8 Savory Breakfast Toasts

June 20, 2014

As the peak of summer approaches, we inevitably fall into a breakfast rut. Our go-to oatmeal gives us heat stroke, blended smoothies wake up the neighbors, and standard cereal leaves us snacking a half-hour later. Enter the endlessly adaptable, highly portable breakfast toast. We're not talking about your run of the mill bread and butter combo or the decadent, sugar coma-inducing toasts we save for weekends, but hearty, savory toasts that balance a crisp crunch with a creamy topping. So scour your pantry and heat the toaster oven -- here are eight savory toasts to bolster your breakfast.

Have you ever thought about banana and nut butter on toast? Not only is it delicious, but it is also healthy! Here is a helpful article about how to best add banana to your toast, along with other choices: . Thanks so much for these ideas, I can't wait to try a new breakfast everyday!
