Remember Sizzler, the fun family restaurant where you could get all you could eat, assuming you wanted to eat anything they had? Many people probably have fond memories of hoeing down at the local Sizzler, although the fact that the chain suffered such a decline that there are now only nine Sizzlers left in the country suggests even more people have fond memories of driving past one and eating somewhere else.
But there was always one good reason to duck into a Sizzler: its incredibly moreish cheese toast. Those nine remaining outlets probably owe their continued existence to this delicious treat and the dark secret of its creation, jealously guarded by Sizzler headquarters.
So it’s bad news for the Final Nine that the secret of Sizzler cheese toast has now been set loose upon the world wide web. Home cook “Sherrie” posted her recipe for the greasy beauty on the Facebook group Mums Who Cook & Bake, and it quickly went viral, resulting in an explosive public reaction very similar to that which followed Elaine’s revelation of the Soup Nazi’s recipes on Seinfeld.
- Thick sliced white bread
- Butter (at room temperature) or margarine
- Can of Kraft Parmesan Cheese
How to Make Sizzler Toast
- Combine equal amounts of butter or margarine with parmesan and mix to create a paste.
- Using a knife, spread the parmesan and butter/margarine paste on one side of your bread.
- Pan-fry the bread paste-side down in a frying pan over a medium heat and place a lid or flat plate over the bread so it can steam while cooking. Cook until golden brown and serve.
Believe it or not, the recipe for Sizzler toast is actually fairly simple, consisting mainly of butter, bread, and cheese slapped together and fried. Kind of surprising that it hasn’t come out before now, really: maybe Sizzler bigwigs were suppressing it.
Whatever the case, the secret’s out now, and you can make your own Sizzler cheese toast in the comfort of your home – no more tiring trips to Sizzler for you!
