Corn Cheese Toast

As Sweet Corn or Baby corn is Abhi's favorite vegetable, I try to include corn in as many dishes as possible and he enjoys too. Today I am featuring a recipe with corn which he enjoys as a morning breakfast or evening snack item. Here is the recipe for you...

Corn Cheese Toast

Whole Wheat Bread Slices - 2
Butter - 1 tbsp
Sweet Corn - 1/2 cup ( frozen)
Shredded Cheese - 1/4 cup
black pepper - 1 tsp


  1. Heat the Non stick pan.
  2. Apply the butter on one side of the bread on two slices. Toast it lightly in the pan ( on the butter side down)
  3. Thaw the corn in microwave or thaw them by placing in the water for 5 min.
  4. Add 1 tsp crushed black pepper and shredded cheese to the corn and mix it well.
  5. Place this corn mixture in the bread slice and top with another slice. 
  6. Press gently and toast it on two sides on the pan.
  7. Take it out from the pan and cut diagonally and serve it after 5 min ( allow it to cool inside).

Sit back and enjoy while your kiddos snack on this item....Oh Yeah! That is what I did today... :-)

Snack On until we meet here again

Belgian Hazelnut Spread and Weekly Breakfast Menu

I am one of those people who will be stand in the lines to try all the samples at the grocery stores looking for something new. Wait,wait, don't get me wrong. These 'sampler stalls' are very nice to get an idea of the product  with out buying and not to get disappoint after buying it when you don't end up liking it. As we are big fans of Costco, some times their samplers are huge enough to skip the breakfast. ;-) While I miss those days, here Hypercity comes to my rescue, when i saw 'sampler stalls' at this place. So One morning this Hazelnut spread got my eye, as I am not a huge fan of chocolate or sweets, reluctantly I have tried this sample hoping this chocolate spread does not taste like 'Chocolaty'. and No I did not, it is so Natural ( no artificial flavors) and it tasted so delicious. With out any thought it has been added to my grocery cart, and VJ gave me that looks which conveys, 'For People like me only the sampler stalls meant for. They make you try and make you buy' :-)

So Next day I want to see my buy in action, I spread this on the milk bread and served the kiddos, they simply loved it. That evening I heard Abhi talking to his friend saying ' My mom, got this spread you know, it is so yummy.. you should try this too... ' ( his exact words with his big eyes that expresses all his liking about this spread). Couldn't ask more when my kiddos love the new things that I always try and buy. :-)

With that Let me share my Weekly Breakfast Menu planner here... ( As I am in India now, I am including all the tropical fruits in their breakfast and kids are enjoying new kind of fruits).
