When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats this cheese-laden toastie


Makes 1 toastie

Ingredients 
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 1 red onion, finely sliced
• 1 white onion, finely sliced
• 1 tbsp harissa (I like rose harissa) 1 tbsp mayo
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 2 slices of sourdough
• 4 slices Leerdammer
• Knob of butter – 5g
• Tbsp rapeseed oil

Method
1 Heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add both the onions, season well, and cook down for 20-30 mins, until sweet, soft and caramelised. Stir through the harissa paste.
2 Mix the garlic into the mayo and spread both sides of each slice of bread with the mayo. Top one half with half the onions, followed by 3 slices of the cheese.
3 Top with more onions, and another slice of cheese, then top with the other half of bread.
4 Heat a skillet over a medium-to high heat and melt a knob of butter and tbsp rapeseed oil.
5 Carefully place the sandwich into the skillet and cook for 3-5 minutes, turning halfway through, until the bread is golden and crisp and the cheese is melting.
