Parmesan cheese toasts

Old bread reincarnated into crunchy, peppery, cheesy treats. Perfect with a bowl of soup or plate of pasta.


  • Good quality bread (a few days old and hard is fine)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmiggiano-Reggiano cheese


  1. Cut bread into thick slices and lay out on baking sheet.
  2. Coarsely grate Parmiggiano-Reggiano cheese using big holes on a box grater.
  3. Drizzle olive oil over bread slices.
  4. Sprinkle bread with pepper.
  5. Top bread with generous amount of grated cheese.
  6. Put baking sheet under broiler on high until cheese is lightly browned. Watch carefully, as the toasts burn quickly after browning.
