After a trip to the Central Markets last week, we discovered, when we arrived home, that we had purchased an embarrassing amount of cheese.
There was nothing else to be done but to eat our way through the problem. A little nibble on some cheddar here, a bite of tasty blue there and a general gnashing of teeth whenever we looked in the direction of the entire wheel of brie that was taking up the top shelf of our fridge.
One night while scrolling through some images on pinterest, I came across a photo of a brie, chocolate and strawberry toasted sandwich. It looked delicious and I knew we had to try it.
So simple, yet so tasty - I recommend you make this the very next time you have a wheel of cheese staring you down from the top shelf of your fridge (or even the next time you have a piece of cheese looking at you from the dairy compartment..)
Take four slices of good quality white bread. Butter the outside of each of them.
Slice two strawberries and arrange on two of the pieces of bread. Add four generous slices of brie and a small scattering of dark chocolate buttons.
Place sandwiches, butter side out, onto a squash toaster and cook until the outside is golden and the brie and the chocolate have melted into a wonderful goo. Devour while still warm.
