8 Toppings To Try On Toast Tuesday

Runners are no strangers to #ToastTuesday. But the perfect piece of crunchy bread topped with plain old PB&J can get old quickly. It’s time to up your Toast Tuesday game with these inventive yet simple toast toppings.

Strawberry Toast

This recipe creation actually includes four options—two sweet and two savory—and each variety makes strawberries the star of the show. Loading up on strawberries in the winter is definitely recommended, especially since they are packed with immune-boosting vitamin C. Trust us: These taste as good as they look.

Cucumber Tartine

Toast is the perfect meal for one, and this recipe doesn’t require anything but a toaster. With just five simple ingredients, including cucumbers, feta, ricotta and truffle salt, this savory toast is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. We especially love how the crunchy cucumber nicely balances the soft texture of the toast and cheese.

Bean Toast

If you think you’re not a fan of beans, then you’ve never tried Baharat Bean Toast with a fried egg on top. Baharat is a fragrant blend of spices used in Middle Eastern cooking, and it’s delicious when mashed with beans on top of toast. Did I also mention that everything is better with an egg on top? Everything. This toast makes a great breakfast or lunch option, but try not to eat too many fiber-filled beans right before a run.

Roasted Grape And Ricotta Toast

If you’ve never had roasted grapes before, you don’t know what you are missing. Roasting this naturally sweet fruit makes it taste like candy, and it’s perfect when paired with salty ricotta and topped with some crunchy nuts. In addition, this toast is made with Dave’s Killer Bread White Bread Done Right Thin-Sliced, which has the taste and texture of white bread with the goodness of whole grains for just 80 calories per slice. I like to call it “beginner whole-wheat” bread for those who prefer white bread but want to add some whole grains to their life.

Lemon Salmon Avocado Toast

Amp up your standard avocado toast with some wild-caught salmon and lemon juice. Quite frankly, the salmon and lemon are great toast toppers by themselves, but they make an even tastier toast when combined with avocado. The combination of salmon, avocado and olive oil also provides tons of satiating and brain-boosting healthy fats.

Egg Salad Toast

If you think you’re not a fan of egg salad, then you’ve never had it with dill and tahini. This recipe kicks the deli staple up a notch with the flavors of the Mediterranean. It’s also so easy to make—just hard-boil some eggs and mash up with fresh herbs. You’ll have a protein-packed toast in no time flat.

Mashed Chickpea And Avocado Bagel Toast

This creation combines all the creamy goodness of avocado with fiber-rich chickpeas on a bagel. If that doesn’t sound like a hearty post-run toast recipe, I don’t know what does. Feel free to top with a little crushed red pepper for some spice.

Smoked Salmon Toast on Rye

This may sound similar to some of the other toasts, but it has two distinct differences—the smoked salmon and rye bread. It tastes just like a traditional Scandinavian open-faced sandwich on dense bread, typically topped with smoked or dried fish. If you’ve never tried this combination before, add it to your “eat now” list.
