  4. Add some meat/fish/eggs and veggie toppings

For a crunchier outside, spread a little butter or olive oil on the outside of the bread before toasting.

Try using a mountain bread wrap or tortilla instead to make a toasted wrap or quesadilla.

This recipe is great for using up any leftovers in the fridge.
