cheese on toast

On a snackish forage through the fridge after my ride back from the bakery (and work, but the bakery part is relevant later), I discovered a small piece of Brie in need of eating. Brie for one!

I think I may have created the perfect indulgent snack:

Take the end of a fresh loaf of bread, thickly sliced.
Cut last bit of Brie into slices, cover bread in cheese.
Place in toaster oven, set to Broil.
Broil until toasty.
Drizzle fig marmalade over melted cheese.

I suppose, if fig marmalade is unavailable, any other not too sweet fruit preserve would be acceptable.

Fig marmalade!

(too bad i didn't notice the wee bit of open gewurz. in the fridge, or we'd have had a perfect complement)

Perhaps we ought to have a category for toaster oven indulgences...

I've been eating cheese toast all weekend! I discovered it on Friday and it's been my late night snack, along with a cup of warm milk, ever since. I used cheddar, though, which was very good, but I imagine the Brie was better.

Ok - heres how I do it...

Lightly toast the bread in the toaster first to get it evenly toasted. Then place it on the grill tray, and place slices of cheddar (non-crumbly cheese is easier to slice than crumbly - I tend to use a potato peeler to get even, thin slices of cheese). Add tomato ketchup (or worcester sauce) on top, and sprinkle with mixed herbs and pepper. Pop it under a pre-heated grill for a couple of minutes, and enjoy.
