My Top10 Toast Toppers

My Top10 Toast Toppers
Toast is terrific! Topped with everything from butter to bacon bits, toast is a quick and easy way to grab a delicious snack. Every kind of bread can be used—sweet French, sourdough, pumpernickel, honey wheat, buttermilk, potato—toast of all varieties is great by itself, but best when heaped with heavenly toppings.


Don’t you love how those bees work overtime to create this sweet and sticky topping for your toast? Whipped, spun, or squeezed from a plastic bear, honey is nature’s candy in spreadable form.


Have you had hummus on toast? A dip made from chick peas, tahini, garlic, cumin, lemon, and olive oil, this Middle Eastern treat adds both exotic flavor and lip-smacking protein to your crispy slice of bread.

Peanut butter and banana

Sure, peanut butter is great all by itself, but if you add some sliced banana to it, you’ll know what the King was always raving about. PB&B was purportedly Elvis Presley’s favorite sandwich and it’s just as rockin’ on a piece of toast.

Cream Cheese and Olives

Minced black olives mixed into spreadable cream cheese can turn your toast into an elegant tea-time treat. Add diced deli turkey for an even fuller flavor, or top your cream cheese concoction with pimentos or paprika for some eye-catching color.

Beans and Chili

Refried beans and a dab of green or red chili can turn your toast into a Mexican fiesta in your mouth. Cut your bread into triangles and tell yourself your south-of-the-border savories are tantalizing tapas.


Mmm, take the key off that sardine can and roll back the cover. A line-up of little fishies on top of your toast might sound, well, fishy, but one taste will show you how scrumptious sardines can be.


Pesto isn’t just for pizza and pasta. This zesty spread made of basil, pine nuts, Parmesan cheese and olive oil, can give your toast the zing it needs for an afternoon pick-me-up. But go light—pesto sauce is packed full of calories as well as deliciousness.

Apple Butter

A caramelized, concentrated form of applesauce, apple butter has been a favorite of Pennsylvania Dutch households since colonial days. No actual butter is involved; this cinnamon and clove spiced stewed apple preserve gets its name from its smooth spreadability. Search your supermarket shelves and take it home to your toast.


A piece of toast and a cup of fruit-flavored yogurt, what a winning breakfast combination. But why keep them separate? Slather your morning yogurt onto your piece of toast and savor their crispy, fruity partnership. It's a great way to cut out the butter too.


Cheese, any kind of cheese, when melted over toast is the ultimate in a mouthwatering mini-meal. From tangy Swiss to creamy Brie to flavorful Feta, cheese is the perfect toast-topper. If you’re watching your calories, a wedge of Laughing Cow Lite can ease those cravings and still count as CHEESE!

So, the next time you are craving comfort food in a hurry, whip out the toaster, raid your refrigerator, and see what unique toast-toppers you can come up with.
