s quick, simple and completely delicious.
2 tbsps of butter, softened
2 slices of bread, your choice
1/2 cup of grated Ilchester Cheddar with Malt Whisky
1/4 cup of McEwan’s Own Pickled Onions
A handful of fresh arugula
Butter one side of each slice of bread and lay one slice butter side down.
Top the bread with half of the grated cheddar, McEwan’s Own Pickled Onions and arugula.
Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese and top with the second slice of bread, butter side up.
Heat a pan over medium heat and place your sandwich gently into the pan.
Grill the sandwich until the bottom is just starting to turn golden and the cheese has begun to melt, about a minute or two depending on how hot your stove is.
Carefully flip the sandwich and give it a good press with a spatula. Ensure maximum contact with the pan.
Grill until golden brown on that side (another minute or two) and then flip again. Press the sandwich down with your spatula and grill again for 30 seconds to a minute until the other side is crispy.
