Mince Pie Cheese Toastie
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!
We know this recipe sounds really weird, but hear us out!
Lots of people that enjoy eating cheese with mince pies, which might seem odd, but in reality the mince pie filling is similar to the sweet flavour of a chutney. Fruit and cheese are also often combined, so it’s not as strange as it sounds.
If you’d rather, you could also use our Chutney in place of the mincemeat in this Mince Pie Cheese Toastie as this would also work really well and maintain that festive flavour.
If you can, then we’d recommend using a strong, sharp cheddar for this recipe as it really balances the mincemeat well.
It’s also a really good way to use up any leftover cheeses from your cheeseboard, so why not experiment? Blue cheese, Wensleydale, brie… You might just find your new favourite combo!
Another good way to use up any leftovers that you might have is in our Christmas Calzone. You can also find more leftover recipes in our Christmas recipe collection here.
Reduced fat cheese and small slices of wholemeal bread make this festive treat a little lighter than some of the other versions out there, and is a great way to use up any leftovers you might have from Christmas.
What diets is this Mince Pie Cheese Toastie suitable for?
This Mince Pie Cheese Toastie is suitable for vegetarian diets, but please make sure you’re using vegetarian cheese.

Do you need any special ingredients to make this Mince Pie Cheese Toastie?
