Cheesy Onion Topping

Again something I had been waiting for my sister’s visit for giving it a try as she is fond of cheese and kids by default are fond of cheese.

I tried this cheesy onion topping on a baguette bread, but it would equally well with any other suitable bread.


8 slices of bread (I used baguette bread),
1 medium sized onion (chopped),
75 grams of shredded cheddar cheese,
1 tbsp olive oil,
1 ½ tbsp of refined flour,
150 ml of milk
1 ½ tbsp butter
1 tsp mustard sauce,


Heat olive oil and tip in the chopped onion. Cook it till soft. Keep aside.

Heat the butter and add the flour once the butter starts foaming. Stir constantly till it is well mixed, now add the milk and cook on a low flame for two minutes.

Remove from heat and mix in the cooked onions, cheese and mustard sauce.

Toast the bread till golden and spread the cheesy onion topping on the bread. Cook it in a pre-heated oven at 200oC for about 15 minutes or grill until bubbling.

Serve it topped with chilli flakes or mixed dried herbs.
