Part grilled cheese, part croque madame, part rarebit, this is basically a humble love letter to all I cannot eat right now. If you’re looking for the ultimate brunch, or just a way to say I love you with food, this goes down pretty well. The ingredients are pretty traditional but the mix is novel but believe me, it’s right.
Two thick slices of soft white bread
20g spicy cheddar
1 tsp Worcester sauce
salt and pepper
20g mozzarella for top
Pre-heat the grill/broiler to maximum
Butter 1 side of each bread slice. Heat a large frying pan and place each slice of bread in, butter-side down. Cover 1 slice with the first lot of mozzarella and the other with the cheddar. Allow the cheese to melt.
Pour the Worcester sauce over one slice and remove the pan from the heat.
Just a tip: when I first cracked the egg on top, I turned away and turned back moments later to discover the yolk had slipped straight off at sat sunnily beside the sandwich so before anything, grab a piece of tinfoil and make a little cradle for the sandwich.
Next put the sandwich together and crack the egg on top. Season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella on top and place under the grill for 2-3 minutes until the egg white has cooked and the topping has melted and begun to bubble and brown.
