Crispy, crunchy, slathered in butter and jam, or dipped in a runny egg yolk --- let's face it: toast is pretty much the perfect food. But why should breakfast get all the glory? Topped with some ricotta and fresh herbs, toast can be a beautiful, elegant appetizer -- or, with eggs, or mushrooms, or fish, it can be a full-on dinner. Here are ten of our favorite non-breakfast toast recipes.

Creamed mushrooms on toast anyone? Just the thing when you need something hot but are too tired to think - the perfect comfort food. Soften thickly sliced mushrooms in butter with a shake or two of celery salt till they are little toasty on the corners. Add a little chopped parsley and some cream - crème fraiche if possible. Bubble to thicken and reduce slightly. Season with ground black pepper (and a squeeze of lemon juice if you didn't have crème fraiche) and slide onto sourdough toast.
