No more longing for those slices of butter and cheese goodness-- make them at home in just a few minutes! Perfect for dunking in a big bowl of soup this fall and winter!
I'm all for a big handful of crackers in my soup, but there's just nothing quite like dunked bread. Especially when the bread is cheesy and buttery and tastes like it came from Sizzler. Remember Sizzler? Do they even still exist? It's been many moons since I've visited the magical land where onions rings, nachos, salads, and cheap steaks are plentiful and abundant but I haven't forgotten about their cheese toast and I'm going to share my quick recipe for making it today.

But first, cheese toast goes perfectly with soup and I had a chance to try @Campbell's new Slow Kettle Style Andouille Sausage Jambalaya Soup a few weeks back. This is one of Campbell’s new products and I'm not sure I've had a prepared soup that had so much flavor before. It had a bit of a bite and would definitely curb my craving for Jambalaya if I were to get the itch.
The tagline for this Slow Kettle Style line of soups is "Patience, not Preservatives" and not only is it clever, the flavors of real ingredients really shine through.
But this bowl of soup is looking pretty lonely, so let us now make some cheese bread for dunking. To recreate Sizzler's cheese toast you need 2 ingredients-- butter and cheese. Whowoulddathunk?
Mix that butter and cheese together and spread onto one slice of thick sliced bread. I think texas toast type bread makes it taste the most similar but any type of bread will work.
And then you just put the bread butter side down on a non-stick skillet and cook over medium-low heat until the cheese is golden brown and the bread is heated through.
A super simple side that goes great with a bowl of soup like one of Campbell's Slow Kettle Soups or whip one up on your own.
Sizzler Cheese Toast Copycat
- ¼ C softened salted butter
- ¼ C grated Italian Cheese blend parmesan, mozzarella, asiago, etc.
- 4 slices thick sliced bread like texas toast
- Combine butter and cheese in a small bowl.
- Spread on one side of the bread and cook buttered side down in a non-stick skillet over medium-low heat. Cook until cheese is golden and transfer to a plate. Cut and serve.
HI Heather....really looking forward to making this! Question: do we brown/toast the other side at all, or leave it I toasted (so to speak)...?

I am so tempted to see if there are any Sizzlers left, ha! I didn't have this there but I am craving it now. Especially with some of that jambalaya.
