To celebrate?In A Pickle Lily?winning the Condiments & Relishes category at the 2017 UK Quality Food Awards, this is one of our favourite ways to use our crunchy, tangy piccalilli ? in a crispy golden toastie, with thick slices of ham and gooey melted Brie or mozzarella. It?s the perfect pick-me-up for grey and gloomy winter days.

The Ultimate Cheese Toastie


  • 2 slices of fresh white bread
  • A couple of thick slices of ham
  • Around 100g ripe Brie or mozzarella, according to taste
  • 3 tbsp In A Pickle Lily
  • Butter


Makes 1 toastie

  • Butter the two slices of bread, and then lay out on a board with the buttered sides facing down. On top of one slice, spread a generous layer of In A Pickle Lily.
  • On top of the second slide of bread, arrange the ham and the Brie, cut into thick slices, and then put both pieces together, so you end up with a sandwich that has the butter on the outside.
  • Place a frying pan on a high heat, and once it?s nicely warmed up, lay the prepared sandwich inside. Leave it to sizzle until the buttered underside is golden-brown, and then carefully turn it over with a fish slice, to toast the other side ? beware, this side will cook much faster.
  • Finally, cut the sandwich in half and serve up with a big mug of tea.
