Food Porn Friday – Episode 7: Toast

There is nothing quicker and easier to make than toast. Providing you have a toaster. You might think of toast as being simple, too boring for brunch. You’d be wrong.

21 Toast Ideas from Buzzfeed

Here are some of my top toast favourites:

1) Hot Buttered Toast

I love butter. I love being able to taste the butter. I love when you bite into buttered toast and see your teethmarks. I sometimes wait for toast to go colder before buttering it so that the butter doesn’t melt into it and you can see it there, a centimetre thick. Bread comes secondary to butter in this (and if you’re going to try and give me margarine you can back away now), but obviously the more interesting the bread the better.

2) Toast with Cream Cheese and Smoked Salmon

The traditional bagel topping is perfect on toast too, if that wasn’t obvious. And I feel like the more regular shape of toast makes it easier to get the balance between cream cheese and salmon just perfect. I think this works best with a strong, bread-y bread – a thick sliced sourdough or rye bread works great.

3) Toast with avocado and bacon

Creamy rich avocado pairs perfectly with crispy, salty bacon for a filling brunch that feels oh so healthy. This recipe from The Londoner adds tomatoes to the mix, and is definitely one I have to try.

4) Toast with banana and Nutella

When I was at uni, Banana and Nutella toasties were a regular midnight snack for me, but if you don’t have a toasted sandwich maker, it couldn’t be simpler. Even if it is chocolate-y and delicious, it’s still one of your five a day!

Tell me your toast toppings – and I’ll see you again next week!

    Hot toast with butter, a teaspoon shake of fine sugar and a sprinkle of Saigon cinnamon. My other fav: thin crispy toast with fig spread, Manchego cheese and a drizzle of first cold press, extra virgin olive oil. Of course, Dan’s is hot multi-grain with butter and peanut butter. We love your blog, Hattie! Except that is makes us hungry… hmmm, donuts, toast, waffles with chicken. Seattle’s forbidden foods.
