Toast — seems pretty simple, add some butter, maybe jam and you have a perfectly acceptable breakfast. Not so fast. Ever since “avocado toast” became a thing, we have been falling for this simple snack. You can literally put just about anything on top of toast from a savory soft poached egg to sweet wafer thin chocolate that melts as it sits on the warm bread.Raqueul Pelzel, author of the recently published cookbook Toast says to, “Think of [toast] as a sophisticated evolution of the sandwich and an upgrade from small bites like bruschetta and crostini: as good for breakfast as it is for dessert, as chic for company as it is simple for dinner for one.”
Basically, toasts work for any meal. So, we are sharing some of our favorite toast combinations to try for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that go beyond a simple smear of avocado or spread of jam. These toasts range from the sweet bananas with rich chocolate-hazelnut spreads to savory goat cheese with briny, smoky salmon.
