Simply Cheese Toast

Sometimes the simplest foods taste best.

To make this snack, I turned the oven on to 350 degrees. I buttered a couple slices of honey wheat bread, and topped them with a few slices from a chunk of extra sharp cheddar cheese. Before I put it in the oven, I picked up my peppermill and cranked some black pepper on top. I then placed it in the oven and baked for about 15 minutes.

My mother would say, "Now, Rocquie, you can't afford to be running the oven every time you want to make a piece of toast". She toasts her bread first, in the toaster, then tops it with cheese, which she proceeds to melt under the broiler.

That method works, but I like my toast really crisp, which baking achieves. This cheese toast was golden brown on bottom and very crispy. I take it out just as the cheese barely begins to brown, because I like the cheese really gooey.

The baked cheese toast made a fine lunch with a hot cup of tea with scalded milk.


  1. Oh. That brings back memories.
    I haven't made cheese toast in such a long time. I loved it with cinnamon toast.
    I'd eat a piece of cheese toast, then cinnamon, and alternate.
    I think I'll fix that for breakfast tomorrow.
