Serves: 2


Made using Horlicks Original.

Just add milk. The original malted recipe loved for more than 140 years.


  • 50g mature Cheddar cheese
  • 2 large slices sourdough bread
  • 1 egg
  • 4 diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 sliced spring onion
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tbsp Horlicks Original
  • 1 tsp English mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


Preheat oven to 200°C.

Butter 2 thick slices of sourdough bread and bake in the oven for 4 minutes until light brown and a little crispy.

In a separate bowl mix together the Horlicks Original, egg, cheese, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, spring onion and cherry tomatoes.

Top each slice of bread with a generous mound of cheese mix and bake in the oven for 6 minutes or until bubbling and golden.

Serve with a nice chutney of your choice and a handful of rocket.
