Russet Squire Grilled Cheese with Curds and Croust | Recipe

March 7, 2018

The new Russet Squire from Curds and Croust is a glorious soft cheese that has been bathed in cider. It’s full bodied and absolutely wonderful served on a cheese tray.

Given the recent cold snap we decided that for breakfast, before heading out in the snow a warm cheesy meal was needed. I’d read the Russet Squire from Curds and Croust is also good served warm (baked like camembert) so thought this recipe would be perfect. Also sometimes the best way to enjoy cheese is the simplest way, melty and gooey and between two slices of bread.

Gooey, melty, delicious-ness.
Cook Time 15 minutes

  • 4 slices of bread we used a thick sliced bread, I would suggest you do the same
  • Olive spread
  • Curds and Croust Russet Squire Cheese sliced generously
  • Smoked bacon cooked
  • Chilli chutney or chilli jam


  1. Cover one side of each of the slices of bread with olive spread, generously and right to the edges.
  2. Heat a pan on a medium heat. When the pan is ready, put two slices of bread in butter slice down.
  3. Pack this side with cheese and the bacon. The trick is to leave until very gooey and the bread golden. Cheese leakage may occur but it’s a small price to pay!
  4. I then added my Chilli Chutney to the other side of the other buttered bread slices.
  5. Put these second slices of bread on top of the ones in the pan, butter side up, chilli chutney touching the bacon.
  6. Flip the toasties gently; a two-spatula approach is needed, then allow to cook for a few minutes.
  7. It took a grand total of about 10 minutes to cook. Just keep an eye on it, but also be patient, try not to cook on too high a heat.
  8. Then slice on serving and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

If you don't like chilli, onion chutney would work too. This full bodied cheese needs something sweet to cut through it.

    This is taking grilled cheese to the next level, and I’m living for it. I’m definitely a fan of all things cheesy, so I’ll be saving this recipe for later.
