300 Ways to enjoy toast

This link has 300 toast toppings.
I like the ideas of
- spread with peanut butter and drizzled with hot fudge
- butter, honey & walnuts
- apple pie filling, cheddar cheese & crushed red hot candies
- almond butter & dates
Not appealing to me
- spread with canned frosting
- garlic spray and applesauce
- Chef Boyardee Beefaroni and low fat small curd cottage cheese
- peanut butter & mayo
Not sure if these would be good or bad
- cheddar cheese & orange marmelade
- peanut butter and breakfast cereal like corn flakes
- goat cheese & jam
- peanut butter, hot apple sauce, whipped cream
Pretty funny link around the last few items called Breakfast with Jesus ... about people who find images of Jesus on the toast or pancakes. Should you be tempted by this type of item on eBay, just know there is a company that sells pans that will imprint a Jesus picture on your pancakes.
Once I ran out of butter and instead put olive oil on my toast. This is very yummy and with the right kind of bread (sesame or ciabatta) something i enjoy often. Also marrow spread on toast is delish. Other savory yum yums would include sauteed mushrooms or maybe a very juicy tomato with salt and EVOO. Like brushetta. (I know I spelled it wrong!)
i can vouch for the goat cheese and jam combo
melted sharp cheddar and jam (better yet, fig preserves)
tahini and pomegranate syrup
lemon curd and sliced strawberries
re: babette feasts
peanut butter and honey - my favorite!
I love butter and quince jam too... or just butter and honey.
whoever said bone marrow on toast, they serve it at Cragie St. Bistro and it is SO delicious... with just a bit of salt sprinkled on top.
I have yet to try peanut butter and pickles or peanut butters and bananas. I don't think I'd like the pickles, but a lot of people swear by it!
I must have tried about 3 dozen of these...just had brie on dark german toast this morning, in fact. Yum.
Some suggestions did not sound appetizing, though.
(especially anything ending in -ite).
I know brits like baked beans on toast, and though I love baked beans, it just didn't do anything for me.
If you can find real "HP Sauce", a thick brown sauce from England, try melting sharp cheddar on toast with a lashing of HP. It's the quickest, tastiest, toast you'll ever try!
I like this:
Take a slice of thick cut whole wheat toast, spread it with butter and a thin scraping of Marmite, then top with a nice, sharp Cheddar and broil it until the cheese is all melty. If tomatoes are in season, put a slice under the cheese before broiling. Delish.
Soft goat cheese with good jam or preserves is lovely; it gives a nice bit of tang with the sweet and fruity. Goat cheese with caramelized onions is wonderful, especially if you warm them first. I make a carmelized onion topping for crostini that includes some sugar and balsamic vinegar, and it's especially great with goat cheese on toast.
Ricotta with jam, apple butter, or a drizzle of honey is wonderful.
I prefer goat cheese, quark, fromage frais, or ricotta on toast to cream cheese any day. I also like cottage cheese piled on toast sometimes. For a while, I was getting this house-brand orange whole wheat bread at TJ's that had a great flavor and a bit of sweetness, and a pile of plain cottage cheese on that made a great breakfast.
Butter and and interesting honey are an ideal complement to a good cup of tea.
For savory, I like ajvar, a jarred red pepper-eggplant spread, sprinkled with grated Parmesan.
Melted cheddar topped with sliced nacho-style jalapeños. This is even better on toasted english muffin (does that count as toast?).
I love it! I would so go to a restaurant called "things on toast"!
And it makes me think of one of my favorite cookbooks - a small French tome simply called "Toasts". My favorite recipe from this cookbook involves whizzing toasted pine nuts, Cabrales blue cheese, and a splash of brandy, then smearing on toast. Yum!
--peanut butter, honey, and banana
--maple sugar spread
-- French's yellow mustard, brie, and good black forest ham
-- miracle whip, mashed hard boiled egg whites, salt & pepper
... Question that just sprung into my head: What's the dividing line between stuff on toast and an openface sandwich??
I thought Welsh Rarebit is the original melted cheese on toast.
When we went to a timeshare in Hawaii that didn't have a stove (but has a microwave and toaster), I did a cheese on toast by first toasting the bread, then put the sliced cheddar on top, and zap it in the microwave for 30 seconds or until the cheese melted. That way the bread was still crispy and not soggy.
Apricot jam with chunks of apricots and butter.
Butter and cream cheese
Salsa and cottage cheese
Mozzarella, parmesan, and marinara sauce
Pumpkin butter with chopped pecan pralines
Ricotta and cinnamon sugar
Egg toast with a thin layer of gravy and a topping of cranberry sauce, the jellied kind... this is a relative of the post-Turkey day sandwich consisting of egg bread buttered with turkey, maybe a thin layer of mashed potatoes maybe, a layer of cranberry sauce, the moist maker (a slice of egg bread soaked in gravy, more turkey, little more cranberry, buttered egg bread.
Peanut butter mixed with melted white chocolate and spread with raspberry or boysenberry preserves
"On a toasted Endlish Muffin I love fresh tomatoe and melted cheese," with a sprinkle of oregano! mmm....... Taste of Grandma's. Also, and this is so the best -- hot dog buns spread with butter, sprinkled heavily with canned parmesan cheese (I know! This is the only thing I use it for. *hides*), and toaster-ovened. Oh my.
bacon sandwiches on toasted bread with butter. my husband's a brit - otherwise, i'd never put bacon fat up against butter...but it tastes GREAT, it must be said. my husband likes beans on toast as some others have said.
