Actifry Cheese on Toast

by Helen

I don’t actually have a grill in my current kitchen, which means for the past 5 years i’ve not cooked cheese on toast once. Laying in bed this morning, I suddenly had the thought – cheese on toast in the Actifry will definitely work – and to my delight, it does! 

Cheese and Toast made in the Actifry is great.

Like many of my Actifry recipes, it’s super simple. The Actifry does a great job of making simple foods even easier. There is a certain level of effort associated with making cheese on toast (pre-heating the grill, watching it to make sure it doesn’t burn – making sure you don’t burn yourself on it, then cleaning it!).

This is a recipe which is safe for teens and older kids to make themselves for lunch too! 

I mix milk into the cheese mixture – it’s a tip I got from my mum years ago. It results in really bubbly cheese with the nice brown spots.

1. Grate the cheese (i’d recommend you use a block cheese and grate it yourself – pre-grated cheese (shop-bought, I mean) is coated in starch which makes it harder to melt

2. Add the grated cheese to a bowl

3. Add the milk

7. Add the cheesy toast to the Actifry (paddle out)

8. Close the lid and cook for 2 minutes – after 2 minutes, the cheese will have begun to melt – use a knife to make sure its spread evenly and any large chunks of grated cheese are pressed down

9. Close the lid and continue to cook for a further 3 minutes (or longer, depending on your model) until its cooked to your liking. I like my cheese and toast to be brown and bubbly like this – (which was 2 mins + 3 mins in my Traditional Actifry)
