METHOD

  • 1

    To make the filling, place the blueberries, cornstarch, lemon juice and zest, salt and sugar into a medium pot over a medium-high heat. Stirring the mixture, cook until slightly thickened. Take off the heat and leave aside to cool completely.

  • 2

    While the filling cools, butter one side of each of the slices of bread and press into the sugar so it coats evenly.

  • 3

    When ready to cook, prepare the grill. Once at a medium-high heat, place the bread slices on the grill, sugar-side down and fill every second slice with about 3 tbsp of filling.

  • 4

    Once the sugar begins to caramelise, place the empty slices on top of the filled ones and grill until golden and crunchy.
