    Best base to melt cheese on in a toaster oven?

    Primal Fuel
    My mom really wants to try go wheat free, but so far she can't fathom letting go off the 2 slices of bread with melted cheese up top that she does in her toaster oven each morning with coffee. I suggested she uses apples as the base.

    Anyone has other good, dry base for a breakfast cheese melt?

    I doubt she'd go for portabellos, since they are expensive and she won't interpret them as a breakfast food.

    Faleo breads are out, since she is not exactly a baker and will not buy super expensive rice flour etc.

    Why put the cheese ON anything? You could grate it, put it into a ramekin and melt it either in an oven, or a microwave. Then scoop the hot gooey cheese up with sticks of cucumber, celery, apple etc - crudités. I love it like that....

    It's a toaster oven thing. I guess she likes how it browns up, and that it can be done without dishes to wash in a TO.
    She also decided to try simple slices of cheese. Keeping fingers crossed.

    Pears are delicious with cheese too. What about on top of some ham? Baked inside a tomato?

    Now I want cheese...

    I make cheese chips. Shred about a 1/2 cup of cheddar or parmesean cheese, spread on a microwave safe saucer and microwave for a minute and a half to two minutes. It should start to brown around the edges and lose the "wet" look. You can also make them in the oven. Place about 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese on a parchment lined pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes or until crispy.

    This will work in a toaster oven too. She can use a sheet or cut pieces of tin foil / aluminum foil -- keep the cheese a bit thin, then she can peel it off the tin foil but just throw that away. No muss no cleaning.

    Good luck!

    Goats cheese, sundried tomatoes and olive oil?

    A burger?
