Let’s talk about toast!

Why? I was recently given as toaster and back in January I had some of the best toast for breakfast at this little hipster café in San Francisco. It was amazing and I think about it all the time.

This cafe had three pieces of toast on the menu and figured I has to try it. One of the pieces of toast was toasted to perfection, covered in avocado and then the most delicious bacon was placed on top. Another one had a mystery sauce, fresh sliced tomato and basil. The last had a fried egg, salsa and cilantro on top. This was so simple yet unforgettable.

I have seen this kinds of recipes on Pinterest before but never took the time to try them and way underestimated the flavor they had! Now, with my new toaster I have been making up all kinds of fancy toasts for myself.

I love that toast has been the ultimate side dish and now it is stealing the show!

Fun fact: Toast is ancient and early civilization used to brown bread. The Romans got the idea from the Egyptians in 500 BC!! So, toast is really old and I think it is in need of some sprucing up!

Below are some“fancy” toast recipes to try!!

  • 1) Hard Boiled Egg!

Step 1: toast the toast. Step 2: Spread some mayo on it. Step 3: slice the up a hard boiled egg and place it on the toast. Step 4: drizzle the toast with olive oil (I use basil infused olive oil). This is extremely simple and I eat it all the time. In fact this is my go to because I always have hard boiled eggs on hand. They make for a healthy snack!!

  • 2) Goat Cheese!

Step 1: put some goat cheese on the toast (yummy, try it). Step 2: Put some kinds of fruit on it. Melon is the best to me and then drizzle with agave!

  • 3) Classic!

Step 1: spread some peanut butter on that toast. Side note: We have to buy this in bulk because we eat so much of it and we are a two person house hold. It is ridiculous!  Step 2: slice up some banana and put it on the peanut butter. If you would like add some chia seeds and ta dah you are done!

  • 4) Tropical!

Step 1: add some cottage cheese to the toast. Step 2: add pineapple slices. Step 3: add cashews. Now enjoy !

I hope this post has helped you re think about toast. The little café change the toast game for me and I am enjoying every bit of it! I really love simple delicious food and there are endless possibilities with toast. The flavor combinations can get wild!

I plan to incorporate flavored balsamic and more infused olive oils when I make my fancy toast. My family grows olives in northern California and I am always looking for new ways to enjoy olive/olive oil. My family gets pretty bored and so I will look for ways to spice things up!

I find toast inspiration all over the place. Pinterest, buzz feed, Facebook (those tasty videos) and many other places on the internet!   Enjoy trying these easy recipes and enjoy toast!

My Favorite Franks Redhot Recipes!

I think hot sauce is the best condiment ever invented! What I have found is that spicy dishes are easy to make and so enjoyable to consume. I use a lot of Tabasco sauce because my cooking style is influenced by my soon to be mother-in-law and she is from Louisiana. She makes the most amazing spicy comfort food and that might be why I am marrying into the family. ONLY KIDDING but I love Cajun cooking!

Once I was introduced to the many uses of Tabasco I ventured out and discovered  Franks Redhot (buffalo) sauce. It is more than a wing sauce and I use it to make so many different kinds of dishes. Whenever I am trying to eat healthy I bake different proteins  and poor Franks Redhot all over it!

Franks RedHot Sauce dates back to 1918 and was made by a farmer in Louisiana. It’s Cajun and I did not even know! No, wonder I love it so much!

Below is a list of the top three uses for Buffalo Sauce

  1. Buffalo Chicken Wraps

These are amazing and healthy! This dish is so simple and light. What you do is cut up chicken breast into bite size pieces, cover the chicken in Franks Redhot sauce, then roll the chicken in Panko bread crumbs and bake. Click here to go to the recipe that I adore!

      2. Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites 

This is also a lighter recipe. The only problem with this sauce is that it is high in sodium.  So people who are watching their salt intake might need to try a different sauce. This recipe batters and bakes cauliflower to perfection and then covers it in Franks Redhot sauce. I make this for football games and people complain about the cauliflower until they actually try it!

  1. Classic Hot Wings

You cannot do a Franks Redhot sauce post without mentioning that this sauce is famous for making hot wings. My favorite recipe is the Ree Drummond recipe from food network. Note, this is not healthy like the other recipes in this list but man oh man is it yummy. We fry the wings on an outside burner which helps with the mess of fried foods. Click here for the recipe !
