Olive oil, for the skillet

4 thick slices seedy wheat bread 

2 ounces shaved white Cheddar 

2 ounces shaved Parmesan 

1/4 cup labneh 

Za'atar, for sprinkling

Sumac, for sprinkling

Tomato soup, for serving, optional


  1. Heat a thin layer of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Toast the bread slices on one side until lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes, then flip them over. Top 2 slices with the Cheddar and Parmesan. Spread the other 2 slices with the labneh and sprinkle with a pinch of za'atar and sumac. Carefully sandwich each Cheddar/Parmesan slice with a labneh slice, cover with a lid and cook until the bottom is toasted, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip, cover and cook until the other side is toasted and the Parmesan and Cheddar are melted, another 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a plate, cut diagonally and serve with tomato soup if desired.
