Parmesan Cheese Toast

Updated on April 26, 2012

My husband and I both like bread. So when I go grocery shopping, I usually check out the day old bakery rack where I am able to get a variety breads at a discounted price. It's a special treat when I can pick up whole grain breads at a discounted price which I was able to this week.

Because it is older, sometimes the bread will be somewhat dry, and not very palatable. But no problem! I have an instant solution when this happens. In fact, there are certain breads that I purchase just to prepare this recipe: baguette, French bread, and whole grain loaves.

I have been making this bread for over 30 years; and every time I do, it disappears quickly. My husband and I both make trips into the kitchen just to get a piece or two when we have the munchies.

I went grocery shopping yesterday, and picked up a couple packages of multigrain dinner rolls. I am really looking forward to this batch because the bread has cracked wheat, whole sunflower seeds, millet, and flaxseeds in it. The rolls are very dry, so it's time to share with you a very easy recipe, Parmesan Cheese Toast.

Parmesan Cheese Toast can be served with salad instead of bread sticks or croutons. It also makes a great side dish to serve with spaghetti or lasagne. Cut into smaller pieces prior to toasting, it would make great appetizers, or a base for an appetizer. It's very good served with soups and stews, such as tortellini soup. And then, it also makes just plain great snacking.

Whatever kind of bread you get, the first thing to do is to slice it into 3/8"-1/2" thick slices.

Next, arrange the bread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil until lightly brown. I like to cover my baking pan with foil, making for easy clean-up later. I also turn up any heels/crusts at this time. With the bread I am using this time, there are a lot of heels/crusts.

You can see in this picture, the first side of the bread lightly toasted under the broiler.

Spread butter or margarine on the untoasted side, and arrange in a single layer on the baking sheet again. For extra flavor, you can sprinkle with herbs or garlic powder. I have also mixed minced garlic with the butter before spreading. PAM can also be sprayed on the bread instead of spreading with butter or margarine. Then sprinkle with parmesan cheese. This is where you will see the advantage to using foil for the clean up. I have used both grated and shredded. I think the shredded cheese makes a better toast. If using PAM, I generally spray the cheese lightly before continuing.

Broil again until lightly browned. It's good to keep an eye on it because it burns quickly. Remove from pan and serve immediately. Yummy!
