The Leerdammer Toastie Challenge

Leerdammer cheese slices are one of my little guilty secrets; neither Mr. B. nor the girls get particularly excited about cheese and I will, quite often, indulge in an entire packet of Leerdammer cheese slices myself of a weekend!  Leerdammer have a new addition to their range - Leerdammer Toastie.  These new cheese slices are billed as the ultimate cheese-toastie-making slice so I put them to the test with a few innovative toastie recipes.  I shall admit a small amount of guilt for having not introduced my daughters to the joys of a toasted sandwich before now - I think I've put that right now though!

Leerrdammer toastie slices are designed to fit perfectly into a standard loaf with no overlap so that there is less leakage!  The slices are thicker than normal to try and make a really nice thick and creamy texture inside your toastie.  I started off with these cheese, parma ham, fig and honey toasties inspired by a pizza I once ate in Paris!

I spread a thin layer of honey on the bread before layering on the cheese, strips of parma ham and quarters of small fresh figs.  I was really surprised that both Lara and Holly enjoyed their first taste of figs in these toasties and I thought that they were a delightful mix of sweet and savoury.

Next up is Mr. B's favourite of my toastie experiments - cheese, chorizo and Jalepeño peppers.

These mexican-inspired cheese toasties are so moreish and a my perfect pick-me-up on a cold day as the fun spiciness helps warm you all the way through.  A layer of Leerdammer Toastie cheese is sprinkled with thin slices of spicy chorizo pork sausage and pickled spicy Jalepeño peppers which have been drained of their liquid - I think these toasted sandwhiches work best with TWO slices of Leerdammer to really bind the ingredients together.

Leerdammer Toastie is available from most supermarkets for about £1.75 for a pack of 6 slices.  I was sent a couple of packets and a sandwich toaster to help me create my inventions!
