National Cheese Toast Day

Not to be confused with a grilled cheese sandwich, cheese toast is a single slice of bread… topped with cheese and then baked or broiled to unleash the cheese’s melty mahhhhhvelousness.  Mom introduced me to this back in the 1950’s. Her favorite method is still mine today.

Cheese Toast
Bread slice
¼“ thick slices of muenster cheese (or some other melty delight)

Arrange cheese on the bread slice in single layer. Place in oven preheated to broil, 5-6” from the heat source for 1-2 minutes till melty and bubbly. Serve immediately.

KISS Tips: Yes, you can add all sorts of wonderful goodies under or over the cheese. Try thinly sliced bell peppers and/or tomatoes, for example. Or tomatoes. Or ham. Or chicken. Or a favorite, funky sauce. Or a sprinkle of herbs. Or… simply enjoy it au natural. Serve on its own, or as a side with soup or salad.
