breakfast of the day: cheese toast

after a not-so-successful attempt at making the Macanese cheese on toast, I made some research for alternative recipes.

The missing key ingredient seems to be:  Mustard

So here comes a suggested recipe –

Best Ever Cheese On Toast

Serves 1
Time: Under 15 minutes
Cost: Under £1 a head

A good chunk (about 75g) mature Cheddar or Lancashire cheese
1 tsp plain flour
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp brown sauce or 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard or 1/4 tsp English mustard
A couple of thick slices of wholemeal bread

Grate the cheese and put it into a small non-stick saucepan. Mix in the flour and the milk. Heat gently, stirring, while you make the toast. As soon as the cheese mixture is smooth stir in the brown sauce or mustard. Pour over the toast.

and these ones,

The first one is basic.

& the second one, yum.

serves 2

Again, the choice of cheese is in your court. The mayo makes it a bit moister so you could easily use hard cheese such as parmesan or manchengo. For me right now, Irish cheddar is where it’s at.

Also lovely with a slice or 2 of smoked ham layered under the cheese.

For an even more rich experience replace the mayo with an egg yolk.

2 slices rustic bread
2 handfuls grated cheese
1t wholegrain mustard
1T whole egg mayonnaise

Preheat oven to 250C (480F).

Generously butter bread and place on a baking tray lined with foil or baking paper.

Bake for 3 minutes or until butter is melted.

Combine cheese, mustard and may. Completely cover the bread with the cheese mixture.

Bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling with golden brown patches.
