You may already know that I’m not a cheese-addict, however I do love making Halloumi Pasta.
The other day I had another barren fridge moment and wasn’t sure what to make: but then I heard the mozzarella inside the fridge calling the bread (more hunger hallucinations?) and I had an idea: I would make Italian style cheese on toast 🙂
I don’t like the ordinary cheese on toast with cheddar, but mozzarella is fresher and has a more delicate flavour and worked really well.
This recipe is super quick, simple and easy, perfect for any day and very moreish! And, it’s a pretty sustainable dish as it has no meat!
The best pan to use for this recipe is a griddle pan: I got mine from the M&S outstanding value range for £5!
Mozzarella on Toast
Ingredients for 1 person:
- 1 Mozzarella, sliced
- 2 or 3 (if you are considerably hungry) slices of brown bread
- 1 Tsp mixed herbs
- Freshly cracked black pepper
- Chilli sauce (optional)
-Preheat the griddle pan on a medium heat
-Place the slices of bread on the griddle pan
-Leave to crisp for a few minutes on each side (you can leave it to reach the level of crispiness you prefer)
-Add the slices of mozzarella on top of the bread slices and add the mixed herbs
-Let the mozzarella warm up and start melting for a couple of minutes, add freshly ground black pepper
-Turn up the heat and turn over the slices so the mozzarella is directly on the griddle pan: a minute or 2 will make it oozier and crispy
-Add a few dashes of spicy sauce if you want
