On the Menu: Fancy Toast

The latest trend to hit the food scene is toast. Fancy toast made with delicious bread and topped with all sorts of yummy toppings. It is a simple meal but the sum of its parts makes it delicious. There is something to be said about freshly baked bread smeared with your favorite topping. For those of us in San Francisco, we have The Mill to hit up when we are in the market for some fancy toast, but if want to try it at home, here are some combinations for delicious, easy toast that works for breakfast, lunch and maybe even dinner.


I don’t know about you, but when I was growing up, my afternoon snack was homemade cinnamon toast. A snack made up of margarine mixed with granulated sugar and cinnamon and smeared on a piece of white bread. I would toast my bread for a couple minutes and out came the most perfect after school snack. I can still remember that smell and that taste.


This is the grown up version of that toast. I have taken some freshly baked bread from a local bakery, toasted thick slices, smeared it with ricotta cheese and topped it with all different toppings. The combinations showed here are banana, pecan and maple syrup, strawberries with fresh mint, blueberries with toasted pumpkins seeds, and pistachios, cinnamon and honey. The beauty about toast is that you can top it with anything you want. It is the simplest of meals but sometimes simple is the best. ~ Amanda
