Luxury Cheese Toastie

Luxury Cheese Toastie with Basil and Annabel's Deliciously British Strawberry Chilli Jam

The classic cheese toastie is a brunch-time staple, but we decided to take it up a notch with a few luxurious additions. Quality cheese, crusty sourdough bread and our delicious Strawberry Chilli Chutney combine to make an indulgent cheese toastie.


  • 50g mature cheddar (grated) 
  • 2 thick slices of artisan bread (we love sourdough)
  • 2 tbsp Annabel’s Strawberry Chilli Chutney
  • Handful fresh basil 
  • Salted British butter


  • Butter both slices of bread then turn over and generously spread the  chutney onto the other side.
  • Top with grated cheddar cheese and sandwich together with a few leaves of fresh basil.
  • Melt a knob of butter in a frying pan over a medium heat, then add the toastie and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and oozing with cheese.
  • Serve with an additional portion of Annabel’s Strawberry Chilli Chutney on the side for dunking!

Some other delicious combinations we love:

  • Brie, bacon & strawberry chilli chutney, fried in thyme butter
  • Gruyere, prosciutto & strawberry chilli chutney, fried in rosemary butter
