Featuring in this post are 2 simple yet lips smacking snacks prepared from plain mini log breads and basic ingredients commonly found in every kitchen. Easy to prepare snacks and perfect for afternoon tea. Check this out...
Cheese and Sesame Mini Log Bread Toast
Ingredients: 6 slices of mini log bread, a slice of Gouda cheese and some white sesame seed.
Top the Gouda cheese (break into pieces) on the mini log bread and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top of the cheese slices. Pop the log breads into the oven and toast for 7 minutes (at 180c heat) until the cheese melted and the log bread turn crispy.
Melted cheese and toasted sesame seeds is indeed a perfect match made in heaven. The crunch of the well toasted bread, couple with the nutty sesame seeds and savory cheese, this is absolutely good and addictive.
Mini Log Bread French Toast
Ingredients: 6 slices of mini log bread, cooking oil, butter, 1 beaten egg with some curry powder, milk (optional), salt and pepper to taste.
Heat up a pan with butter and oil. Soak the mini log bread (both side) into the egg mixture and pan fry in the heated pan for 2 minutes until the bread lightly brown. Flip the log bread with a spatula and pan fry the other side for another 2 minutes. Repeat the same for the rest of the log bread slices.
The bite size yet perfect round shape French Toast not only looks appealing but also tastes good. Serve it with some tomato ketchup if you prefer it to be a savory snack. For sweet tooth folks, just enjoy the French Toast with a sprinkle of icing powder and maple syrup. Tangy raspberry fruit jams go well with the French toast too.
