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 Upmaor Dosafor 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
- Fresh white or brown bread – sliced and trimmed slightly – 8
- 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)
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.
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.
Cut the trimmed bread into any shape you want (I made it as
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.
