Favourite Cheese Sandwich

This is no ordinary cheese sandwich. Its grilled cheese, and the cheese should be very strong cheddar (try Montgomery cheddar)topped with slowly cooked onions, some chopped gherkins and a little salad if you're so inclined. Amazing.


Cook the onions, drizzled in a little oil very slowly for about 15mins until they're completely soft. Meanwhile toast the bread under the grill on one side, turn them over and toast the other side lightly, then top one slice with the cheese and the other with a couple of slices of tomato, a drizzle of olive oil and some pepper. Grill until the cheese in molten and bubbling. Top with the salad leaves, onions and chopped gherkins. Enjoy.
