Spiced Mascarpone Cheese ~ A dip and a Sandwich

Trying out different sandwiches has become like an obsession to me these days. What else do we need other than a satisfying look and a cheerful smile from the loved ones. And when you get a loving hug for the food you made, you will be literally over the moon. The gift for a cook is the happiness that he witnesses when his food is served around the table.
All women put in their heart and soul when they cook for their huss. They say "The Best way to a man's heart is through his stomach" and it holds true in every household. It needn't be a feast but even a simple cheese sandwich will make him grin. I realised this when I made this sandwich for the huss and when I got the broadest grin ever.
Since I had made only a small batch of mascarpone cheese, I was not able to use it to make tiramisu so utilised it to make a spread which could be used as a dip also.

~*What U Need*~
Mascarpone Cheese - 3 tbsp
Chilli flakes - 1 tsp
Oregano - 1/2 tsp
Pepper - to taste
Salt - to taste

Wheat/White bread slices - 2
Ghee/Oil - to toast

How I Made it:
Mix together mascarpone cheese, chilli flakes and oregano till silky and smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Spread this on a slice of bread and close with another bread slice. Toast the sandwich till brown on both sides.

Serve with a cup of hot milk or you can also serve this spread as a dip for nachos or chips or baked tortilla chips.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
