Toast 12 Ways

I’ve been on a toast kick over the past 3 months. It’s probably because I love toast. It has never ever failed me, and to this I am grateful.  Today I partnered with Dave’s Killer Bread who makes the best sandwich bread to show you some of my favorite ways to eat toast. Let’s start this Toast Party, shall we?

For this Toast 12 Ways post, I used Dave’s Killer Bread 21 Whole Grains & Seeds Thin-Sliced!  I appreciate thin sliced toast. Means I can eat more, right? 😉  At home, we always toast our bread using a panini press because it makes THE BEST toast.  It’s crunchy, crispy with perfectly placed grill marks- just the way I like it.

Let’s toast!

CINNAMON ROLL TOAST

A good smear of coconut butter with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top followed with a few raisins and you’re faking a cinnamon roll situation. One of my personal favorites!

DRIED APRICOT BLUE CHEESE WALNUT TOAST

Chopped dried apricots mixed with toasted walnuts, blue cheese crumbles and a drizzle of balsamic glaze makes for a sweet/savory toast. One slice and you’re good to go.

SPICY TUNA MELT TOAST

Spread your favorite tuna salad on top of the toasted bread. Pile shredded cheese on top of the tuna salad and broil the open-faced sandwich in the oven until cheese has melted. Finish with hot sauce for a Spicy Tuna Melt.

SUNFLOWER SEED BUTTER BANANA TOAST

Sunflower seed butter is spread evenly on top of your toast. Slices of bananas get nestled in the seed butter. With Dave’s Killer Bread, you’ll love all the seeds in the bread with this combo. It’s crunchy goodness. Sometimes I sprinkle cinnamon on top…

PESTO FRIED EGG CHEDDAR TOAST

Fry an egg.  Lay down shredded cheese on top of your toast. Place egg on top of cheese so it melts. Drizzle with fresh pesto. Grab a fork. This is a deliciously messy toast!

CINNAMON SUGAR BANANA TOAST

Smear toast with salted butter. Top with cinnamon sugar. Take a torch and burn the cinnamon sugar. Now add sliced bananas on top. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar and torch that too. It’s like cinnamon toast meets banana meets creme brûlée.

TUNA WHITE BEAN SALAD TOAST

Tuna White Bean salad with arugula and a balsamic drizzle. This is one of my favorites! I added chopped red pepper for crunch and color.

APRICOT JAM GOAT CHEESE ARUGULA TOAST

Spread goat cheese (or creme fraiche!) on top of your toast. Add a generous dollop of apricot jam (fig jam would be awesome too!). A few sprigs of peppery arugula balances out the sweet/tangy profile.

PESTO AVOCADO TOAST

Smash avocado into your toast with a fork. Sprinkle with sea salt & pepper. Spread pesto on top. I could have this everyday for the rest of my life. Sometimes I put hot sauce on there.

Take your favorite hummus. Spread it on the toast. Add thin slices of cucumber on top. Drizzle the top with sesame oil and top with salt, pepper and toasted sesame seeds. DEELISH.

PICKLED BEETS GOAT CHEESE ARUGULA TOAST

Goat cheese is spread on top of the toast. A few arugula leaves for color. Pickled beets are sliced and nestled on top. It’s like my favorite salad on top of toast!

CHERRY ALMOND TOAST

Mix a few drops of almond extract in cream cheese. Spread it on top of your toast. Top with slivered almonds and syrupy cherries. Your brain will think it’s a pastry!

One of the reasons I partnered with Dave’s Killer Bread (besides them being my favorite seedy sandwich bread) is that I really love that there’s so much more to their company than their amazing bread. The story of co-funder Dave Dahl is an inspirational one.

See for yourself:

They do important work by helping support ex-felons who are dedicated to changing their lives around. They thoroughly believe in the power of second chances and I totally respect that! You can read more about their Second Chance Project/Foundation here.

I hope this post inspires you to up your toast game! Enjoy :)

    I’m doing a Whole 30 right now, and have no idea why I tempted myself to click. That cherry-almond combo sounds like something I need in my life RIGHT NOW.

    I didn’t know they did thin sliced. This makes it 10 times better. I totally want to eat toast alllll day now. Weekend goals.

  • Jamie

    You’re speaking my love language. When all else fails, something-on-toast wins the day. One of my favorites is toast with almond butter, thin-sliced apple, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Or cream cheese, sliced banana and a drizzle of honey. Or avocado and tomato. Or cheesy scrambled eggs. Or – !!!

  • Stephanie

    You gave me SO many options now with my toast & I love DKB and the story behind the company – they do such good things! Thank you for this – you rock!

  • Debbie

    Which toast is the one in the lower left corner? It looks like cucumbers on top of something yummy.

  • Libby

    Well if that isn’t the fanciest damn banana cinnamon toast I’ve ever seen. A TORCH?! Woah.

  • Adrianne

    First I stopped at the coconut butter one because that stuff is amazing. I got distracted then by the beet one since I love beets and goat cheese (with pistachios). Finally the cherry one sealed the deal. They have this bread at Sprouts here but I’ve never tried it. I need to grab a loaf. :)

  • Sarah

    These are inspiring! I’m adding toast to my meal rotation starting tomorrow. p.s. You mentioned a few weeks ago that you’d switched up your bag situation and would write about it once you’d figured it out. I’ll cast my vote for that post; I’m constantly re-evaluating my bag/organization needs and love to find inspiration in others’ systems. I’m also about to start a bullet journal and would be interested in reading about your experience.

    I really like what Dave’s Killer Bread is about. Pretty cool. And I had no idea that the thin slice exists! I’ve got to find that! And I definitely have to step up my toast game. :)

    Where can you buy DKB? I haven’t seen it in my local grocery stores. (I’m in the Boston area.)

    • Tracy

      If you go on their website you should be able to source it! I think you just have to type in your zip code 😉

      • Jenny

        Thanks, Tracy. I see they’re at Costco in the ‘burbs (not helpful for those of us without cars). Hopefully they’ll appear in one of my local grocery stores soon. :)

    Amazing Post! Good to visit your site I really enjoyed watching 12 varieties of toast.

    Keep Posting…

  • Maggie Hanson

    Toast is my number one favorite food of all time! Normally I just go with either butter and honey or butter and cinnamon sugar but I’ve been known to get fancy with some smashed avocado every now and again. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the goat cheese, jam, arugula idea though. Definitely going to eat that in the future. As always, beautiful pics!

  • \( ̄︶ ̄)/

    All of those foods looks so delicious.. May I know how long time to make that “SUNFLOWER SEED BUTTER BANANA TOAST”?
