Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 handfuls strawberries
1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 slices white bloomer
100g cream cheese

Method

  1. Slice the strawberries in half, or if they are really large, into quarters. Pop them in a bowl and sprinkle with the sugar. Leave for 15 minutes to allow the strawberries to macerate.
  2. Mix the butter with the black pepper in a small bowl and spread over one side of each slice of bread. Turn the two slices over and cover the unbuttered sides with the cream cheese. Top with the macerated strawberries and drizzle any juice at the bottom of the bowl over them.
  3. Warm a large frying pan over a medium heat and place the sandwiches into the pan. Cook for 3 minutes and use a spatula to press down on the sandwiches to encourage a golden crust. Flip them over and cook for a further 2–3 minutes until both sides are crisp and golden. You can also cook them in a toasted sandwich maker or a panini press if you have one. Slice in half and serve.
