Dorset Hot Nduja & Barber's Vintage Reserve Cheddar toasties with pear and honey

Posted by David Richards on

Just one of our winter warmer recipes – the ultimate comfort food for a cold day.  Our English charcuterie can work well in a variety of hot and cold dishes whether it be for a picnic, a comforting supper, or a Boxing Day buffet.

Cheese toasties are one of life's great simple pleasures.  This one combining our Dorset Hot Nduja Salami and Barber's Vintage Reserve Cheddar takes it up a level on taste and satisfaction. The addition of the pear and honey adds wonderfully to the flavours and textures of this very special toasted sandwich.

Preparation Time:10 minutes

Cook Time:10


  • Capreolus Dorset Hot Nduja Salami (approx one inch of spreadable nduja (adjust according to your liking for heat)
  • Barber's 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar Cheese
  • 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 Dorset Hot 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.
