Cheese and pickle sandwich
The reason that cheese and pickle or pickled onions work so well together is that the crunch of the pickle perfectly compliments the smooth softness of the cheese, and the vinegariness of the pickle balances the richness of the cheese. It’s definitely a combo that will never get tired.
Ham cheese and watercress sandwich
For me, this is a killer combo of ingredients that always work really well together in a sandwich. Make sure you get hold of the best quality ham you can afford to ensure you’re getting maximum flavour.
Ham, mustard and Red Leicester cheese toastie
As toasties go, this is one of the finest. It makes the perfect snack and is also a quick and easy lunch if served with a nice green side salad.
Smoked mackerel pâté sandwich
This is such a lovely thing to eat. There’s loads of goodness in the skin of the mackerel, so try to leave it on when you make this – you won’t really notice it once the fish is all chopped up. However, if you don’t fancy eating the skin you can remove it.
Cheddar, Stilton and red onion chutney toastie
Cheeses like Cheddar and Stilton really need something with them to balance out their richness and flavour. Red onion chutney is sweet enough to do just that
Once you’ve had a home-made sausage roll, you’ll never want to eat a shop-bought one again.
Tomato, mozzarella and pesto toastie
Creamy mozzarella and lovely ripe tomatoes are great friends and always work brilliantly with a bit of beautiful basil thrown in. Try making your own pesto to make this one of the best toasties ever!
Triple decker sandwich
A triple decker sandwich may sound a bit excessive, but it doesn’t have to be bad for you. What’s great about it is that you get double the opportunity to combine interesting flavours that all work well together.
