Cheese Chilli Toast - I just loved it

Mornings till my daughter is off to school and hubby to office is actually rush hour. There is so much happening in such a short while with packing the tiffin box, breakfast time and then at times a quick morning walk too with hubby dear before he leaves for work. It is some time that we get to catch up. Yesterday after the rush hour was over I wanted to pamper my tastebuds with a little something nice and so I decided to overlook the calories and just go in for taste. This yummy cheese chilli toast was the result. The salty cheesy taste and the occasional spicy bite with the chillies. I loved every bite of it. Am I already looking forward to the next time? If you ask me ....YES.....


Here is the recipe to this quick and easy snack that makes for a great appetizer (just cut it into 4 and serve , breakfast or a lunch box favorite.
Ingredients:
Bread slices -2
Cheese slices -2 (used the Amul cheese slices)
Salt to taste ( if required)
Green Chilli - 1/2 (cut into tiny pieces)
Finely chopped onion - 2 tbsp
Tomato sauce - 1 tbsp

Method:
Sprinkle the finely chopped onions and green chillies on the bread slices. Sprinkle just a little salt if you wish (as I find the cheese slices are not salty enough to my taste). Place the cheese slices on the bread and microwave for 45 secs. Now grill it in your oven for 6-7 minutes till crispy. Take out from the oven and spread the tomato sauce on the toast. It is quick and delicious.

Note: I find that Amul cheese does not melt like the mozaraella effect I need and so for my cheese chilli toast and even for pizzas(when I use grated Amul cheese) I always microwave it for a minute till all the cheese melts well and then grill or bake it till crispy.
