Marmite and Cheese Toasties

Description

(makes 15-20 fingerfood sized toasties)


You will never make enough of these and I guarantee that at least half of your guests will ask for the recipe. Absolutely perfect with New Zealand pinot noir.


INGREDIENTS

1 baguette

100g unsalted butter (softened)

1 egg

150g tasty cheese (grated on coarse edge of grater}

1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 small jar of Marmite (you will not use it all)

½ tsp flaky salt


METHOD

· Slice baguette thinly on an angle. Depending on size of baguette, and angle, you will get 30-40 slices.

· Place slices onto a clean work surface and butter all bread on one side.

To make cheese filling: 

· Place egg into a small bowl and lightly whisk. Add cheese with pepper and mix together.

· Turn half of the baguette slices over and spread upwards side {unbuttered} with Marmite. Cover Marmite generously with cheese mixture.

· Turn remaining baguette slices over and spread upwards side {unbuttered} with Marmite. Place Marmite side on top of cheese mixture

· Heat a heavy-based fry pan to hot. Place some sandwiches into frypan, without crowding frypan, and toast for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown.

· Remove from pan, drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt. Serve hot. Continue to cook remainder of sandwiches.
