Servings: 2


  • 100 g ground beef
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 slices bread
  • 4 slices gouda cheese
  • 1 tsp butter


  • In a small non-stick pan, heat the olive oil and add the beef together with the slices scallions.
  • Cook for 5-7 min or until the meat it brown and crispy.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place a cheese slice each on two slices of bread. Carefully spoon the ground beef on, top with the remaining two cheese slices and add the remaining two slices of bread.
  • Butter the outsides of your sandwiches.
  • Remove the access fat from the frying pan (I usually just whipe it out with a paper towel) and set over medium heat.
  • Add the sandwiches and bake 4-8 minutes on each side or until the outside is golden brown and the cheese inside is melted.


In this recipe I used aged gouda, but you can use any melting cheese you like, except maybe mozarella. The taste of mozarella is way too subtle for the string flavour of the ground beef. So go with a strong cheese.
