Before you start

Small saucepan with a lid on a medium heat | Frying pan | Line a tray with kitchen paper | Sandwich iron or heavy pan that will fit inside the frying pan

Start with the caramelised onions

  • Peel and thinly slice the onions
  • Drizzle some olive oil in the small saucepan over a medium heat
  • Once warm, dd the sliced onions to the pan along with the balsamic vinegar, Henderson’s Relish, sugar and salt
  • Stir, reduce the heat to the lowest setting and put the lid on the pan
  • Cook until soft and gooey

Meanwhile, make the smoked cheese mix

  • Place the plant-based butter in a small saucepan over a low heat
  • Once melted, add the cream cheese, grated plant-based cheese, mustard, plant-based milk, Henderson’s Relish and a pinch of salt
  • Mix well until everything comes together and cook on a low heat until the cheese sauce becomes stingy and cheesy

Make the butter

  • In a small bowl, mix together the butter and Henderson’s relish until it comes together

Finish the sandwich

  • Put a frying pan over a medium heat and add the Henderson’s butter, ensuring it coats the base of the pan evenly
  • Lay 2 slices of bread in the pan
  • Spoon the caramelised onions on top of one slice of bread before topping with the cheese sauce
  • Lay the remaining bread slices on top
  • Use your biggest, heaviest pan or a sandwich iron to compress the sandwiches
  • Fry for 3–4 minutes, then remove the weight, very carefully flip the sandwiches over and replace the weight on top
  • Fry for another 3–4 minutes
  • Remove the sandwiches to a wooden board, cut in half and serve
