Tri Bell Pepper Cheese Toast…and kicking off the new year....

As we enter a new year, wishing all my friends, co-bloggers and readers a very happy and healthy new year. The resolution for me as a blogger is of course to blog more, work upon my photography skills, revamp my blog, update my recipe index … the list seems daunting , but I shall take baby steps on this….

Coming to today’s post – Tri Bell Pepper Cheese Toast

Bell peppers aka capsicum / Shimla Mirch is one of favourite veggies at home – both for me and the kids. This week’s theme for Blogging Marathon is part of Valli’s event Kids Delights - Party Pleasers Theme is hosted by Priya Srinivasan.

Considering I make this often for both parties and as an after school snack, I experimented with a combo of all peppers available, and it turned out pretty good. Both my girls are not into too much cheese, so I cut down that quite a bit. But for cheese lovers, you can top it with as much as required.


Meanwhile do check out 10+ Bell pepper / capsicum dishes here

Prep time : 10 mins ; Bake / Grill time : 8-10 mins : Serves : 2
Makes: 8 pieces
Cuisine : Indian ;  course : Starters / snacks / appetisers
Spice level : Low to Medium

You would need:
  • Bread slices – 4 nos (I used brown bread)
  • Melted Butter / Olive oil – 1 TBSP
  • Grated Cheese – ¼ cup
  • Minced bell pepper – ½ cup (I used all 3 colours)
  • Salt and pepper – to taste



Method:
  1. Trim edges  of a bread slice(I retained them as is) and cut the bread slices diagonally into two pieces each .
  2. Mix cheese and minced bell pepper and keep aside.
  3. Spread the melted butter /  olive oil on all cut slices.
  4. Toast the slices on a lined tray in a preheated oven for 2-3 mins (or roast slightly on a tava / skillet) until crisp
  5. Now spread the cheese+ veggie mixture. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste
  6. Grill further for 3-4 mins  till cheese melts (if using a tava, press the top gently on both sides till cheese slightly melts)
  7. Cool slightly and serve warm
