British Asparagus Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Asparagus Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Sometimes all you need is a good old sandwich and that's why we love this British Asparagus recipe so much.

  • Feeds: 2
  • Time: 20 mins


  • 4 slices of sourdough bread
  • Some butter
  • 150g cheese (sliced)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 bunch of asparagus


  1. Butter the bread on both sides. Layer each piece of bread with the cheese slices.
  2. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tsp of olive oil when hot. Put two slices of bread in the pan, cheese side up and top one slice with a handful of blanched asparagus spears. Put a lid on the pan to allow the cheese to melt and the asparagus to heat through.
  3. After a couple of minutes, remove the lid and sandwich the two halves together. Press down firmly with a spatula.
  4. Repeat with the second sandwich then serve with cress, pickles or chutney.
