I’ve been in London for the past few days visiting my sister but also attending the best conference I’ve attended in a while: Food Blogger Connect 2015. I’ll write a post on that experience later but right now, I’d like to share a simple recipe inspired by my first workshop (which was recipe writing) at Food Blogger Connect. We had so much fun during those two hours trying out our recipe-writing skills by focusing on a simple recipe: cheese on toast. When we were asked to write a first draft and read it out loud, I was amazed at how different each recipe was. We truly interpret things differently, which makes food all the more interesting. Some presented the Indian way to make cheese on toast, others added a splash of a sauce, and one of them even took it to the next level by adding Tuscan touches to it.
Mine was pretty simple as cheese on toast represents a fast but scrumptious dinner to me. It’s for a typical rainy evening when you’re so tired and so hungry that you can’t be bothered cooking a full-fledged meal. I’ll guarantee you’ll like it though.
If you’re reading this on that specific night you get back home tired and dangerously hungry, here’s the recipe written in a way to fit your mood 😉
Quick Cheese on Toast For the Tired and Dangerously Hungry
Ingredients (serves 1 easily satisfied individual):
- 2 Fat slices of toast (Not gluten-free unless you have a severe allergy to it)
- 2 Thick slices of cheddar cheese
- 2 Tbsp of coarsely grated emmental cheese (or any other soft cheese of your preference)
- 1 tsp of butter
How to make it:
- Take out any pan you can find lying around and heat it up on medium heat.
- Melt the butter in the pan and throw one slice of toast on top.
- Add all of the cheese on the toast until it forms a mountain of cheesy goodness, then top it all with another slice of toast.
- Press both slices together and wait for the cheese to melt all over the place.
- Turn the sandwich on the other side and cook until it gets the way you like it.
Eat and Repeat!
