  • For the cheese-and-onion soda bread:
  • 500 g cake flour
  • 2 t bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 t salt
  • 80 g Gouda cheese, grated
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped and sauteed
  • 2 cups amasi
  • 15 g mixed seeds
  • For the swanky sauce, mix:
  • 1⁄3 cup mayonnaise
  • 50 g crème fraiche
  • 30 g gherkins, finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • 1 T Hot English mustard
  • 10 g Italian parsley, finely chopped
  • For the sandwich:
  • 50 g baby spinach, washed
  • 4 slices gouda
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 free-range eggs, fried
  • 160 g bacon, fried
  • chips, for serving

1. To make the bread, preheat the oven to 200°C. Combine all the dry ingredients. Add the cheese and onion and combine. Add the amasi and stir in until a shaggy dough forms. Grease a 19 x 9 cm loaf tin and place the dough inside and sprinkle with the seeds. Bake the bread for 45 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

2. To assemble the sandwich, slice two slices of the bread and spread both with the swanky sauce. Add the spinach, a slice of cheese, red onion, tomato, avocado, eggs and bacon. Close the sandwich and slice. Serve with chips and a cute note.
