Garlic Toast

Again, a recipe that has its recent origins at my work place. All of us in my lunch group felt that we had boring stuff in our lunch boxes and decided to order a little something to pep up the meal. So, we decided to get some garlic bread and potato wedges from Slice of Italy. The potato wedges were deep fried and I like mine grilled. But the garlic bread was superb.

That same evening, I wanted to try it out. But I didn't have french bread, so I used whatever slices I had at home. I also didn't want to be too generous with the cheese as that much cheese, twice in the same day, may be a little too heavy to handle.

I grilled the slices of bread for 3 minutes on each side. I prepared the garlic butter spread using

1 tbsp Butter
1/2 tsp mixed herbs (basil, parsley, thyme)
1/2 tsp Chilli flakes
1 tsp Garlic, finely chopped

I spread this on the prepared slices and grilled them for a minute more. I grated a small block of cooking cheese and sprinkled this ober the slices and grilled for another 90 seconds. The cheese came out all bubbly on top and the garlic toast was divine. I wanted to make some soup and have it along with the toast. Then again, lazy me took over the enthusiastic me and I ended up eating just the toast for dinner. Yum!

I love galic breads very much. Adding cooking cheese to it is new to me. Will try doing that next time. Thanx buddy.

Yeah Seema... we draw inspiration for our cooking for just about anywhere, don't we? :)
