Blue Cheese Walnut Toast | Quick Snack Recipe | After School Snack Recipe

Blue Cheese Walnut Toast

Hi Supermoms,

Often, making after school snacks can be challenging for young mothers. A light , yet tasty snack is always the first choice. If such a snack can be made within 10 minutes, is'nt it great ? 

This toast is different from the regular cheese toast and is healthier as we are adding walnuts.   Walnuts are rich in Vitamin E and other anti oxidants and a handful of nuts a day is highly recommended for good health.  Whether you are serving it as a  starter to any party or as a after school snack, the Blue Cheese Walnut Toast is just delicious. 

You can use any bread of your choice. Also, if blue cheese is not  available , you can easily substitute it with mozarella chesse or cheddar cheese. Crisp on the outside and soft cheesy inside, this toast is a must try . I have used the conventional oven to bake these toasts, but it turns out yummy even when toasted over the pan using the gas stove.  If you are using a gas stove, then toast the walnuts till lightly roasted. You can toast the bread with butter and add the cheese on one side of the hot bread so that the cheese will melt faster. You can cover with a large lid for one minute to speed up the cooking. Add the herbs of your choice and you can also add other dry fruits like cashewnuts, pecans, almonds etc., You can even cut the bread in different shapes ( if using normal bread loaf) to make it more fun and attractive.
