Veggie Cheese Toast / Vegetable Cheese Toast- stove top (tawa) version

Share with friends and family

 Veggie cheese toast is a quick snack that can be prepared in less than 20mins and served as breakfast,  after school snacks or even as party starters . 

The grated cheese on top is a sure shot child pleaser and the best way to attract children and feed them their share of vegetables disguised under the cheese 🧀.  

I have used less cheese but you can use the cheese depending on your liking and taste . I basically don't like too much cheese while hubby loves cheese, so his share of toast had a liberal topping of cheese while mine was very very less. We had this yummy toast sandwich with piping hot tomato rasam and it was a complete meal by itself. 

Veggie cheese toast pairs well with Lemon corriander soup as well . The level of crispness of the toast is also purely your choice.  If you like a crisp toast, then toast it for some extra time on the tawa on medium flame ensuring that you don't burn the base .

Preparation Time - 10 mins 
Cooking Time - 15 mins

8 slices of bread of your choice (sandwich/multigrain/brown bread)

  • Take one bread slice and spread the stuffing on it,sprinkle some mixed herbs and grated the cheese on top as much as like .
  • Place this slice of bread on a hot tawa with a little butter and cover with a lit till the cheese melts.  Open the lid and continue to toast on low flame till the bread becomes crisp and crunchy. 
  • Remove it from the tawa and place it on a cooling rack and then cut it into slices and serve with soup , rasam or even piping hot tea or coffee.
  • Repeat the same for the other slices of bread . You may also saute some onions along with the tomatoes for an added taste .
