Read an Excerpt

Texas Toast cheesy bread


1 cup grated Mexican cheese blend

1/2 teaspoon smoked or sweet paprika

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

8 slices Texas Toast, crusts removed

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 cup chopped cilantro for garnish (optional)

Makes 24

Preheat a grill pan or fry pan to medium-low heat 5 minutes before grilling.

Toss together cheese, paprika, and garlic powder in a medium-size mixing bowl. Set aside.

Brush each bread slice lightly on both sides with melted butter.

Grill bread slices on each side until lightly toasted, about 30 to 45 seconds per side.

Sprinkle seasoned cheese equally over top side of grilled toasts. Cover with foil for about 1 minute to allow cheese to melt.

Remove covering and place each grilled toast on a cutting board. Allow to cool about 1 minute, and then slice each toast into three equal breadsticks. Garnish with chopped cilantro if desired.

Grill 'em, horns!
