Oozy, crispy & comforting, our Tiger Bloomer gives this triple grilled cheese an extra flavour punch! The perfect lunch to go with a rainy day and a box set binge.


  • 4 slices of Tiger Bloomer
  • 50g Gruyere cheese
  • 35g Mature Cheddar cheese
  • 35g Red Leicester cheese
  • For the caramelised onions:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large red onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  1. First up, make the caramelised red onions. In a large pan, heat the oil over a gentle heat and add the onions & a pinch of salt.
  2. After 5 minutes, add the garlic & herbs and stir occasionally for another 20 minutes until soft and golden.
  3. Add the sugar & balsamic vinegar, stir and gently cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
  5. For the grilled cheese, take your Tiger Bloomer slices and spread one slice from each sandwich with 1 tbsp. of caramelised red onion mixture.
  6. Grate the three cheeses into a bowl and mix together.
  7. Divide the cheese mixture in two and pile on top of the caramelised onion. Top with another slice of Tiger.
  8. Grease a heavy bottomed pan with a little rapeseed oil and when the oil is hot, place the sandwiches into the pan and press down with a spatula.
  9. On a medium heat, cook for 3-4 minutes until golden and then flip over and cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  10. Cut the sandwich in half and enjoy the cheesy goodness!
