I couldn't believe that nobody had posted the recipe for mousetraps when I was looking for cheese on toast variations. Here is the downunder favourite.

Top Review by Emmylou Morey Clark

Absolutely delicious! I love Marmite on toast, and the addition of cheese made a very tasty alternative. Extremely quick and easy to make for a snack or light lunch.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slice bread, suitable for toasting
  • yeast extract, eg marmite, vegemite
  • cheese, eg cheddar


  1. Oven grill setting at 400°F.
  2. Toast the bread on both sides under the grill/broiler or alternatively pop them in the toaster to save time.
  3. The former does taste better.
  4. Spread the toast on one side only with a thin layer of the yeast extract.
  5. Arrange on baking tray.
  6. Grate or slice enough cheese to cover the bread well.
  7. Pop under the grill until the cheese is melted.
  8. Remove from oven and cut bread slices into triangles.
