Herb Cheese Bread Slices, the perfect savoury accompaniment to your next main meal, or just a quick crunchy snack because you can! (Like when I took these photos - if you look closely at the second slice from the left in the bottom photo...
...you can see where I took a bite before I rearranged for the next shot! I only realised when I looked at the finished photos that I didn't hide it very well!)
What can I say - they tasted good! Sweet basil combined with savoury sun-dried tomato and parmesan, all crisped up in the oven. Yum ?
What's your favourite cheese toast combo?
