Recipe: Flaveur Bread | Photography: Vicki Ravlich-Horan
Flaveur Bread’s stunning Black Gold Sourdough is a fairly large loaf of bread, so this recipe will come in handy! Of course, you could use any high quality bread, but reasonably thick slices are key.
slices of Flaveur Bread’s Black Gold Sourdough, cut at least 15mm thick
caramelised onion (homemade or from a jar)
2 cups milk
2 cups full flavoured ale (we use Mount Brewing Company IPA)
1 tsp dry mustard powder
pinch of chilli powder
2 tsp brown sugar
½ tsp Worcestershire sauce
50g Mount Eliza Red Leicester cheese
3 egg yolks
salt & pepper
chopped spring onions and chives
Make a roux by melting the butter in a small pot and stirring in the flour. Cook for 1‒2 minutes before whisking in the milk and beer. Add in the mustard, chilli, brown sugar and Worcestershire. Continue to stir until thick, then check and adjust the seasoning. Take off the heat and cool slightly before mixing in the egg yolks.
Spread each slice of Black Gold with the caramelised onions, top this with the roux and finish with a sprinkle of the Red Leicester cheese.
Grill until the cheese blisters and colours. Serve garnished with chopped spring onions and/or chives.
