Cheesy nutty delight--grilled in heaven

I love weekends. They are a time when you can try something special and easy for a snack type lunch. Try this cheesy nutty delight.
Toast some bread---any sort---brown, white, in between, you choose.
Turn the grill on. I use one of those bench-top ovens--- they use less energy.
Now, place some peanuts and cheese in a food processor.  Now, this is where you can use your imagination. For those who have none--- keep it simple.
You can use the roasted peanut variety of you want a salty addition. I prefer to use raw peanuts and then add the salt later to taste. If you want ‘heat,’ add chilli flakes. Oh, go one--- try herbs and any other spices if you want but for the plain Janes—stick to the programme.
Spread the mixture from the food processor over the lightly toasted bread and grill. I hope I don’t have to tell you how to do that!
When the toasted cheesy/nutty delights turn brown and bubbly, take them out. This is when you add the salt of you want.
PS. Try aging finely sliced onion to the mixture after it has been ‘processed.’
ENJOY! I was going to take a picture, but I ate them too quickly. (Perdy, my Jack Russell and star of my latest book—‘Talk To Me’, just licked the mixture off the toast).
