Cheesy Peppery Toast | Quick Kids Snacks

Kiddo's mood once she returns from a rather long day at school varies according to the kind of subjects she had that day - if its art, she is bubbly, if its a subject she particularly doesnt like, she is grumpy and rejects all healthy foods like Upma or Dosa for an evening snack. Today's post - Cheesy Peppery Toast - is cool and quick for any occasion - be it an after school snack or a  party you are hosting. Trust me you cant go wrong with such a fuss-free and quick to make snack. Lets proceed. Sending this to Day 2 of BM #29 & also to event at my blog - Kids Delight - Finger Food for party


Prep time - 10 mins | Cook time : 5 mins | Serves : 4

Ingredients:
  • Fresh white or brown bread - sliced and trimmed slightly - 8 slices
  • Processed grated cheese - 1/2 cup (I used Amul processed cheese)
  • Bell Pepper - 1/4 cup - cut into strips
  • Onion - 1/4 chopped fine
  • Tomato - 1/4 cup - deseeded and chopped fine
  • Salt - to taste (rem, cheese also has salt)
  • Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Tomato ketchup - 4 to 5 TBSP
  • Olive Oil - 1 to 3 TBSP (for light toasting)

Notes:
Same topping can be used on Cut out Pizzas, Bruschettas or Savoury Biscotti. Feel free to add any more toppings as you please-Minced Olives, green and yellow bell peppers, Mushroom, Baby corn. You may also use Mozarella cheese instead of normal processed cheese to get stringy cheesy mini Toasts.
I havent used Butter at all for these toasts. You may add it if you please.

Method:
For the Topping : 
Mix all ingredients except Tomato Ketchup, Olive oil & bread and make it into a thick mixture. Keep aside for 3-5 mins till onions water. Mix again 
To Assemble: 
Cut the trimmed bread into any shape you want (I made it as roundels). 
Tip : Flatten out the bread once with a rolling pin before applying the topping - it helps even out the bread
Heat a tava or skillet, now add tomato ketchup on top and spoon in 1-2 tsp of the topping.Spread evenly till it covers the bread slice
Repeat for all bread slices. Slightly roast till the bread turns crispy. Drizzle remaining olive oil and serve immediately.
