    TOP TIPS FOR THE PERFECT TOASTIE

    *Spread salted butter or rub a garlic clove on the outside of your sandwich for a golden crust and added flavour.

    * Pickled vegetables are a great toastie accompaniment as they can help cut through rich cheese.

    * Ideally, use one-day-old bread – it’s not too soft and crisps up well.

    *Take the cheese out of the fridge an hour or so before making your sandwich.
