There is nothing like a tasty toastie to fill a rumbling tummy. Anyone who knows me well, knows that I don’t just love cheese, I ADORE it! So here is my 3 cheese creation made with pide, which is a kind of flatbread that is very popular here in Turkey. It can fill one hungry tummy, or be split in half and served with coleslaw or a little salad for two! You can change the contents and add ham or tomatoes, depending on your preferences. Enjoy!
2 pieces of Pide bread (Flat bread)
A large spoon of soft cheese (Labne / Philadelphia)
A couple of slices of Goat’s cheese
A large handful of grated cheese (Cheddar or Kaşar)
A few slices of onion
A few slices of green pepper
Salt, Pepper, Oregano and some chilli flakes (for seasoning)
Firstly switch the toasting machine on to heat up.
Lay a piece of Pide, bottom side facing up, on the chopping board (or a plate) and spread the soft cheese on it.
Next, crumble the white Goat’s cheese over the top.
Now sprinkle the grated cheese over this.
Place the sliced onions and peppers on top, season, then place the second piece of Pide, bottom side down on the top.
Press down on it to flatten a little, then place in the toasting machine. I usually brush a little olive oil on the outside of the toast to make it crispy.
Once cooked, serve on its own or with a side of coleslaw or salad.
