Sweet Toast Toppings

First off, sending good wishes to those in Houston/Texas during Hurricane Harvey, especially my sister and my friends from medical school! Alas, I know from first hand experience how prone Houston is to flooding.

Where there’s rain, there’s a rainbow, so I’m sharing this easy and very colorful breakfast idea – rainbow toast.

I’m a huge sucker for sales at groceries and found loaves of bread for 50 cents! Even though I had already bought two huge baguettes from Costco the day prior, I bought them up.

So now I had to figure out a way to use up all my bread; I figured no better idea than toast.

Growing up, we ate a lot of Nutella toast and peanut butter toast because it was cheap, easy, and portable. We especially them while traveling and during our golf competitions, back when I used to compete a lot.

This is a slightly more grown up and more colorful version of the plain toast I ate in when I was younger. I love trying out different combinations of fruit and spreads, especially before the summer fruit season ends.

I found it more efficient to make several of these toasts ahead of time, then save them for busy mornings the rest of the week. Make sure your bread is toasted prior and apply a generous spread of peanut/almond butter or Nutella to protect the fruit from making the bread soggy. Cream cheese does not keep as well so eat immediately.

This is the sweet toppings version, so stay tuned for the savory toppings.

Enjoy, and stay dry!
