In my house, toast is very much a morning staple, but I know I tend to gravitate to the same spreads each morning, and I certainly serve the same thing to my kids regularly. Sometimes it’s nice to change it up a little, and I’m sure many of us could use some inspiration when it comes to topping our toast.
Print this list off and post it on your fridge for when your breakfast, lunch or dinner needs a little flavour boost.

A few notes:
- Feel free to use sunflower seed butter in place of peanut and or almond butter
- Mascarpone cheese makes a wonderful replacement for cream cheese and/or ricotta
- Fruit butters make an excellent toast topping
- Almost any fruit can be cut, chopped, and sliced and placed on top of toast
- Use a variety of breads to keep your meals interesting. We like cinnamon raisin, sourdough, pumpernickel, rye, multigrain, wholegrain, and brioche.
- Broiling the toast can melt cheese and warm fruit.
- If making multiple pieces of toast, use the broil function on your oven and a rimmed baking sheet instead of your toaster.
