Toasted sweet cherry and Swiss cheese sandwich

A toasted sweet cherry and Swiss cheese sandwich you say? Well I don't mind if I do. Putting sweet fruit with salty cheese is a wonderful combination and one that has to be tried.

  • 200 g frozen sweet cherries
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp honey optional
  • 2 slices of chia seed bread
  • Butter for spreading
  • 2 slices of Swiss cheese


  1. Put the frozen cherries in a small pan with the water and honey (if using) and cook covered over a low heat until defrosted. Stir occasionally. Take the lid off, turn the heat up a little and cook for a further five minutes, stirring often to avoid sticking, until some of the excess water has cooked away and the cherries are starting to break down. Remove from the heat.
  2. Put a non-stick griddle pan or toastie maker on to heat up. Butter one slice of bread. Turn it over and spread the cherries on the unbuttered side. Put the two slices of cheese on top. Cover with the other slice of bread and butter the outside.
  3. Cook on the griddle pan for 2-3 minutes then carefully turn over and cook the other side.
