Cheesy Bread Cigars

 
I've got this amazing finger food for you! You'll laugh reading the recipe. Only because, its not exactly a recipe! :-D No exact measurements, no proper instructions! And yet, you can produce this awesomely awesome Bread Cigars in under 10 minutes. And yes, I came up with it myself! ;-)

Read on to find out...
(Print this (!)Recipe)
Ingredients
Bread Slices
Butter  - 2-3 tablespoons
Sauce / Spread - your choice. (I used my aromatic Garlic Chutney)
Mixed Herbs - as required (Oregano, thyme, chili flakes etc)
Mozzarella Cheese - As much as you want! (Use any cheese. preferably, one that melts)
Water - a few drops per bread
Method
Pre heat oven at 180C / 350F
1. Remove the corners of the bread slices
2. With your hands, sprinkle 2-3 drops of water on the slice and press well to ensure the entire slice is moist.

3. Use a rolling pin & roll the bread nice & thin (this happens only when the bread is moist)

4. Apply the butter and sauce/spread/chutney

5. Sprinkle the mixed herbs on top of it.

6. Grate some cheese on top

7. Very gently, roll the bread like a cigar. The rolling is easier and bread doesn't break when it is moist. So if you feel the bread is going to tear apart while rolling, wet you fingers and press the bread.

8. You can secure the roll with the help of a toothpick. I just sealed the end with a drop of water

9. Arrange on a greased & lined baking tray.

10. Drizzle some melted butter and/or cheese on top

11. Bake at preheated oven for 5 minutes on one side and another 5 minutes on the other side.

12. Serve with chips & your favorite dip.


ENJOY!!!!
Notes:
> Everything in the recipe, except bread is optional an can be substituted! :-D Sky is the limit.
> Its important not to add a lot of water to the bread or it gets sticky
> Oven timings/temperatures vary. Monitor your bread. Bake till cheese melts & both sides are crispy
> 99% of the people have a rolling pin. If you don't just take a heavy utensil & gently beat the bread to make it flatter. It helps the bread to roll nicely.
Verdict:
It was super crunchy, cheesy and amazing! Perfect appetizer for parties or for the evening snack! They also taste really good with soup. My garlic chutney gave these cigars a great flavor.
