Dear Toast,
We love you.

And we mean it—we even named our podcast after our favorite snack. Whether it's under a blanket of bubbly cheese, slathered with butter and jam, or loaded with smashed avocado, we think toast is the best thing since sliced bread. It's the ultimate vehicle for toppings and is infinitely customizable, making toast superior to most snacking (or, really, anytime). Here are 17 toasts with the most—organized by ingredient to help you snack happy.

7 grain sprouted toast, ricotta, sliced pear, drizzled with honey and sliced almonds. Sublime!
