Asparagus Cheese Toastie

Celebrate British asparagus season with this delicious twist on a classic toastie.

Four slices of sourdough bread
Soft butter
150g sliced cheese, a mixture cooking mozzarella, cheddar and gruyere
2tsp olive oil
1 bunch asparagus, trimmed and blanched

Butter the bread on both sides.
Layer each piece of bread with the cheese slices.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and add a tsp of olive oil when hot. Put two slices of bread in the pan, butter side down and top 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.
After a couple of minutes, remove the lid and sandwich the two halves together. Press down with a spatula and cook for a further minute on each side until both sides are golden brown.
Repeat with the second sandwich. Serve with cress, pickles or chutney.
