Demanding days demand a quick post and a quick recipe that gives you a quick fix to perk up a boring day and a spicy treat to jazz you up. These bread crisps do just that. They are real quick to put together with ingredients that are all easily available at home. You can serve them on their own as finger foods or along with ketchup or a cheesy dip.
Bread slices – 2-3
Butter (melted) – 1 tbsp
Spices (as reqd) – I used red chilli powder and salt, you could use herbs too
Tomato Ketchup – 2 tsp
Lemon juice – a few drops
Note: Another interesting flavour could be finely grated cheese (esp parmesan) and dried herbs
Preheat oven to 180deg C
Cut bread into whatever shapes you want. I cut them into triangles and long fingers. You could use cookie cutters to make more interesting shapes
Apply melted butter on all the slices
Sprinkle a little amount of red chilli powder and salt on some slices
Apply a tiny quantity of lemon juice on some pieces
Spread tomato sauce on the others
Keep all the bread pieces on a baking tray and bake for 8 mins or longer till the bread becomes crisp. Take care not to brown them
Serve them as starters topped with finely chopped veggies or as spicy treats to go with your evening tea coffee or even as breakfast and enjoy this guilt-free snacking!
