  • 4 breadWhite or multigrain slices
  • 2tbsps Salted Butter
  • 2tablespoons parsleyFinely chopped
  • 2tablespoons chivesFinely chopped
  • 2tablespoons spring onionFinely chopped greens
  • 2 Cheese(ideally, Irish Cheddar cheese slices) slices
  • 2 Pickled gherkins
  • 1 – 2tsps Butter
  • 1tsp Plain CheeseSpread
  1. Lay out the slices of bread on a chopping board.
  2. In a small bowl, mix in the finely chopped parsley, chives and spring onion greens. Remove 2 tsp of this herb mix and keep aside. Mix the leftover herbs in the bowl with the butter.
  3. Spread this butter uniformly on all slices.
  4. Place a cheese slice on two of the slices.
  5. Top with sliced pickled gherkins. Cover with the other buttered slice.
  6. Heat a skillet / tava. Lightly butter one side of the sandwich and place it on the hot tava buttered side down. On a medium heat, let this side turn crisp and golden brown. Meanwhile, apply a little butter on the top side of the sandwich and turn it over so this side also gets golden brown.
  7. Cut into two triangles. Apply a little cheese spread over the cut side and dip it into the finely chopped fresh herbs kept aside, so the edge gets a lovely green coat of herbs. Serve hot with some pickles on the side or tomato ketchup.
Recipe Notes

This combination of herbs, the saltiness from the butter and the crunch from toasting the sandwich on the skillet AND the ‘icing’ on the sandwich being the herb coating on the sides, just makes this an irresistible sandwich and a stunning one at that. Surprise your kid with this beauty in his/her lunch box or as a part of your tea-party menu for friends. They’ll remember this one for a long time to come!
