Toast is just toast until you get crazy with the toppings.
We get super excited about food trends (like mason jar dining!) and fancy toast is another one we can’t stop talking about. The other day our co-worker was going on and on about her post-workout snack of toast, avocado, pepper and lemon juice. We had to politely tell her to stop because we were drooling and it wasn’t even close to lunch. The next obvious thing to do was search the web for the best of the best in toast creations so we could make our own and then get our co-worker back (who we love so much!) for not bringing us fancy toast and just talking about it—we have to keep things fair, right?
So, first things first! Fancy toast does not have to just be dressing up whole wheat slices. Size up your bread options. Fancy toast can be made from sourdough, pitas, cornbread or naan. The next step to toasted goodness is to consider your adhesive options. The first thing that hits the toast is what keeps the elements together. This may be cream cheese, nut butter, bean purees or avocado spread. Part of the joy in fancy toast recipes is that the possibilities are endless.
