How to make cheese and walnut toasts

Prepare: Five minutes

Cook: Five minutes

Serves: Two

Ingredients:

  • Two slices white farmhouse bread
  • Two tbsp caramelised onion chutney
  • 75g grated Cheddar & Mozzarella cheese
  • 25g California Walnuts, chopped
  • Two spring onions, finely sliced
  • One red chilli, finely chopped (optional)

Method:

Preheat the grill to high.

Next, toast one side of the bread and spread the chutney on the untoasted side.

Then, mix together the cheese, walnuts, spring onions and chilli and sprinkle it over the chutney.

Finally, place the toast under the grill for two to three minutes until it’s “melted and golden”.

If you’re not a fan of spicy food, the red chilli can be removed.

You can also use a different type of bread, like sourdough or wholemeal, or a different flavour chutney or cheese, if you prefer.
