367 Ways To Enjoy Toast

367 Ways To Enjoy Toast

By Mr Breakfast

Toast. Is there any comfort food easier to make? You pull it out of the toaster and plop on your favorite topping. Presto! Breakfast!

Let's face facts. The whole low-carb craze is playing itself out. (I'll expect to get some angry mail from low-carb fanatics for that statement.) The USDA recommends that everyday we eat 6 to 11 servings of bread, cereal, rice, pasta, and other foods containing grains, especially whole grains. Bread is not the enemy of a healthy body, if you select the right bread.

The American Dietetic Association recommends a minimum of three servings of whole grains per day and goes so far as to recommend whole-wheat toast with peanut butter as a quick and healthy breakfast option.

Ways To Enjoy Toast

At the Breakfast Institute, the research division of Mr Breakfast.com currently headquartered in my mind and several notebooks, we (I) suggest using whole-grain bread for all toast applications. For those of you who don't care for the harder-textured brown breads, take note that "white wheat bread" (made from a relatively new class of wheat called "hard white wheat") should begin to appear more regularly in your bread aisle over the next year.

I know what many of you are thinking... "Dude, get to the recipes." With that said? I now present you with... toast!
  1. Topped with butter (or a butter substitute)
  2. Topped with your favorite jam
  3. Topped with peanut butter
  4. Topped with butter and sprinkled with a 30/70 mixture of cinnamon and sugar
  5. Broken into bite sized pieces, placed in a bowl and topped with milk and sugar (known as milk toast)
  6. Topped with butter and honey (or just honey)
  7. Topped with gravy (as in Chipped Beef On Toast)
  8. Topped with Vegemite (A thick brown paste made mostly from yeast extract, most commonly used in Australia by spreading thinly on toast or sandwiches.) Breakfast lover J.G. wrote us to say, "Butter or a substitute must be used with Vegemite in nearly every case. It's too salty otherwise. My wife, who had no idea what the stuff was, thought it vile when she first tried it. After I gave her a slice of fresh bread well buttered and spread with a little Vegemite, she was hooked!"
  9. Topped with Marmite - the U.K. equivalent of Vegemite. Richard of Waipukurau, New Zealand wrote in to say, "I prefer my toast spread with Marmite (New Zealand Marmite, not UK Marmite. The UK version is much sweeter). On top of that I like several slices of avocado. On top of the avocado I like several slices of tomato. Freshly ground black pepper tops it off. Variations include an addition of grilled bacon or ham." Thanks Richard. Your comments on Marmite were dyno-mite!

Reese-Toast-Sandwich. MMMMMMM."

  87. Susan P. writes in to suggest sweet pickle and peanut butter on toast: "Peanut butter and pickle can be quite good if the peanut butter is of good quality, ie mostly just ground peanuts. The pickle cuts the richness of the peanuts. We loved this as kids, when we used to get government surplus foods, but usually with sweet pickle rather than dill. Homemade dill works better than storebought because the flavor is milder and less acidic."

You take UNtoasted bread, butter it, sprinkle with brown sugar, liberally, and put in a toaster oven until melted. It's sooooo yummy. My dad used to always eat it while watching, of course, the Lone Ranger. It's one of my fondest childhood memories." It doesn't really count as toast from a toaster, but we added it the list because Kellie warmed the cockles of our hearts with her cute story.
  96. Topped with Kalle's Kaviar - a pale pink fish-egg spread that comes in a toothpaste tube. This is actually a fairly popular product in Sweden. Kids like squeezing it out in squiggly lines on the bread. Those nutty Swedes!

Take a slice of sourdough, toast it, then butter it, put fresh tomatoes on it, and top it with sharp cheddar cheese. Pop in the toaster-oven on broil (or broiler if you don't have one) until cheese melts (about 2-4 minutes). Dee-licious - you won't believe it."

  124. Our Baltimore Breakfast Friend J.R.M. has two interesting ideas, "Hot Buttered Toast spread with Patum Peperium? (Patum Peperium? is a fermented & salted relish made from Anchovies) -- this is from the UK and is definitely an acquired taste... you have to like saltiness. This is also excellent topped with scrambled eggs."
  125. And the second idea from the internationally-inspired J.R.M.: "Hot Buttered Toast with Chocolate Vermicelli (also know as Chocolate Sprinkles or Chocolate Jimmies) -- this I learned to like in Holland and in Switzerland... the only two places that will serve you chocolate for breakfast without an apology. LOL!!"
  126. No foreigner to a great breafast, Pernille from Denmark says we should try a sort of Banana Split Toast: "Spread mashed banana on toast ? decorate with stripes of chocolate-syrup ? sprinkle shredded coconut on top.

  130. Our recent pen-pal from Sweden Kristan W. has a thing for fish: "(boiled) egg toast can't be mentioned without recommending egg and pickled herring. Slice the egg, then top the egg with thin slices of pickled herring." (also see #94).

Pilchards are small fatty saltwater fish found off the European Atlantic coast from Scandinavia to Portugal.

  138. Jean H. has taken two favorites to make one very interesting breakfast: "The best toast recipe is topped with Cheese Whiz and slices of fried spam!!! Not a good thing if you have a cholesterol problem, but once in a while it is great! Especially during a cold Green Bay WI morning!!!"
  139. Breakfast Lover Nisa writes, "I like boiled-egg and grape jelly on my toast."

  141. Barb C. needs your help! She writes, "I used to have a recipe for painter's toast. It was a mixture of frozen orange juice concentrate, butter and brown sugar that you painted on warm toast. I have lost the recipe. I wondered if you had heard of it."

  145. Toast-Lover Dawna R. has an idea you might relish: "Top a slice of whole wheat toast with slices of (not processed) cheddar cheese and sweet relish (or dill pickle slices)." If you're in a pickle because you have no pickles or relish, don't fret. Dawna included one more idea....

  166. Our pal Angela M. wrote in and said when she was in college "one of (her) British boyfriends" got her hooked on baked beans and cheese on toast. Angela prefers cheddar.

Check out this recipe.
  187. Here's wild idea from a breakfast lover named Nina, "One way I enjoy my toast is with bananas and shredded mozzarella cheese! Right after the toast comes out of the toaster, butter it and sprinkle the cheese on it. Then, top that with thinly sliced bananas."

Asha also likes toast spread with butter and sprinkled with colorful 100's and 1000's. 100's and 1000's are what Australians call sugar sprinkles. 100's are more like traditional sprinkles and 1000's are like tiny ball-type sprinkles. Suzie from Australia says her kids like their toast and 100s & 1000s with a little Nutella. Australians rock!
  191. Kharina S. from the U.K. is a toast gourmet. She "loves" her toast buttered with slices of cheddar cheese and orange marmalade.
