Breakfast Toast, 6 Ways

Published December 29, 2023

I’ve always eaten toast—who hasn’t?—and I’ve always put sweet and savory stuff on it. So I’m glad to see this “trend” now qualifies as true breakfast. It’s convenient and obviously much better for you than even the best store-bought sweets. Especially when you use whole grain bread, which I advocate.

A toaster is easiest and best when your additions are fine unheated, like yogurt and mashed avocado. But if you want to warm the topping, you’ve got to fire up the broiler or toaster oven: For the best texture, toast the bread on one side, turn it over, add whatever you like (not a ton, just a smear and maybe some fruit) then put it back under the heat to brown. Here are a few ideas, some simple and some more involved.
