Puffy Cheese & Egg Toast
My aunt let me grate the cheese and crack the eggs open, and we would have the most wonderful conversations as we toasted, mixed and grilled.
I rarely make these toasts now, only for the kids, and when I do sometimes I add bacon, herbs, diced pineapple, whatever I fancy.
But in those moments when I want to feel comforted & safe, I make it just the way my aunt taught me and reminisce about the special times I spent with her.
I hope you enjoy it too :)
- 1/2 c
- cheese, grated
- slices of bread
- 1 pinch
- cayenne pepper to taste
2. Toast one side of sliced bread under the oven grill
3. Spread cheese and egg mixture thinly over untoasted side of bread, make sure you cover entire surface
4. Grill (not too close to the top of oven, go down one level) until puffy and golden, season with salt and cayenne pepper
You can add bacon, ham, parsley, sundried tomato, anything you like. Cut into triangles and serve with soup or top with a fried egg and a side of ham or bacon and wilted spinach.
