Be it a yummy snack or appetiser. This toast is a quick delight that’s quite easy to make. It’s herby, cheesy, buttery, spicy and garlicky!
How I developed this recipe-
All my friends and family are cheese lovers like anyone in this whole world. And when someone home is too filled for a burger and too underwhelmed about the basic cheese toast, I love to come up with innovative cheese toasts and this recipe that I’m sharing here is one of the best among those.
. Quick & easy- You can make this toast in a few minutes and it’s too easy that all you need as tools is a spoon and a bowl. So if you have any kind of bread at home, you have no excuse from not trying this.
. Herby & garlicky- It has the benefits of oregano, coriander and lots of garlic! Garlic is widely used from ancient times for its medicinal properties and health benefits. It’s anti-flammatory, good for organ health and even known to be anti-cancerous.
What you’ll need-
. 1 tablespoon of butter
. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
. 6 cloves of garlic
. Half teaspoon red chilli flakes
. 1 long green chilli, finely chopped
. Half a red onion, finely chopped (approximately 2-3 tablespoons)
. One by third to half teaspoon oregano
. 2 tablespoons of finely chopped coriander leaves
. 7 cubes/triangles of processed cheddar cheese triangles (about half a cup)
. 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
How to make-
. Take garlic and olive oil in a small bowl and heat cook in a microwave for one and a half minutes ~until garlic is roasted golden.
Process into flakes in a tiny mixer jar after it has cooled down.
. In a larger bowl , throw in the roasted garlic flakes, oregano, chopped coriander leaves, chopped green chillies, chopped onions, both cheeses and red chilli flakes. Mix it up and mash it to a spread like consistency.
. Spread it over your toasted slices of bread and grill it on the top rack of your oven for 7-10 minutes, until golden on top. Serve it hot to snap your lovely cheese pull moments!
