This is how we make it in 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Make garlic butter:
Add salted butter, garlic, and chopped parsley or cilantro to a bowl. Mix everything well and keep it aside.
Step 2: Assemble:
Smear garlic butter on both sides of the bread slices. Top each slice with some freshly chopped chillies and fresh chopped garlic. Adding garlic is optional here. Then top each bread slice with a generous amount of cheese. Season with some salt and pepper as required. Sprinkle with chilli flakes.
Step 3A: Bake in the oven:
Preheat oven to 200°C (400°F) for 10 minutes. Line a baking tray with parchment paper, and arrange prepared bread slices on it. Place the baking tray on the top shelf, and broil for 1-2 minutes or until cheese melts and have golden spots on top. Make sure to keep an eye on toast while they are getting baked.
Alternatively, you can bake them in the middle rack for 2-3 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted and bread slices are crisp and toasted.
Step 3B: Cook in a griddle (pan):
To make these delicious chilli cheese toast on a skillet, pre-heat the skillet over low heat, then just place the prepared bread slices on the preheated skillet. Cover with the lid and cook until cheese is melted and the bottom is crispy.
