  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 slices  white bread
  • 60g cheddar, grated 
  • 25g  butter
  • to serve  sriracha or other chilli sauce


  • STEP 1

    Heat the grill to medium. Season the beaten eggs generously with salt and pepper and pour into a shallow bowl. Dunk the bread slices in the egg mix one by one, pressing so the bread absorbs as much as possible.

  • STEP 2

    Sprinkle half the cheese onto two of the eggy bread slices, and put the other slices of bread on top to make a sandwich.

  • STEP 3

    Heat a frying pan and add the butter.When it begins to foam, add the sandwiches. If the pan is too small, you can add the sandwiches one by one, using half the butter each time.

  • STEP 4

    After 2 minutes or so, they should be nicely sealed and golden brown. Turn over, and do the same for the other side. Transfer to a baking tray when they’re golden on both sides.

  • STEP 5

    Sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top, then put them under the grill for 2-3 minutes to melt. Serve with sriracha chilli sauce.
