Impromptu Toastie - Garlic Cheesy Bready

With all this talk of pizza, one cannot help but notice a serious lack of garlic bread!

To overcome my need for garlic, today’s impromptu toastis is my experimental garlic cheesy bread! Why add cheese, you ask? There had to be something to the middle, otherwise it would not be a toastie!

The important thing to remember when making this is not to smother the outside of the bread with too much buttery garlic goodness. If you add too much, the bread will become soggy.

Garlic Cheesy Bread

Makes: 2 toasties

  • 4 slices of bread
  • 4 tbsp. grated mozzarella and cheddar cheese
  • garlic butter

  1. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  2. Place one slice of bread, butter side down, onto the bottom grill plate.
  3. Spoon half of the cheese onto the centre of the bread.
  4. Place the top piece of bread on top of the mixture, butter side up.
  5. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the other grill plate.
  6. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.

  • Experiment with different types of cheese. I like to use a blend of mozzarella and cheddar.

  • If you want to make your own garlic butter combine 60g of softened butter with 1-2 cloves of crushed parsley and 1 tsp. of dried parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
