This is a story of gouda, mustard, sourdough, cucumber and green apple. How would they all taste together? One answer – delicious.
All you have to do is build layer upon layer of cheese on the toast slice and then flip it upside down on the baking tray that has been greased with olive oil. We do this because when you turn the toastie around in a few minutes, unlike a toaster, the oven really gives you a nice finish.
Smear some green apple chutney and mustard to create a sticky base on the bottom before adding the cheese first.
I personally hate to see the cheese morph into an ugly, brown colour if I don’t turn it around quicker. But then, today I realised that it only turns brown when it sticks to the tray and falls off the toasties. So to avoid this faux pas, all you have to do is smear some scrumptious chutneys or sauces first with special attention to pairings – such as green apple and mustard – oh em gee.
Next, when you layer the cheese, the sticky jams and condiments will hold the bits together. Bake for 3-4 minutes with its face down, and voila! The sole reason why I decided to top it off with some chilled cucumber is that I live in a part of the world that is getting hotter by the minute, and cucumber makes me happy – even to look at.
