7 Delicious Toast Toppings

Are you in a hurry to make breakfast but are tired of eating cheese on toast? It is very easy to dish up far more exciting toast treats for your family. I have experimented with some different and delicious toast toppings and would love to share them with you. 

Toast toppings are enhanced by using whole-wheat, rye, sourdough, or grain breads. These breads make a great change from your everyday whites and browns. Whole wheat bread is full of essential vitamins, minerals, and proteins. It also has complex carbs that keep you feeling fuller for longer and boost your energy levels. 

When toasting whole-wheat, rye, or grain breads, you may want to adjust your browning settings to be lower than normal. These breads are quite delicious warmed up and don’t need to be toasted to a crisp.

Rye Cheese Toast With Garlic

This is a great recipe that I found while surfing the net. You will need a counter top toaster oven that has a broil function. Take a look at the Hamilton Beach 4-Slice Countertop Toaster Oven with Bake Pan. It is an inexpensive device that has so many great features. The broil function radiates heat from above to cook your food. It is a great way to melt toast toppings. 

The recipe for this delicious toast treat includes cheddar cheese, sweet paprika, garlic powder or fresh garlic, and dill pickles. Choose rye bread for that extra exotic taste.

Mushrooms On Toast With Garlic And Thyme

Mushrooms do require some cooking time, but they are well worth the effort.

Wash your mushrooms well. Mince up some fresh garlic and thyme. Heat oil in a pan. I always use olive oil for its rich authentic flavor. Put in the mushrooms, garlic, and thyme. Spread the mushrooms into a single layer. Cook for about 5 minutes without stirring. Season with salt. Stir and cook for another 5 minutes until golden brown on all sides.

Toast your bread and butter well. Top with the mushrooms, season, and serve. This is a great idea for a quick supper when you don’t feel like slaving in the kitchen for hours. If your family is really hungry, serve your mushroom toast with bowls of piping hot soup.

Avocado Rose On Whole-Wheat Bread

Avocados are packed full of Vitamins and nutrients. They are ideal for vegetarian and vegan diets, and also offer a healthy alternative for meat-eaters.

This fabulous toast treat is loaded with avo. You need to get creative! Slice up your avo into thin slices, keeping them together and intact. Place the slices standing upright in a circular shape in the center of your toast. It is not too difficult and you end up with a fabulous design that looks like a rose.

Avocado is always enhanced by a drizzle of fresh lemon, salt and pepper. Make a mix of healthy seeds including chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, and sesame seeds. I always keep a supply of this mix in an airtight container. Sprinkle loads of seeds over the top and finish it off with a few edible rose petals.
