Raise your hand right now if you just love toast. I know you can’t see me right now, but my hand is definitely up in the air.
Several weeks ago, I posted this recipe for Jeff’s No Knead Bread, and I was very pleased to see many comments come in from people who tried and loved the recipe. The bread is made with beer, so I recently shortened the name to “beer bread.” Given the success everyone is having with this recipe, I thought I’d share some fun toast ideas that work beautifully with crunchy slices of golden beer bread. Below, you’ll find the following:
- Sweet Pea, Mint and Goat Cheese Toast
- Tomato, Basil and Ricotta Toast
- Marinated Zucchini and Feta Toast
Each recipe starts with a slice of toasted beer bread that’s been rubbed with a cut garlic clove. Side note: the aroma that wafts up from the warm bread as you rub the surface with garlic is HEAVEN. Next, the bread is dressed with fresh vegetables, rich cheese, sea salt, black pepper and a hit of bright acid (lemon or vinegar). I’ve outlined 3 combos below, but you could definitely use whatever vegetables/cheeses you have available. Spice roasted carrots with labneh and cilantro. Melted mozzarella and grilled eggplant and basil. Cream cheese with fresh berries and mint. The possibilities are endless! Continue reading for the recipes.
