This chilli cheese toast with garlic and olives recipe is as versatile as it is tasty. It's the perfect canapé, breakfast, lunch, snack or tea time treat!
Using a fork, mash up the cheddar cheese slices and mix with flour.
Add the salt, egg and baking powder and mix to form a paste. It should be spreadable, like butter. If mixture is too hard, add milk a teaspoon at a time until you reach desired consistency.
Add chillis and garlic powder, mix to combine.
Spread mixture on the bread slices. You should have enough to easily spread over four slices of bread. Spread it as you would a cream cheese: not too thick, not too thin.
Top the toast with olives and sprinkle with oregano.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan. (Each slice should only need about a tablespoon of oil)
When oil is hot, place one slice of bread cheese-side down. Fry on low-medium flame until mixture is cooked through and cheese is golden brown. Flip over and toast the plain side until lightly golden and crispy.
Place on paper towel to get rid of excess oil.
Repeat with remaining slices.
Cut slices diagonally into triangles and serve.
I like these plain, but if you want to make a super quick chutney to serve with these, here's the recipe:
Combine equal parts green coriander and green chili, a clove of garlic, a pinch of salt and yogurt (as desired to thin out the chutney). Blend to desired consistency. If too watery, chill in the fridge to firm up before serving.
