  • 24 slice bread, white loaf, edges removed

2. Spread each bread with margarine. Fit into muffin pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 5 minutes. Fill each bread "cup" with 1-2 tablespoons of sautéed mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for another 3 minutes or until cheese melts.

Lusog Notes

This recipe is a source of iron and vitamin B1. Iron is needed for the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of the body. Vitamin B1 helps the body convert food to energy.

Chef's Tip

Recreate this recipe without an oven by using a toaster oven or turbo broiler. If the bread browns too quickly, cover the pan with a sheet of aluminum foil then fold the sides into the sides of the pan to secure.
