Grilled Marmite Cheese Sandwich

Yippee! A care package arrived for me this week from my dear, dear friend in Merry Ole England. She sends me goodies several times a year and I wait with great anticipation each time for it to arrive. Some of the goodies in this package were thick cut marmalade (my favorite), Yorkshire Gold tea, and Marmite. This friend really knows what I like. She’s a gem!

Marmite is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive flavor made from yeast extract. As a child, I used to spread butter followed by a thin layer of Marmite on bread. It is really tasty. It can also be made into a drink by diluting with hot water or as a flavoring in cooked food.


My friend’s daughter loves her sandwiches spread with Marmite and topped with grated cheddar and thinly sliced cucumber. That sounded really good. I used two slices of home-made potato bread, spread butter on it, followed by Marmite and then topped with grated sharp cheddar.

As I needed something warm this morning, I omitted the cucumber but grilled the sandwich instead. This Grilled Marmite Cheese Sandwich was really good…..mmm…mmm…mmm! How about some Yorkshire Gold tea? Milk or sugar, anyone?
