Toast it up

Tired of bland bread? You’re not alone! In any given day, a five-person household may consume a minimum of 10 slices, according to the Flour Advisory Bureau. Expand that among 365 days and billions of people and you’ve got yourself a lot of bread! But the question remains: can we make it better?

Believe it or not, the answer is yes! While we’re practically born eating peanut butter and jellies and slowly expand our palates to include subs, sandwiches are not the end-all, be-all of bread use. Bread has been a staple in our diets since the ancient times and it’s obviously here to stay, so we ought to take advantage of all of the tasty modifications we can make to it! Included are six toast variations to shake up your life and excite your taste buds.

If you’re ready to take your breakfast (or snack) to the next level and have a picture-perfect meal that will make anyone envious, you’ve come to the right place. Whether your preference is salty, sweet or savory, there’s a toast for you. Try one or try them all, but one thing’s for sure: you’re bound to find a new favorite!
