Ricotta Toast

Simple pleasures. This toast makes a tasty and quick breakfast, yet is fancy enough for brunch. Use small baguette slices and serve as bite size appetizers during cocktail hour. You can keep it easy or try a variety of topping to mix things up. You can't go wrong with any ricotta and bread pairing.


  • Fresh ricotta

  • Sourdough bread (I love cracked wheat sourdough- from Trader Joe's or San Luis brand)

For Savory Toast:

  • Olive oil

  • Salt

  • Parsley

  • Options- add pesto, romesco sauce, or avocado, chopped hard boiled egg, or roasted tomatoes and sweet peppers and top with nuts or seeds, such as chopped pistachios, pine nuts, or sunflower seeds.

For Sweet Toast:

  • Honey

  • Sliced strawberries

  • Options- add mint, sub strawberries for other fruit such as raspberries, mango or banana. Consider topping with nuts or seeds, such as chopped glazed walnuts or sunflower seeds
