Ingredients

1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
2 tbsp diet margarine
1 whole garlic clove, or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp butter
5 slice texas toast bread
1 dash cooking oil spray
1 dash paprika, to taste (optional)

Preparation

Process shredded Parmesan cheese into smaller pieces in small food processor, put in shallow container and set aside.

Put the diet margarine in small bowl and add garlic. Melt the butter in microwave (or stove), and add to margarine/garlic mixture. Stir well. Spread some of the mixture on one side of each slice of the Texas toast bread. Press the buttered side of the bread down into the bowl of Parmesan cheese. Press gently to coat surface with the cheese.

Heat nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat. Spray buttered side of bread lightly with nonstick cooking spray and lay bread buttered side down in the pan. Spray top of bread with nonstick cooking spray. If you can fit two slices of bread in the pan, repeat with other slice.

After bottom sides are browned, about 1 minute, flip slices over with spatula and let other sides brown. Remove slices from pan. Sprinkle lightly with paprika to taste, if desired. Repeat steps with remaining bread.
