One of my (many) favorite breakfasts growing up was cheese toast. In our house most mornings, the words "cheese toast" were mentioned as often as "cereal" would be for most other families. Not only was it one of my favorite things to eat, but I also liked to make it myself. Though I didn't realize it at the time, this was probably one of my very first ventures into cooking. I used to love pulling the whole wheat bread out of the fridge and sprinkling on the cheese, then my mother would place the slices under the broiler for me. In less then 2 minutes I would have a high protein, high carbohydrate breakfast that I would devour.

I don't know why I haven't made this recipe for Kenya and Chloe sooner. Watching Kenya sprinkling the cheese on his own slices of bread and popping them into the oven for him made me feel like my mom must have watching me "cook" for the first time. Maybe I never made it with him before now because cheese toast sounded too simple. Then again, kids certainly don't require complicated when it comes to their taste buds, so this is a perfect breakfast choice! Try it with your little ones.

    LOVE Cheesy toast, except we eat it for dinner on soup night. it's the only reason my boys both (finally) eat soup. without it they would have run from the table in protest. want another slice of toast? eat some soup bite first :)

    My most favorite breakfast growing up was toast with cheez-whiz spread, dipped into sweetened espresso. LOVE it.

      Really? That sounds horrifying but the stuff that sounds nasty is sometimes the tastiest (duck liver, anyone?).

    My husband's grandfather used to make these with him when he was a boy. Although they used Provolone. Now my hubby makes them all the time!
