A whole some and alluring bread delight, which can be served as a starter before lunch or dinner, or as a snack. Bread cups contain loads of corn and cottage cheese, which are high in calcium and protein,  both very essential for Vegetarians. And this is a very appealing way to make the kids eat these cute cups, without them realizing how much nutrition they have!!!

* You can let your imagination run riot, as far as the filling is concerned. This filling can be called two-in-one, because, it can be  used to make grilled sandwich too.
* You can fill it with some pasta sauce, then fill raw bell peppers, corn, a spinach leaf, olives and jalapenos, top with mozzarella cheese, and here come your Bread  Pizza cups!!!
*Regular potato & mixed veg filling can be made and used too.
* You can fill the cups with some sauteed cabbage, carrots and bell peppers, enhance the taste  by soy sauce and chilli sauce, top them with some cooked macaroni, sprinkle some cheese.....and lo! here are your Chinese Bread  Cups!!!
* Fill your cups with some sprouts, channa, a piece of boiled aloo/potato, top with cheese, bake, and then drizzle some green and sweet chutneys, and here are your Bread Chat Cups!!!
* You can use any kind of cheese, mozzarella or even cheese slices can be cut into small pieces and topped.
* The color of the cups is obviously not golden, since these are whole wheat slices. If you make them with white bread slices, then the color will be beautiful.....but we all know...what is appealing to the eyes is not must be healthy...must be appealing to our health.......
