Quick to make and bursting with flavour, this culinary creation is sure to become a favourite for breakfast or lunch. Its Flavour, fresh avocado and salty tang work so well with spicy kimchi.

What do I need?

  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed
  • 300 g cheddar cheese, coarsely grated
  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • 6 tbsp kimchi
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

How do I make it?

  1. Preheat a griddle pan and a small heavy-based pan (to use as a weight) on two separate hobs over medium-low heat. Meanwhile, mash the ripe avocado in a bowl until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Pack the grated cheddar onto two large slices of sourdough. Distribute the kimchi evenly over the surface, then spread the avocado mash on top of the kimchi layer. Press the remaining slices of sourdough on top. Brush with 1/2 of the oil, flip, and place both sandwiches on the hot griddle oil-side down (you will need to do this one by one). Brush the tops with the remaining 1 tbsp oil, cover each sandwich with a piece of baking paper, and put the hot pan on top. Keep an eye on them and adjust the heat so that the bread doesn’t burn.
  3. After 3-5 minutes, when the bread is nicely browned, flip the toasties, put the baking paper and weight on top again, and cook for a further 3-5 minutes until browned and the cheese has melted. Flip a third time if necessary. Halve and enjoy immediately, while the cheese is gooey.
