  1. Preheat the grill to high. Meanwhile, toast the bread in a toaster until just golden.
  2. Trim the crusts off the sides of the toast (leaving the top and bottom crusts) and cut each slice into 3 long fingers. Place on a baking tray and spread each finger with the tomato purée, then add 2 olive slices for eyes.
  3. Cut the Cheddar into thin slices, about ½ cm thick. Lay each slice flat and slice lengthways into long thin strips, again about ½ cm thick. Trim the cheese sticks to the same width as the toast fingers and arrange across the toasts to look like bandages, overlapping diagonally down the toasts.
  4. Grill the toasts for 45 secs – 1 min until the cheese has just started to melt. Transfer to a plate and serve.
