Vegetable Bread Baskets


6 bread slices,2tbs.0il, 1/4cup green and red bell-peppers (chopped finely), 1/4cup corn, 1/2 cup onions (chopped finely), 1/2 cup mushrooms(chopped finely), 1 cup mixed cheese, 4 tbsp margarine(melted), 1/2 cup green chutney, salt to taste,black pepper to taste.

Cut the edges of the bread and keep aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees, spray cooking spray on a muffin pan, then place each bread slice in the muffin cups. Shape them to form like a basket. You can even flatten them a bit using a rolling pin. Bake for 10-15 should just become hard and take the shape of a basket.Take a pan, add 1 tbsp olive or cooking oil, and saute the onions,corn and bell peppers until a bit tender. Add the chopped mushrooms, season with some salt, pepper and cook a little more.Now take each bread basket, spread some green chutney with a knife, then add a spoonful of the mixture to it, then spread the cheese on the top. Lightly brush the 4 corners of the basket with melted margarine so they don't get burnt.Transfer the cups back to the muffin pan, then bake at 200 degrees for about 7-8 minutes, just until the cheese melts. Now change the oven setting to Broil, and bake the baskets for another 1 minute.Remove from the oven, let them cool a bit and serve immediately.........................
It is little hard to get the shapes of baskets, I tried hard to get these shapes but couldn't get them perfectly.................................
