Now for those of you not in the know Leigh is a town near Wigan (of the pier fame) and in days gone by a place apparently famous for its variety of toasting Lancashire Cheese, apparently in the 1600 and 1700's large quantities where exported to London.
Dewlay, a Lancashire cheese manufacturing company have revived this beloved variety of Lancashire cheese so we can all experience its claim to fame. It is made from locally sourced milk and is carefully matured until reaches the desired taste and texture. Both tasty and creamy varieties of Lancashire Cheese toast well, but Leigh Toaster is in a league of its own , its a softer creamer variety of cheese and melts in moments under the grill and is deliciously still a Lancashire cheese at heart.
Here is a classic cheese on toast grilled until slightly golden , with just a splash of brown sauce (homemade) to make life more interesting still.
