Method

  • First, make your roux sauce – add your butter to a medium saucepan on medium heat.
  • Once melted, stir through your flour and whisk until you have a paste.
  • Add your milk, drop by drop, continuing to whisk, so you end up with a thicker paste which is smooth.
  • Continue to whisk in the milk, leaving about 100ml for later.
  • Reduce the heat to low, continuing to whisk, then stir through your mustard & salt and pepper.
  • Add your grated cheese, then bring the heat back up to medium so it melts.
  • Once the cheese has melted into the sauce, remove the sauce from the heat and lightly toast your slices of bread, and preheat the grill.
  • If your roux sauce is too thick at this point, add a splash more milk to make it spreadable.
  • Add 1 tsp mustard to one side of your toasted bread, then top with a generous handful of grated cheese.
  • Add your top slice of bread, then cover with around 2 tbsp of your roux sauce, spreading it evenly around the top slice, but make sure it doesn’t seep over the edges.
  • Top this slice with a generous handful of melted cheese, then place under the grill for around five minutes.
  • Whilst your cheese melts under the grill, fry an egg in a pan. Traditionally, the egg is served sunny side up, but flip it if you’d like to.
  • Once the cheese has melted, add your egg to the top, season with salt and pepper & serve.
