Peppery Paneer Toast

High school years are hectic and the workload is unreal. Food somehow takes the lowest priority. A filling snack on a busy day goes a long way. When I made this toast for the first time it disappeared very quickly. My daughter told me to feel free to make it any time.

Since then I have made it a couple times for her and her teenage friends. Every time it is a big hit. In fact it is so good, you could serve it as an appetizer at an adult dinner party or put it on the menu for a tea party. The cheesy toast and sweet peppers are sure to please even little children.

You will need
1/3 tbsp. butter
1/8 onion, diced
1/4 red bell pepper, finely diced
3.5 oz. paneer, diced
3/4 cup basic white sauce
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices whole grain wheat bread
1/2 cup shredded cheese (any)

Preheat oven to 375 F. Melt the butter in a pan on medium heat. Add the onion and saute for a few minutes. Then add the red bell pepper and saute together for a couple minutes. Add the paneer and saute for about 3-4 minutes.

Add the white sauce and mix together. Check taste and add salt and pepper if needed. Turn off heat.

Place the slices of bread in a single layer on a baking sheet and heat in the oven for about 4 minutes. Divide the paneer mixture into four parts and spread each part on a slice of bread. Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of each slice.

Put the baking sheet back in the oven for about 10 minutes or until cheese is just melted. Cut into triangles and serve hot.

Note: The paneer mixture can be made a few hours ahead of time. When needed simply put it on the bread with cheese and bake.
