Ingredients

1 eggs size large
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated 70 g
3 drops Tabasco sauce
1 zucchini, coarsely grated 130 g
1/2 shallots, finely chopped 20 g
8 slices rye bread, lightly toasted 160 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Method

  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg lightly. Add the grated cheese, Tabasco sauce, salt and pepper, then mix well.
  3. Prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the shallot; coarsely grate the zucchini, then pat them dry using a towel, to remove the excess water.
  4. Add the vegetables to the bowl. Mix well then spread the mixture onto the bread slices.
  5. Put the slices on a baking sheet, then put the sheet under the broiler 7-10 cm from the heat. Cook until the slices are golden-brown on top. Serve immediately.

I'm all for trying new things and so I gave this a try even though I do not like zucchini. It was quick and super easy to make and it was delicious. Almost like a western omelet on top of bread. I think I will add a bit of parsley or oregano next time to just add a touch more flavor. Also happy I used Old Cheddar because the mild stuff would have been tasteless. Be sure to check it when you're broiling! I stepped away for two seconds and my element caught on fire...had to lower the temperature and cook them a little longer.

Nice light snack. The egg sunk through our toast which was surprising. We added some red pepper that we had left over in our fridge (probably 1/8 of a pepper) and it added some nice color to the topping. Of note, Lea & Perrins and no-name brand Worcestershire sauce are not vegetarian (they have anchovies), you can get Vegan varieties at organic food stores such as Planet Organic.
