You might have noticed that all of my recipes on the blog lately are my mum’s. That’s because my parents have a better kitchen to take photos for recipe blog posts AND my mum has a lot more delicious recipes (mostly with a Sri Lankan twist) up her sleeve than me.
So today I wanted to share another one of my mum’s recipes and one of my favourite comfort foods – mum’s cheesey toasts. They are different to most other cheese toasts because they have a light sprinkling of green chilli (which is the Sri Lankan twist). These toasts are warm, crunchy, salty and spicy…. The perfect snack to get over a bad day – or enhance a good one! And they are even better with mum’s Sri Lankan style condensed milk tea…but I’ll leave that recipe for another day!
For mum’s cheesey toasts you need:
- Sourdough bread, sliced
- Parmesan cheese, shaved
- Tomato sauce, about a tablespoon in a cup
- Green chilli, thinly sliced
To make them you need to:
- Turn oven to 190 degrees Celsius, fan forced.
- Spread some margarine on the sourdough slices
- Pop slices of bread onto a baking tray covered with foil.
- Lay the cheese on the bread.
- Sprinkle a few green chilli slices.
- With a teaspoon, drizzle tomato sauce onto the cheese.
- Pop in the oven for 15 minutes or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted!
- Take the cheesey toasts out of the oven and cool for about 5 minutes.
