Spicy Toasted Sandwiches for Lunch!
Mexican Cheese, Chorizo and Avocado Toastie Recipe
Today’s recipe is just perfect for a light lunch, a quick snack or a simple supper, and it’s one of my favourite ways to eat a sandwich, a TOASTED sandwich, or a toastie as they are called. I have simple tastes when it comes to toasties, my favourite is just cheese and onion, NO ham, tomatoes or pickle, JUST plain old cheese and onion – it’s my favourite toastie and I often have one with a bowl of soup for a comforting lunch. I am also a bit is a cheese snob, I usually only use a VERY mature Farmhouse Cheddar for my grilled cheese treat – however, when Leerdammer contacted me just before Christmas and asked if I would like to take part in their Toastie Challenge, I said yes, as I LOVE sliced Leerdammer cheese and often have it with a boiled egg for breakfast or as part of my calorie controlled 5:2 diet. ( I use Leerdammer light then)
I was sent a lovely hamper of ingredients, including some packs of Leerdammer cheese, as well as a Breville Toastie/Sandwich Maker, which was very handy; the brief was to create a NEW toastie recipe, and based on my beloved cheese and onion toastie, I came up with a spicy Mexican inspired recipe……a tasty, spicy creation with cheese, chorizo, red onion and lemon spiked avocado……and I can report that it was delectable, especially when served with a cheeky little salsa and salad on the side.
I hope you will enjoy my creation for a spicy cheesy toasted sandwich, and if you are a vegetarian, just omit the chorizo sausage and add some bottled, charred peppers, drained of course, it’s just as delicious served that way too. I used thickly sliced wholemeal bread when I photographed the toastie, but next time I make this, I am going to use some sliced sourdough bread for a more robust and chunky grilled sandwich. That’s it for today, have a great day and I’ll be back soon with more new recipes, a new giveaway and some special New Year product and ingredient reviews. See you soon, Karen
