Last Friday’s ‘Nibble’ contained a brief but apparently un-ignorable reference to cheese on toast.
As such, for the past 48 hours there has been a craving working away at my psyche and only this morning did I realise what it was.
Cheese on toast is another dish of implicit simplicity that manages to delight, satisfy and comfort in equal measure. The crunch of toasted white bread is the perfect foil to the soft, gooey warmth of melted cheddar cheese.
This is fast food as I see it – food that needs little thought or effort but can make you blissfully happy within a matter of minutes. It is the culinary equivalent of a big bear hug from a close friend.

Do you really need a recipe for this? Surely not. Toast bread. Spread thinly with butter. Add an obscenely thick layer of cheddar cheese. Sprinkle with black pepper and a few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce. Grill until the cheese is bubbling and just starting to blister into delicious brown patches.
Eat. Smile. Repeat until full.
Goes very well with a mug of tea and many episodes of Family Guy.
Part two of the pork scratching recipe is due in the next couple of days, so stay tuned.
