Our next recipe is by Gordon Ramsay, which can be heaven for cheese lovers because of the inclusion of three types of cheese.
The dish is also time-saving and a speedy way to save yourself from hunger as it takes only ten minutes to get ready.

It is unique because it contains a secret and prize ingredient- cauliflower. No one would imagine adding the blandest vegetable in their recipes, but he is Gordon Ramsay. And not only this, this bland vegetable suddenly transforms into the luxurious flavor of cheese on toast.

- Cream cheese
- Olive oil to spray
You can watch Gordon’s ‘Under 10 Minutes’ Youtube series to understand the detailed procedure to make the ultimate cheese on toast.
Which is better- The Viral Viking Toast or the Ultimate cheese in toast?
The cauliflower in Ramsay’s toast made the topping far chunkier than the Viking Toast’s, but this did not make it any less unappealing. However, this toast was about indulgence, and for cheese lovers, it was worth it, especially with the parmesan cheese.
The ultimate cheese on toast is not as healthy as the Viking toast due to the extra calories, but it sure tasted yummy better than the TikTok viral toast.
Within ten minutes, Gordon’s toast was not as crisp as the Viking toast, so those who love crispiness must try the Viking toast.
The topping of cauliflower may make you struggle a little to stuff the high slice into your mouth, but the flavor will sing and dance on your tongue once you push it into the mouth. The addition of paprika and mustard adds luxurious flavor to the veggie bacon and cauliflower, tasting tangy, which the Viking toast lacks.
However, the viral toast is a serious upgrade from the standard sliced cheese on toast, and the extra ingredients completely elevate the taste. The creamy cheese, onion flavor, and Welsh Rarebit taste will do their magic on your tongue. However, when it comes to the ultimate cheese on toast, it is a satisfying lunchtime treat for your stomach, not so for your diet and health.
The quick little recipe of Viking Toast uses reduced-fat cheese and feels less heavy with more energy to face the rest of the day.
