My Guilty Pleasure: Cheetos on Toast


I am not always chefy. Especially when I just got home from a busy night shift. I am tired, sleepy and hungry. I just want some food and am off to bed. And this is my guilty pleasure way of making some food. I know it is super unhealthy, but it tastes yummilicious every single time.


 

Ingredients:

(Serve 1)

  • Cheetos Regular / Flamin' Hot, A Generous Handful

  • Unsalted Butter, For Spreading

  • Kewpie Mayo, For Spreading

  • Nori Flakes, A Pinch (Optional)

  • Shichimi Togarashi, A Pinch (Optional)

  • Maple Syrup, A Drizzle (Optional)

  • Dried Parsley, (Optional)

 

Equipment:

  • Cast Iron Skillet / Pan

 

Directions:

  1. Mash Cheetos either with a potato masher or pound them in a mortar and pestle.

  2. *You can also put the Cheetos in a zip lock bag and roll them into pieces with a rolling pin.*

  3. Don't take it too far. We want them to be coarsely sized.

  4. Spread some butter onto the bread.

  5. Toast in the skillet until crispy brown at the bottom.

  6. Spread a thin layer of kewpie mayo onto the toasted side of the bread.

  7. Dip the mayo side down toast into the Cheetos pieces.

  8. Transfer onto a serving plate and sprinkle more Cheetos over the top.

  9. Use whatever toppings you desired. If it is regular, I would like to top it with some nori flakes and shichimi togarashi.

  10. If it is flamin' hot, I would drizzle some maple syrup over the top and sprinkle some dried parsley.

  11. Serve immediately.


Flamin' Hot Cheetos are flamin' hot for a reason...
