Chilli Cheese Toast

I dislike Chilli Cheese Toast served in most restaurants or Cafes.  Either the bread is too chewy, or there is too much Cheese or too little toppings. 
And there are several cafes, where the toast is made beforehand & they just reheat the toast in the Microwave before serving. 

There is nothing better than a freshly made Chilli Cheese Toast just out of the oven, Right??  So, the best bet is to make your own Toast, the way you like it 

Chilli Cheese Toast

I do not like an overdose of Cheese in my dishes. Be it Pizza, Nachos or this Chilli Cheese Toast. I add loads of toppings & like the taste of the toppings shine through rather than the taste of cheese.

Chilli Cheese Toast

How To:

Cut the Bread slices into triangles. Finely chop the Yellow & Red Peppers. Add the Chilli flakes , dried Basil, Chopped Garlic & salt. Mix well

Grate Mozarella Cheese & set aside

If using a Oven, Preheat the Oven to 180 Degrees for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, On each bread slice, evenly spread the chopped Bell Pepper & Herb mixture. Top with a Tablespoon ( or more if you like ) of grated cheese

Bake the  slices at 180 degrees for 3-4 minutes until the cheese melts. Switch the oven to the Grill mode & grill for about 3 minutes

If using a Microwave, Toast the bread slices in a pan or toaster. Assemble the toppings & cheese. Microwave for 40-60 seconds until the Cheese Melts

Serve Warm with Tomato Ketchup. A couple of slices of this toast & a cup of great Coffee .. Just Perfect :)

NOTE:

I've tried making this on the Stove Top too. I very lightly toasted the bread & assembled the topping & on very low flame I toasted the bread without flipping. But I felt the cheese took forever to melt &  even though the flame was very low, the base of the toast was over crisp. So I prefer the Microwave or the Oven method any day. 

If anybody knows a foolproof method of making this toast on the stove top, do let me know
