What are you putting on Toast?

The usual morning 'butter and jelly toast' has got me bored. This morning i topped my toast with sliced up avocado, sea salt and lime juice. It was really tasty. What other kinds of things are people putting on their toast??

  1. I've been liking liverwurst and onions lately. Whipped cream cheese and minced, pickled habaneros are good too.

      I'm thinking the liverwurst, onions, cream cheese and habaneros all together right?

        I'm afraid I have yet to try 'em all on a single slice. Truth is, a recent trip to a favorite deli resulted in my having over-acquired both the goose and calves' liver "pates" that they make. Consequently, the 'wurst left lunch and became breakfast. Cream cheese and chiles is more of an "old standby" - "I started out on [cherry peppers], but soon hit the harder stuff."

        I'm glad you started this thread. Toast is not a trend, toast is a treat. After all, it's a blank canvas of warm, crunchy bread.

        And bread. Well . . .

        Bread, begging the pardon of the gluten-free gourmets and the low-carb lifestylers, is beauty. Bread is the source of life - everyday and everlasting. It is feast and fodder for poets, philosophers, and priests - proletariat, politicians, and prosperous. It is synonymous with both food and money; used to celebrate faith, family, and friendship.

        Moreover, bread is one of those wonderful goodies that provides in scrumptious stages.* You have the glory that is the "tear off a chunk while it's still kinda warm" of a fresh loaf. Then, the next-day magic of toast. Finally, the "kick save and a beaut" of crunchy, cubed croutons or the humble, protein extender of ground crumbs.

        (For what its worth, I went with a slice of emmenthaler on toasted rye this morning.)

        *Turkey is another "stage food"; providing a tasty source of, in order, supper, sandwich, salad, and stock.

          Toast is a treat! This morning I did a thin layer of dijon on rye. Then a small amount of cream cheese. then some pieces of smoked trout. It made me really happy.
          I love your description of the stages of bread. It's like life!

    2. Right now I'm doing pb and speculoos spread.

          that sounds really good. I'm definitely thinking savory all the way! are you making or buying the mousse?

          1. re: helmut fig newton

            Buying it, but I'm probably going to start making it in the near future. I just have a really good source for it and it'll probably take a few tries before I get it right.

        2. Schmear PB first thing in the morning keeps me going for hours.

          1. I tried plain avocado, but I like the idea of using salt & lime with it.
            I had fresh garlic butter toast yesterday, but it gives me heartburn. :)
            And since I have a lot of clotted cream left over from a tea I just did, I've been eating toast & cream.

              Avocado, chili powder, cumin, s & p, red pepper flakes and then top it off with a runny egg. Heavenly. :)
