Dad's Recipe Tales

A WDC family favourite.

When I was courting Mrs WDC, her mother would make these for us on a Sunday evening. We would enjoy them in front of the telly. Little did I know how the ‘tradition’ would thrive and become part of our family heritage.

This is a perfect snack for those lazy Sunday evenings – when the chores are done, or having returned from a walk or drive in the Surrey Hills – the family collapses in front of the telly and just needs a light nibble.

Cheese on toast anybody?

How Dad Cooked It

It all happens under the grill. Watch it throughout the process. NB: this recipe can be made vegetarian by omitting the ham

  1. Slice the bread into the number of portions required, judging amount by appetite. Slice in half length-ways.
  2. Grill on non-cut side until brown. Turn bread over and grill lightly.
  3. Lightly butter the bread and cover with ham (optional) – grill lightly.
  4. Add cheese and grill until bubbling but not burnt. Sprinkle with oregano.
  5. Add the tomato slices – grill longer than imagined to ensure cooked and hot.
  6. Cut the portions in half. Arrange on a serving dish and garnish with chopped basil and olives.
  7. Give the platter a light dusting of paprika and finally drizzle with olive oil.
  8. Serve with napkins and tea or milky coffee.
