  • tsp cinnamon
  • 2tbsp caster sugar
  • 60g (2oz) unsalted butter, melted

  • Preheat oven to 140°C (gas mark 1, 120°C fan oven). Spread four slices of bread with strawberry jam and sprinkle each with the cheese and top with a layer of strawberries. Then top each with remaining four slices of bread to make four sandwiches.

  • In a shallow bowl, mix together eggs, egg yolk, milk, cinnamon and sugar. Carefully dip each sandwich, one at time, into the bowl of egg mix. Leave to soak for a moment for two and turn over and repeat.

  • Warm a frying pan over medium heat, add a little of the butter and cook until foaming but not brown. Place a sandwich in the frying pan and cook for 3-4 mins until golden brown, turning once. As each one is cooked place each of them into oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining sandwiches and butter.

  • Serve each sandwich with a dollop of crème fraiche and a strawberry.
