Cheese Toasts are delicious, simple and take very little time to prepare! They are perfect for appetizers at parties, to accompany your favorite soup, or served for lunch!

Cheese Toasts Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup grated cheese (Jack and Cheddar is a delicious combination)

  • 1 egg, divided

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • a pinch of cayenne or smoked paprika

  • a pinch of salt

  • 1 8 or 9-inch long piece of bread, or 12 thin slices baguette or other favorite bread.

  • Smoked or plain paprika

Cheese Toast Directions

  • Heat your oven or toaster oven to 400°F. Ensure the rack is in the middle or lower.

  • Grate the cheese and set it aside.

  • Beat the yolk with the mustard, cayenne, and salt with a fork. Stir in the grated cheese.

  • Whisk the egg white by hand in a mixing bowl until firm peaks are formed. Fold it into the cheese, then heap the mixture onto the bread you’re using.

  • Slide into the toaster oven and bake until puffed and golden, about 10 minutes. When done, remove from the oven and dust lightly with smoked paprika or plain paprika.

  • Serve whole or cut into pieces.
