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.
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)
Cast Iron Skillet / Pan
Mash Cheetos either with a potato masher or pound them in a mortar and pestle.
*You can also put the Cheetos in a zip lock bag and roll them into pieces with a rolling pin.*
Don't take it too far. We want them to be coarsely sized.
Spread some butter onto the bread.
Toast in the skillet until crispy brown at the bottom.
Spread a thin layer of kewpie mayo onto the toasted side of the bread.
Dip the mayo side down toast into the Cheetos pieces.
Transfer onto a serving plate and sprinkle more Cheetos over the top.
Use whatever toppings you desired. If it is regular, I would like to top it with some nori flakes and shichimi togarashi.
If it is flamin' hot, I would drizzle some maple syrup over the top and sprinkle some dried parsley.
Flamin' Hot Cheetos are flamin' hot for a reason...
