  • Melt 20g butter in a small frypan over medium heat. Add eschalot and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • Add the mushroom and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes, then add the thyme and verjuice and cook for a further 1 minute or until liquid has completely reduced.
  • Stir in truffle oil and season. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Place cheddar on one slice of bread. Top with the mushroom mixture and Taleggio. Season, then sandwich with the remaining slice of bread.
  • Melt remaining 30g butter in a small frypan over medium-low heat. Carefully place the sandwich in the pan and cook without turning, for 3 minutes or until base is golden. Remove from pan.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheddar evenly in the centre of the frypan, then place the sandwich, untoasted-side down, over the cheese (this has to be done quickly to ensure the cheese will stick to the outside of the toastie and form a wonderful crust).
  • Cook for a further 3 minutes or until golden, adding more butter if necessary to prevent sticking.
  • Cut in half and sprinkle with extra thyme leaves and salt flakes to serve.
