An Easy Breakfast: 10 Ways to Make Gourmet Toast
Gourmet toast is an easy but flavorful snack or breakfast that can be customized in so many ways! All you need is a base of crusty bread and something to spread it on to start your gourmet toast. Then, toppings like fruit, vegetables, and pantry staples are like a cherry on top. A snack as simple as peanut butter toast can be so tasty, satisfying, and comforting! But gourmet toasts by way of avocado, ricotta, hummus, and more are popular for good reason.
Make Your Own Gourmet Toast
Loaded gourmet toasts, like an open faced sandwich, can be simple or creative and helps satisfy hunger in no time. A single slice of bread transforms into a filling snack or side for breakfast in just a few steps. Use any sauce or spread as the base and mix and match with several different toppings.
Once super trendy and known for being versatile and filling, avocado toast is a great example of gourmet toast. It can be dressed up with red pepper flakes, everything seasoning, feta cheese, and even a fried egg!

Tacoma Boys offers a variety of gluten free and traditional bread for your toast making needs. Gourmet toast can be vegan and gluten free thanks to varieties like Schar Gluten Free Sourdough and Against the Grain Gluten Free Baguette.
Part of a Balanced Breakfast
Start with loaded toast featuring fruit and veggies and go from there to build a balanced breakfast! A little bit of fiber and carbs from the bread plus protein and fat from the spread (like nut butter or avocado) is a great jumping off point for breakfast. If you load up your gourmet toast enough, it can even be filling enough for your whole breakfast! Just be sure to incorporate fruit or veggies for a fresh and nutritious edge. And mix and match with toppings like these and more:
- Morton and Bassett Everything Sprinkle Seasoning
- Spitz Salted Sunflower Seeds
- LR Rice Local Northwest Honey
- Fresh herbs like dill, chives, basil, and cilantro
- Fried or soft boiled egg
Breakfast toast recipes can be super simple or ultimately creative! Toast with any sauce or spread as a base is mixed and matched with a variety of toppings for nutrients, flavor, and texture. Think fresh or prepared fruit or veggies, protein like shredded chicken or eggs, and crunchy or soft toppings like chickpeas or cheese.
