How do you dress your yogurt?

Let's say you partake in some cold yogurt for breakfast (or a snack), do you top it with anything?

Aside from the tried-and-true stuff like fruit, granola or cereal (or nuts), and jams, jellies and curds maybe, is there anything that's "uniquely you" that you dress your yogurt with?

Chocolate or carob chips, maybe?

Crushed potato chips perhaps?

Graham crackers or wafer cookies?

Wheat Thins or Ritz Crackers?

Peanut Butter?

How about wasabi peas or Boston Baked Beans?

Love to hear your thoughts.

  1. I enjoy a few healthy dashes of cinnamon in plain yogurt. I'd never thought of crushed potato chips, but now that you suggested it, I'm oddly curious.

    1. that's an easy answer for me. but reading your critique it's pretty typical probably.
      nothing fancy here or out of the ordinary.

      I top it now (since reading the recipe) with
      Kate's Muesli.

      I buy all the flavors we like in Greek yogurt as we
      recently discovered WinCo while on our drive up to
      Lake Almanor. we had to stop to load up on our food supplies for a week.
      who knew this store was so much fun?i now buy all the ingreds for Kate's Muesli
      there at WinCo in the bulk section and make at home.
      WinCo has many many many bulk bins like the smaller store Sprouts.

      so in a cereal bowl goes the yogurt and a measured bag of muesli over all stir and enjoy.

      1. For breakfast, it just gets stirred into the daily muesli, instead of milk

        As a snack, it's drizzled with honey and scattered with pistachios and dried apricots.

            1. Since I can no longer afford designer duds, I dress mine in thrift store finds.

              But my kids love their yogurt-rice with crushed potato chips. I don't like that very much, I prefer my yogurt-rice with lemon pickle.

              Plain yogurt I like to add leftover sabzi or dal, or whatever else is leftover, or if nothing else, I stir in a dollop of pickle, whatever I find: mango, lemon, chilli, etc. Definitely prefer savory to sweet.

                I don't much care for the dessert-style yogurts that are popularly consumed here either. The closest I'll get to sweet yogurt is topping mine with mint leaves, but I'll also probably toss in some jalapeno, lemon and salted pistachios if I head in that direction.

                More likely if I want a quick breakfast, I'll slather yogurt onto bread and shower it with a handful of za'atar, maybe a drizzle of olive oil and head out the door. Yogurt and pickle is also good. Sometimes I'll use garlic or mango pickle, but I really love crunchy bread, yogurt and pickled eggplants (makdous). Between the walnuts and spicy peppers stuffed into the eggplant, the richness of the yogurt and the doughy bread, there's a lot to love.
