Toast is one of those versatile food items. You can have toast for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. Toast is warm and crunchy plus there are some savory and creative toppings you can add to make it even more delicious!

Melted Cheese – Makes 4 pieces of toast or 2 sandwiches



4 slices of whole wheat bread

3 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons Honey Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons mayonnaise

1 pinch thyme

The best way to melt the cheese with this sandwich is by using a toaster oven or broiler oven. Start by preheating the toaster oven. Meanwhile, spread a layer of butter on one side of the slices of bread. Place in the toaster oven until brown. In a bowl, combine the cheddar cheese, mustard, mayonnaise and thyme. Turn the bread slices over, add the cheesy mixture and toast once again for a few minutes or until the cheese is brown and bubbly. Sprinkle black pepper to taste.

Roasted Tomatoes and Onions– Makes 4 pieces of toast


1 pound pearl onions

1 ½ pounds cherry tomatoes

Add salt and pepper to taste and roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes. On a plate, arrange the toast slices and top with the tomato and onion mixture.

  1. I sometimes make a grilled peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwich. It’s sweet and messy but tasty.

  2. I always eat the same sandwiches tuna fish, ham and cheese. I think it’s time for change I will try these recipes.

  3. I always seem to be in a rut with toast either topping with peanut butter or just butter and honey. These sound awesome especially adding the feta cheese to roasted tomatoes as a kind of fusion between the last two recipes you posted.
