A pile of toast is a sight I cherish. It speaks of weekday family breakfasting, with freshly squeezed orange juice and swift hands reaching for a bread baton and whatever spread suits the mood for the day. Weekends are for leisure, pancakes and baked eggs…Wednesday is for toast. A pile of toast.
This morning I rose early to brown some bread for Ben and I, to get it all warm and toasty, making the crusts extra crusty and the spreads more likely to spread. Yeah, I just popped it in the toaster but yeah it’s a pretty neat invention. I’m always up for an early toasting call. Especially when it involves making a pile of food. You see, I like to play with my food, it’s one of my most favourite past times. And four slices is more fun to stack than one or two.
Today it was ricotta with black tahini and honey, which we enjoyed as our first slice. Black tahini is a devilishly good spread of black sesame seeds that pairs splendidly with ricotta or labneh. Honey, too. Toast number two was dressed in a keen spread of natural peanut butter and cherry jam for Ben and macadamia butter for me, lots of it. With a little ricotta and honey because I can’t get enough of that combination.
Is there a toast recipe you’ve been loving on lately? Do let me know. I’m ever so fond of piling new toppings on my toast.
♥ Alpine Bread (a brand I saw in the supermarket recently. I am rarely in the big supermarkets so I find it a little overwhelming when I do visit and find myself buying a few new products “just to try”…It’s no Flinders Sourdough, but I’m pleased to see a better and growing variety of bread options for shoppers)
