Literally anyone can make toast. It’s the cooking equivalent to breathing; you can go through the motions without a single thought (other than whether to use butter, jam, or both). Which is why toast for breakfast makes sense—you’re foggy, harried, and hungry. But what about dinner? Chances are you’re just as frazzled and ready for something quick at the end of the day as at the beginning. We have a secret: toast can be your dinner superhero, too. Top toast with sautéed vegetables, like broccoli or mushrooms. Spread toast with creamy tahini or smoked trout, then cover it in shredded mozzarella or feta cheese. No matter what variation you try, you’ll enjoy a fast, filling meal. Check out some of our favorite ways to turn toast into dinner below:
