  • Arrange the bread on a work surface. Divide the meat mixture among the bread slices and spread it roughly into a 3-inch square on each slice. Brush lightly with sesame oil and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Trim the bread into 3-inch squares, then cut each square into quarters. Transfer to the baking sheet.

  • Bake for 10 minutes, until the meat is cooked through. Turn on the broiler. Broil the toasts for 2 minutes, until lightly browned.

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, rice vinegar and the 1 teaspoon of sesame oil. Transfer the toasts to a platter and serve with the dipping sauce.
