The miracle of toast with its infinite possibilities! What's your favourite?

My sweetie is a big fan of toast for breakfast.

Me, I didn't care so much for it (his repertoire is pretty much peanut butter, or jam - which is pretty boring if you ask me) until I went to a church bake sale and bought a jar of lemon butter just because I felt like I had to buy *something*.

So now, I'm addicted too! I've made lemon butter, orange butter, lime butter... just found a recipe for maple butter which is so simple, yet divine.

Between these and avocado, my toast repertoire is expanding... but I'd like to know what your favourites are, even if it sounds insanely simple to you - it might be something that I or someone else hadn't thought of or had forgotten about.

Thanks in advance for sharing :)

  1. For breakfast:
    First, a whole piece of artisan buttered toast.
    Sprinkle with parmesean
    Stack a fried egg onto that,
    Drizzle with a basil+EVOO+small bit of garlic pistou,
    Finish with a few drops of truffle oil (white or black, they're both good).

      1. Creamed tuna, creamed mushrooms over toast!

        1. Toast, naked, is good.

          Toast with honey is very good.

          Toast with roasted garlic is even better.

          But toast with roasted garlic and guacamole is most outstanding.

          1. butter and bitter orange marmalade.
            butter and braunschweiger
            butter and poached egg

                    I was just teasing a bit. I also like braunschweiger on buttered rye toast, with some sliced onion.
