I don't know about you, but sometimes I just get tired of the same old breakfast foods. Eggs, oatmeal, pancakes...they're all great, of course. I like to change it up every now and then though by taking one typical aspect of breakfast and doing something less common with it.
Easily one of my favorite parts of my first meal of the day is toast. A good, grainy, satisfying piece of toast. The best part about toast? The possibilities of what you use as spreads or toppings are endless! In this recipe I use the bright, refreshing flavors of lemon and apple to wake me up and get my day started on a delicious note!
This recipe is great because it can easily be made to serve one, but it is even easier to multiply for serving many (or for seconds, because let's be honest - when I indulge, I indulge HARD). If you are looking for something quick and simple then this is totally it. I'm pretty sure this is the easiest recipe I have posted! Anyone can do it. On it's own it can even be a healthy after school/work snack. Serve alongside a hard boiled egg and you have a healthful, amazing breakfast!
A rye bread, or sour rye better yet (which is what I used), plays really well with the sweetness of the apple and the creaminess of the ricotta. Use whatever bread you prefer though (even make it gluten free bread), or simply whatever you have on hand!
