Neff Toasties

Neff, one of our kitchen appliance suppliers, enjoy sharing cooking tips and recipes with clients and suppliers alike.

A few years ago when looking for a tasty nibble to serve with drinks at our Winchester Kitchen showroom birthday party, I tried the recipe below. So much more than a humble toastie, they went down a storm and are now a favourite at our house. This recipe has certainly done the rounds. There’s a vegetarian option too! Simple to make, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
