- 8 Medium Slices (288g) Wholemeal Bread
- ½ Pack (200g) Cheddar Cheese (choose reduced fat whenever possible)
- 4 (340g) Tomatoes
Always check the label of each ingredient for allergy warnings.
Please note the cost per serving may now be slightly higher due to rising prices in supermarkets.
- Toast the bread on one side under a grill.
- Chop the tomatoes into thin slices and grate the cheese.
- Flip the bread over and sprinkle the cheese onto the untoasted side and top with slices of tomatoes.
- Place under the grill until the cheese is bubbling and starting to brown. Be careful not to burn the edges of the toast.
Time Saver Tips
Make this even faster – buy cheese that's already been grated or slice the cheese instead of grating.
Cost Saver Tips
You can try this with a variety of breads and other vegetables, such as finely chopped onions or spring onions.
Tips for Kids
Get the kids involved – let them help with the toppings on the toast. Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce or a sprinkle of herbs or chilli powder for a different taste.

Nutrition labels on the front of packaging
- Most of the big supermarkets and many food manufacturers display nutritional information on the front of pre-packed food.
- Front of pack nutrition labels provide information on the number of grams of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt and the amount of energy (in kJ and kcal) in a serving or portion of a recipe.
- The labels also include information about reference intakes (expressed as a percentage) which are guidelines about the approximate amount of particular nutrients and energy required for a healthy diet.
- The colour coding tells you at a glance if the food has high (red), medium (amber) or low (green) amounts of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt.
- The more greens on the label, the healthier the choice
- Amber means neither high nor low, so you can eat foods with all or mostly ambers on the label most of the time.
- Reds on the label means the food is high in that nutrient and these are the foods we should cut down on. Try to eat these foods less often and in small amounts.
Food shopping tips
If you’re trying to decide which product to choose, check to see if there's a nutrition label on the front of the pack. This will help you to quickly assess how your choices stack up. You will often find a mixture of red, amber and green colour coding for the nutrients. So when you're choosing between similar products, try to go for more greens and ambers and fewer reds if you want to make a healthier choice.
