Spicy Nduja, Pear, Honey and Cheddar Cheese toasties with Berbers Cheese

A delightfully comforting cheese toastie with a zingy kick from the spicy nduja sausage, contrasting with the slices of pear and apple. A generous cheese filling which oozes when grilled makes the perfect toastie.

  • 190 g Barber's 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar Cheese grated
  • 100 g Nduja spreadable Italian sausage
  • 1 ripe pear peeled and sliced
  • Some honey
  • Sourdough bread
  • Butter


  • Lightly toast the bread to prevent a soggy toastie
  • Butter both sides of the bread
  • Spread the Nduja evenly over each slice of bread, be as generous as you like. This can be spicy so adjust to your own taste.
  • Lay slices of the pear and apple across the nduja
  • Drizzle over some honey
  • Top with a generous amount of grated cheese, enough to ensure that the cheese oozes out when cooked.
  • Top with another slice of buttered bread
  • You can use a toastie maker which will cook both sides evenly or you can do this is a frying pan.
  • When cooking in a frying pan, cook on medium heat and cook until both the nduja and the cheese melts. Use a spatula to press down on the bread as it cooks.
  • You will need to turn this over a couple of times to ensure that both slices of bread gets toasted.
  • Serve while the cheese is still oozing with a cool glass of cider.


You can buy nduja from Waitrose or any specialist deli. For this recipe, we used a locally made nduja from Capreolus of Dorset.
I like to use grated cheese instead of slices as you get a better melt.
