Very simply the sandwich is marinated tomatoes (olive oil, chilli & garlic) with fresh basil leaves and a white cheese (port salut, gruyere, fontina) all toasted on a pan on very thick fresh wholemeal bread.

50ml extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves of garlic
1 red chilli
1 tsp sea salt
Black Pepper
3 Tomatoes
4 large thick slices wholemeal bread
75g Cheese (port salut, fontina, gruyere)
16 basil leaves
25g butter


Cooking Utensils
Chopping board
Sharp Knife
Swallow bowl for tomatoes
Frying pan
Coating brush

- Chop the Tomatoes up into thin even slices
- Finely chop your garlic and chilli
- Finely Slice your cheese


- In a shallow bowl add your olive oil, garlic, chilli and salt & pepper and mix well. Add your sliced tomatoes and marinate for 2 hours.
- Brush one side of the bread with some of the olive oil from the tomatoes

- Next place the cheese onto the oiled slices and then place your basil leaves
- Finally top with your tomatoes and a second slice of bread, oil side down.

- Melt half your butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and place down your 2 sandwiches. Cover with a plate and a weight on top and cook until sandwiches are golden brown on each side (remember to melt the butter again for the second side)

  1. I do realise that there is no Dutch cheese in my Broodje Kaas but you can of course put that in if you so wish!
