For the Cheese Sandwiches

  • 2 slices wholemeal bread
  • 2 slices cheese
  • Chutney optional
  • Butter or mayonnaise

To finish:

  • 1 egg
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Oil or butter for frying


Shallow dish or plate for soaking
Medium frying pan


  • Make the sandwiches in your usual way
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan on a MEDIUM-HIGH heat
  • Beat the egg in a shallow dish and season with salt and pepper
  • Cut each sandwich into quarters
  • Soak the sandwiches in the beaten egg, pushing them into the egg so that both sides are coated and all the egg is absorbed
  • Fry until the sandwiches are golden brown and the cheese is melting
  • About 3 minutes on each side
  • Serve immediately with salad


  • Use any leftover sandwiches you have - they don't have to be cheese
