Cheese Toastie with a crown

Deana Hurd with Lulu's Tea Room took inspiration from British chef Jamie Oliver to make this version of a grilled cheese.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Cheese Toastie with a Crown
Prepared by Deana Hurd of Lulu's Tea Room


Two slices of thick cut bread
One cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons of butter


Melt butter on medium heat in a small skillet. Place 3/4 cup of shredded cheese onto a slice of bread and cover with the second slice of bread. Grill each side for three minutes and lift sandwich with a spatula. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of shredded cheddar into the hot skillet and move toward the edges. Place your sandwich in the middle of the skillet for 10 seconds. Lift the sandwich up with a spatula for 30 seconds and let the cheese harden to form a crown.
