Delicious Grilled Cheese with Tomato combination

There are many ways to eat cheese on toast, as we would call it in the UK, or grilled cheese.

Some like it with onion, just like the original cheese and onion chips taste. But this grilled cheese and tomato sandwich is a classic.

Ham and cheese, of course, is also another favourite that we make often as a toastie.

This recipe is a simple grilled cheese and tomato with mayo on toast but with a secret ingredient, marmite, added. A grilled cheese and tomato sandwich.

Marmite surprise!

The Marmite gives that extra surprise, but with Marmite, as everyone knows, you either love it or you hate it. So if you hate it you can always leave it out.

I love Marmite, and all my kids have been brought up on it. One of my kids would eat nothing else when he was a toddler except Marmite on toast –  I swear, if Marmite has not existed he would have starved!

So we use it in our house in the cooking as well, as it is good for adding some salty taste and a bite to sauces and gravies.

Marmite toast is also good for those who have not been introduced to this classic culinary ingredient :).

Please try it out (and by the way I do not represent this product, so if you do hate it, unlucky for you)!

cheddar cheese

You cannot go wrong with this healthy grilled cheese recipe – it’s a classic.

This is a real quickie – a great snack at lunch or elevenses. Easy and quick to make and very tasty.

Also, it does not use any oil or butter as it is heated under the grill.

Before you follow the recipe, if you are American, you need to understand that ‘grilling’ in the UK is what I think you call using a top broiler in the USA.

Most ovens have an electric element here with which we heat from above.

We also call a BBQ a grill so I suppose it can be a bit confusing sometimes. Anyhow this recipe is really designed to be heated from above.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 slices White (or brown) bread

Instructions

  1. Toast the bread on both sides in a toaster.
  2. Cover the bread with a layer of mayonnaise and about ½ tsp Marmite per slice. Do not go too heavy on the Marmite - it is strong stuff.

Notes

Slice toast pieces in two and serve on a plate.
