Truffle, Cheese + Caramelised Onion + Cabbage Toastie

A grill cheese sandwich or toastie is perhaps the world’s most loved comfort foods. Perfect for hangover mornings, afternoon bites and of course, as a whole meal, with (let’s be honest) a side bag of chips (I know none of y’all are grabbing a bowl of salad with that!).

This toastie I share has the umami wonderness of Truffle Oil speckled mustard from an Indian brand called What The Truff – they sent across this as well as the white truffle oil – both of which work gorgeously for me in so many dishes.

The highlight of course is the caramelized filling – braised purple cabbage and onions in butter, olive oil, salt and sugar – a delicious condiment that works not just in sandwiches but in salads, bake dishes, in omelette and with a rice dish.

  • Recipe Ingredients 

2 slices of sourdough bread
½ cup grated cheese medley (mozzarella, cheddar, processed and any other you like)
½ tsp minced garlic
½ tsp dried rosemary
