Gruyere & Parmesan Cheese Toasts
SERVES 6 SUPER EASY
A grilled cheese toast is so simple and yet so tasty. Serve with soup, or even floating on a soup, with a salad or simple vegetable dish. The paste keeps well in the fridge for several days and can be extremely useful to have on hand.
100 g (4 oz) Gabriel or Gruyere–style cheese, finely grated
90 g (3½ oz) Parmesan, finely grated
120 g (4½ oz) unsalted butter, softened
6 slices country–style bread, 2 cm (¾ in) thick
In a bowl, work the two cheeses together with the butter until you have a cohesive paste. Lightly toast the bread slices on each side. Spread a generous amount of the cheese paste on to each slice, at least 5 mm (¼ in) thick. Place the toasts under the grill for 1–2 minutes and watch carefully. They are done when the top is golden brown and bubbly: Serve immediately:
