Since we first discovered the magical deliciousness of avocado toast, life hasn’t really been the same — and now that we’re stumbling upon even more amazing ways to eat toast, our breakfast, lunch, and dinner strategy has seriously shifted. After all, it doesn’t really get any easier than just popping some bread in the toaster, and then covering it in an assortment of toppings.
Whether you’re interested in trying out some new impressive brunch recipes, or you just want to add some easy bread-based meals to your cooking repertoire, you can’t go wrong with toast. From fancy cheese toast to chocolate-covered dessert toast, the options are pretty endless. Sure, we’ll always appreciate a good piece of bread slathered in butter and sprinkled with salt, but we’re also willing to try something new.
The next time you’re not sure what to make for a quick breakfast, dinner, or lunch, don’t forget the simple beauty of a piece of toast. With the right cheese, veggies, or fruit, it can become a bonafide meal (or even an appetizer or hors d'oeuvre). Just do yourself a favor and buy some good loaves of bread, and you’ll be properly prepared to make the best toast ever.
