We are currently addicted to this “Indian” variation of a simple grilled cheese sandwich. It’s always fun to take something familiar and mix it up just a little bit. We enjoyed these cheese toasts recently before a family hike and they kept us satisfied as we got some exercise and fresh air. It was also a fun little cooking project with the little one. For kids, feel free to omit the chillies altogether – the tomatoes, onions and herbs are enough of a twist. Another thing we like about this recipe is that you can make multiple cheese toasts at one time by using a sheet tray and the oven, versus slaving over each grilled cheese over the stove. This is the perfect after school snack for a playdate.
Next time we make these, we are going to try different types of cheeses – goat cheese, gruyere, mozzarella or perhaps even some fontina. Or maybe even a variety of leftover cheeses that seem to always languish in our fridge. Another yummy addition could be finely chopped colorful bell peppers.
A throwback to my childhood that I had forgotten all about…excited to have it back :)!
