How to Make my Mum’s Cheesey Toasts

You might have noticed that all of my recipes on the blog lately are my mum’s. That’s because my parents have a better kitchen to take photos for recipe blog posts AND my mum has a lot more delicious recipes (mostly with a Sri Lankan twist) up her sleeve than me.

So today I wanted to share another one of my mum’s recipes and one of my favourite comfort foods – mum’s cheesey toasts. They are different to most other cheese toasts because they have a light sprinkling of green chilli (which is the Sri Lankan twist). These toasts are warm, crunchy, salty and spicy…. The perfect snack to get over a bad day – or enhance a good one! And they are even better with mum’s Sri Lankan style condensed milk tea…but I’ll leave that recipe for another day!

For mum’s cheesey toasts you need:

  • Sourdough bread, sliced
  • Parmesan cheese, shaved
  • Tomato sauce, about a tablespoon in a cup
  • Green chilli, thinly sliced
  • Margarine


To make them you need to: 

  • Turn oven to 190 degrees Celsius, fan forced.
  • Spread some margarine on the sourdough slices
  • Pop slices of bread onto a baking tray covered with foil.
  • Lay the cheese on the bread. 


  • Sprinkle a few green chilli slices.
  • With a teaspoon, drizzle tomato sauce onto the cheese.


  • Pop in the oven for 15 minutes or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted! 
  • Take the cheesey toasts out of the oven and cool for about 5 minutes.

  1. That’s such a great idea to add chilly! And I love that all the ingredients are stuff I would normally find in my fridge 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
