Spice Up Your Toast with Gourmet Toppings

Spice Up Your Toast with Gourmet Toppings© Hemera/Thinkstock

Butter and jam beware—there’s a new generation of toppings out there and they’re having their way with your toast. Inspired by a recent article in New York magazine about the Big Apple’s current toast infatuation, we came up with these fresh ideas for dressing up an old standby:

1. Anchovy Paste
Spread it on and sprinkle with lemon and herbs for a savory side dish full of healthy omega-3s.

2. Ricotta and Honey
Like yogurt, only yummier.

3. Smoked Sturgeon, Avocado, and Arugula
Reminiscent of the smoked fish plate at Grandma’s—if Grandma was a gourmet chef in Southern California.

4. Smoked Salmon and Mascarpone Cheese
Top with pickled shallots and see #3.

5. Meatballs, Mozzarella, and Fresh Tomato Sauce
The meatball grinder’s more sophisticated cousin.

6. Cucumber and Olive Oil
This modern rethinking of the classic tea sandwich is most elegant with the cucumber unpeeled and sliced thin.
