Toast 9 Ways

JillianAppies & Snacks, Breakfast, Dinner, Food, Lunch6 Comments

Toast has always been one of my daily staples. It’s great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and can even make a great appetizer for guests. It all depends on the way that you jazz it up. You can get as creative as you want and adjust anything depending on your taste buds. I have crafted up 9 of my favourite toasts, 9 different ways … there has to be at least ONE that you haven’t tried!!! Or are wanting to try?! Add any of the ingredients listed below in any order that suits you best and you won’t go wrong. Just make sure you toast the bread first, butter it and then you’ll be set!!! My all time fav is creamed peas on toast … what’s yours?

If you haven’t already noticed, almost every toast is buttered first and finished off with salt and pepper (this is the key!). What one are you going to try this weekend?? Better yet if you have any other toast ideas, share them in the comments below …

Happy Friday!

    Ahhh creamed peas on toast. One of my favs. Nothing fancy – no adds – just as is. My granny showed me how to make it. 🙂 My hubby thinks it is just disgusting looking. :0

    When I was young, we would have toast with icing sugar. Sounds gross, and probably not very healthy, but it’s actually really a yummy indulgence! Just make sure to butter the bread and sprinkle the icing sugar on when it’s right out of the toaster!

  • Toast with smashed avocado, drizzled with condensed milk. Yummy for breakfast ?
