With all the festive fare in the stores it came as no surprise when my subconscious appetite started giving me Christmas cravings.
So brunch today - cranberry & wenslydale toasties
Plugged in my toastie machine to get it up to temp and 'click' the power cuts out - seems the toastie machine is an ex-toastie machine
HO to the rescue!
Pre-toasted bread in pop-up toaster(that still works)
Assemble toastie stack
Square of foil(to catch melted cheese)
Slice of toast(No need to butter)
Scatter crumbled wenslydale to cover as much of toast as possible
Dollop of cranberry sauce
More wenslydale on top
Put on top shelf and set HO to max
Grilled in moments - the cheese will bubble first and then start to go a nice golden brown. If you see any hints of darker brown then that's the time to stop cooking.
Use the foil to lift out the toastie and transfer to a plate, or eat without if you're brave
Bonus - not scalding my tongue on boiling cranberry sauce as I seem to do every time I used my ex-toastie machine
If you have a sweet tooth like me then for variety substitute a dollop of ginger marmalade instead of cranberry sauce.
