Doesn’t it look yummy?  I’ve dubbed it “Brenda’s Tomato, Egg and Bacon Breakfast Bruschetta.”

This got me thinking about more tasty ways you can top toast to create an easy, healthy and delicious breakfast.

Of course the better your bread, the better your toast! Homemade is a special treat. But any really good bread (the fewer ingredients the better) will do. I really like the La Brea breads from Costco and wholewheat sourdough from Trader Joe’s or Fresh and Easy.

So, here we go with 13 more tasty ways to top your toast…

Jar of Raspberry Fruit Spread

2) Fruit Spread. You could keep things simple with your favorite fruit spread of jam, though this is something I rarely do. I prefer to spread on a little protein.

Toast and Laughing Cow Cheese

5) Cheese. Laughing cow spread is a natural choice since it’s so spreadable. But really any cheese would work. When I was in London recently, I was served several kinds of cheese, including cheddar to enjoy on my toast.

Toast with Raspberries, Laughing Cow Cheese, and Honey
