The humble toasted I miss them since I've been trying to reduce the wheat in my diet. I don't think I realised how much I enjoyed bread until I started this venture. My Dad is a professional baker and my Mum a breadaholic so I guess it was written into my DNA..thanks guys. lol. There is something comforting about bread...and all the wonderful many ways of eating it. Isn't there?

Recently I've been very lucky and found a GF bread loaf in my local supermarket. It is a lentil flour based bread and it looks like wheat bread, feels like wheat bread and can be used as wheat bread can be long as you are very gentle with And if you try and ignore the strange coating you get on your teeth after eating could almost maybe believe it's wheat bread. But for now it's the closest I can get...but the one way I hadn't tried it, was in the humble toastie.

As I am still craving olives I knew I wanted an olive based toastie for brunch today. I had some white cheddar style Cheezly soy cheese in the fridge and the toastie was set from there.

A comforting brunch...with a side order of sunshine..

Black Olive & Cheese Toasties Makes 1

2 slices of GF or bread of your choice
black olives, stoned and sliced
white cheddar style cheezly, thinly sliced (wafer

Heat a sandwich toaster or skillet. Place the slices of cheese on one slice of bread, scatter the sliced olives over the cheese and then place the other slice on top.

Then place the sandwich in the toaster or skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown on both sides.

Then It's really not a recipe, is it? lol.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Sunday is a fantastic day....
