What is a Cheese Chilli Toast?
Cheese Chilli Toast is basically cheese on a toast. For that, some cheese is put on a toasted bread with some hot sauces and extra toppings , and then grilled in an oven. For this bread snack recipe, particularly cheddar cheese is preferred as after grilling it gives an amazing flavour.
This bread recipe is made with sauces like tomato sauce, brown sauce (made with molasses and spices) and even Worcestershire sauce. This easy snack is basically hot because of the spices and chillies added in it with an aromatic flavour of cheese…hmmm… I can actually smell it when I write all this!

We can make this amazing recipe in many ways. It is so popular that there are endless recipes of it, each unique with the ingredients they use and how they are made/ cooked / baked/ grilled. Yes, there are just so many options to make this yummy cheese chilli toast.
The recipe I am sharing here is the best one. Why I am saying that is because it is pretty much basic and doesn’t at all require much preparation. And we are not going to bake or grill it. We will simply make it on a tawa / gridle / pan. Much easier and quicker… right?!

There is however one shortcoming of this recipe. These cheese chilli toast are so delicious that they get finished quickly and then they don’t stop at being only a snack. They are addictive and please don’t make them if you don’t have enough ingredients to start with. By enough I mean cheese and bread in good quantity because your family is surely not gonna stop after eating one or two slices… be prepared 😉
Important Points for Cheese Chilli Toast
1.Cheese – It is an essential ingredient of this easy bread recipe. You can not replace it with anything else. However you can choose from so many cheese available in the market. Cheddar cheese is good if you are grilling it. But other than that you can choose the most basic and easily available cheese in India that is processed cheese. You can also use mozzarella cheese for it. The choice is yours.
2.Bread – Bread is a must have for this recipe. You can choose from white bread, brown bread or multi grain bread. However, using a multi grain bread will add a little more texture and taste to it so I would suggest to better stick to brown or white bread.
3.Chilli – Now chilli again is a must have for this recipe. Use both green chillies and red chilli flakes to increase the hotness of this cheese chilli toast. However, while making for kids you can simply skip or reduce the chillies.
4.Some other toppings – I have used some carrots and capsicum in this recipe along with cheese for a little crunch in the toast. You can use onions, ginger or some tomatoes too if you wish.
5.Butter – To toast bread I have used some garlic butter. The garlic butter is not store-bought and I have prepared it at home. You can check it below how I have made it easily. You may use simple salted butter too but the flavour of garlic takes the deliciousness factor of this bread snack to another level. I recommend using garlic butter only.

1.Mix grated garlic in soft butter (not melted). Garlic butter is ready.
2.Apply this garlic butter on one side of the bread slices. Use butter generously.
3.Turn the bread slice with butter side down. Spread some grated cheese. Quantity of cheese depends on you. My kids like cheese so I use it in good quantity. Add chopped green chilli, carrots and capsicum. Add red chilli flakes on it. Add a little more cheese on the top. It helps to stick the toppings to the bread nicely. And a little more cheese never hurts anyone. 🙂
4.Put this bread, butter side down in a pan. Keep the heat low. Cover and cook on low heat only for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese melts.
5. Take out and serve hot with tomato sauce or dips of your choice.
