Stuff on toast – a staple in every diet! Avocado on toast is probably the most popular one in our house. There are few better breakfasts than fresh toasted sourdough spread thickly with ripe avocado, a squeeze of lemon juice, cracked pepper, sea salt, and a sprinkling of dukkah.
Another staple at our place is goat cheese – chévre – on toast. There is a small French stall in the market we go to that sells baguettes and croissants, home churned butter, and the BEST cheeses. While I was pregnant a role of their brie was all that I craved. They also have fresh goat cheese which they sell by the container. We often get some during our Saturday morning market run and then it’s goat cheese on toast for the rest of the weekend! So easy, and so good.
If you’re not familiar with goat cheese, it is lighter than cheese made with cow’s milk, and actually easier to digest if you have an intolerance to diary. It is also slightly tangier, and usually deliciously creamy.
This isn’t really a recipe. More like a few suggested ways to eat goat cheese on toast. My one recommendation, though, is to get your hands on the fresh stuff. It makes the world of difference.
