WHY THESE CHEATS ?

"Not really a cheat as it is so widely used and available; using pre-grated cheese will save you a few seconds. I sometimes use Sriracha Sauce instead of the Chillies. Around 1 teaspoon is enough for me."  - MR HANS

METHOD:

Being half Dutch, I was brought up having an 'Uitsmijter' (Meat / Ham Sandwich with Fried Egg) for my tea many times. I have taken this childhood favourite and combined it with another classic, Welsh Rarebit, to create a great Veggie snack. Following the method below means that you will always have a runny Egg Yolk when you cut into the final dish. Using slices of Pre-formed Processed Cheese (or slices of Cooked Ham) will ensure the Egg Yolk remains whole and unbroken when you add the Rarebit topping prior to it going under the grill.

HOW TO PREPARE

  • Cut 2 thick slices of the Sourdough Bread (3 cm thick)

  • Separate 2 of the Eggs, placing each Egg Yolk into a separate Small Bowl and both Egg Whites into the 3rd Small Bowl

  • Crack the 3rd Egg into the Mixing Bowl, then add all the other ingredients into that bowl

  • Beat the mixture together until fully combined. (If necessary loosen the mixture with a little of the unused Egg White)

  • Using a sharp knife or small pastry cutter, create a small cavity (4cm diameter) in the centre of each slice of toast (1cm deep)

  • Cut a piece of Pre-sliced Processed Cheese (into the same size as the cavity) and place it into each cavity, pressing it down

  • Carefully place 1 Egg Yolk into each cavity on the toast (SEE IMAGE HERE) and season with Freshly Ground Black Pepper

  • Place a whole slice of Processed Cheese on top of each Egg Yolk (Meat eaters can use a slice of Cooked Ham; trim to the size of the toast)

  • Liberally spread some of the Cheese Mixture over each slice of toast making sure to cover to the edges of the toast

  • Place the 2 cheesy toasts onto an Oven proof tray

  • Grill on a high heat (but not too close to the grill element) for around 8 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and starting to brown

  • Remove from the grill and serve
