Autumn cheese on toast to help you see in the dark…

You know why I love cheese on toast?

Because that’s precisely it: It’s cheese and toast, two of the worlds best inventions.

Simple pleasures eh?

There’s nothing that really comforts you like the gooey hug of melted cheese, oozing down the side of a thick slice of toasted bread and there are so many ways to jazz it up!

The nights are beginning to get colder now. Autumn is presenting us with crisp evenings and the further in to October we get, the darker the evenings become-but I have the perfect thing for you.

Caramelised carrots and Lancashire cheese on toast

Because like my Mum always used to say, carrots make you see in the dark…

You will need (for 1 person):

2 carrots

3 tablespoons of brown sugar

Lancashire cheese (crumbly)

2 slices of thick, crusty bread-from a un-cut loaf (something like ciabatta or tiger bread)

Half a teaspoon of butter

Method:

Turn the grill on to about 190 degrees.

Place the sugar in a pan on low heat.

Peel the carrots and shave with the peeler so you get lovely long strips of carrots.

Place in the pan with the sugar.

Allow to caramelise-occasionally stirring and adding in the butter half way through-until all the sugar has dissolved in to a beautifully sweet juice.

Toast your bread.

Place a few carrots on each toast and crumble a few good chunks of cheese on top.

Grill until the cheese has turned slightly golden and remove from the heat.

Finish with some cracked coarse black pepper and a little juice from the pan with the sugar.

Now, I strongly advise that in order to eat such a delicious snack, you must find the fluffiest, woolliest jumper possible, some rather large socks and a good glass of red before cosying up on the sofa to indulge in a  very Autumnal treat 🙂
