The 3 Best Grilled Cheese / Toasty Recipes

3 best toastie recipes

Let's talk toasties....

There isn't a situation where a toastie or grilled cheese won't improve your life in some way, so without further ado let's get grillin', toastin' and munchin' on these delightful carb filled feasts. 


No. 1 Kimchi Grilled Cheese

There's a reason this beautiful beast is number one, because it is inevitably the best toastie I have ever made - yes I'm being that bold. I think I've possibly peaked with my toastie abilities. So here we have it...

kimchi grilled cheese vegan recipe


2 slices seeded sourdough 

3 tbsp kimchi (I use Biona Kimchi, Clearspring Sourkraut or Barrel & Bone Kimchi)

2 tbsp homemade pesto *recipe here*

50g Violife Pizza Cheese (this melts the best)

pinch salt 


I use a toastie grill to get the deep lines however you could do this with a skillet, a simply frying pan with a little oil, or under the grill

Add the slices of sourdough to the grill to toast on the inside first

Once toasted, load it up with the kimchi, followed by the slices of 'cheese' then layer the other slice with homemade pesto and pop on top (pinch of salt & pepper optional)

Place the loaded sandwich into a toastie grill, pan or under the oven grill to toast the outside and melt the cheese

Enjoy. Every. Mouthful.

No. 2, Pesto & Cream Cheese Toasted Sarnie
