From okra to fruit salad, there are so many delicious things that you can put on the top of a bit of bread
1. Sweet potato spread
Homemade sweet potato paste smothered in seeds and nuts – we’d toast ours in paprika for a punchy little something extra.
2. Caramelised banana
Something sticky and delicious for a long and lazy brunch.
3. Pizza toast
A simple way to replicate the delicious taste of pizza, without having to buy a pizza oven or wrestle with dough.
4. Chocolate batter and fruit
Subscribing to the 'more is more' approach, this medley of doughnut peach, vegan brownie batter and almond granola is both woah and hell yeah.
5. Yogurt and avocado
A sweet-meets-savoury mash up, if ever we saw one. Sure to awaken the taste buds.
6. White peach
Just peachy. Life’s a peach. Insert own pun and devour.
7. Toasted marshmallows
This decadent concoction must come from the s'more school of thought – baked marshmallows and a twist of chocolate sauce. Talk about melt in the mouth.
8. Eggy bread
Bringing a whole new inventive meaning to 'egg on toast'. OK, OK, if you want to be pedantic – egg in toast.
9. Smoked fish and mango salsa
There’s something distinctly Scandi about this smoked fish and hewn wood styling combo.
10. Cottage cheese and pear syrup
Talk about a protein explosion – Popeye would be proud. Oh, and if you’ve never eaten cheese with jam, jelly or syrup – now’s the time to try.
11. Ham and tomato
All those tasty things you’d put inside a sandwich – well, they taste just as brilliant piled on toast. Get experimenting now.
12. Watercress and worcester
Who needs to go out for brunch when you can pep up a simple egg on toast with peppery watercress and a splash of the brown stuff?
13. Watermelon toast
We think perhaps this toast is having an identity crisis …
14. Chocolate spread
And ta-da! With a little steady handwork, you can turn your breakfast into a work of art.
15. Cured ham
The sort of salty snack that makes a perfect accompaniment to soup.
16. Fig and basil
This combo is a real taste of Italy. Just add a crisp glass of wine and serve.
17. Cashew cream spread
Break the fast with this pleasing vegan delight.
18. Smoked salmon and avocado
Something fishy this way comes!
19. Tomato and mozzarella
The sticky balsamic glaze is going to make the flavours jump right off the toast, (and into your mouth!).
This is a bit like a salad niçoise on toast. Only without the tuna.
21. Avocado and egg
OK. It's not a new one – but isn't this just the softest boiled egg there ever was? We’d add a sprinkling of red chill flakes, too.
22. Fresh spinach and walnuts
Crunchy, leafy and – we promise – not just for Thursdays.
23. Honeycomb and ice-cream
One to save for special occasions? Pah, we’d eat it every night if we could!
24. Lady finger
Morning glory, ladyfinger or okra – whatever you call it, now’s the time to try it on toast. It’s green al dente bite pairs well with egg, just saying.
25. Hummus and pepper
Hummus, cucumber and chilli flakes – crunchy, filling and if you don’t mind, we’d like another slice.
26. Mushrooms and blue cheese
All three of these slices look right up our street – must we choose only one?
27. Fruit salad style
Toast fit for Carmen Miranda!
