"Thick slices of toasted white bread topped with onions, tomato and cheese, then broiled until golden brown" - Cricketers British Pub and Restaurant.
After my eyes feasted, the tasting quickly followed. The plate was accompanied with a dip of Worcestershire sauce. I found this a little odd, but was optimistic and it worked out pretty well. A dip and a bite later and I soon discovered caramelized onions and tangy tomato hidden under the cheese. It was delicious. I promised myself then I would reverse engineer it at home.
