Breakfast - Toast

We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day to get us going. But sometimes I get bored with the same repertoire so I'm going to start to compile a list of breakfast ideas.

To start with, TOAST. 

I've never really been a great fan of toast for breakfast; I have just found it too boring and doesn't keep me going for as long as I would like. But I have tried different breads and toppings and now it is one of my favourite quick brekkies.

Breads


I tend to like a good hearty, grainy or sourdough, low GI bread. Not only are they more substantial, but they taste better too. I do try and avoid the "supermarket" breads where possible as they contain soy flour. The reason I avoid this is a whole other topic! Some of the ones we get are: 
  • Rye Sourdough
  • Spelt Sourdough
  • Baker's Delight Wholemeal Country Grain (they no longer seem to put "anti-foam" in their breads so I do occasionally buy it now).
  • Tip Top 9 Grain - any of them really
  • English Muffins
  • Country Life Brand (gluten free available)

Toppings

  • Ricotta and honey (yellow box)
  • Hummus and sliced tomato
  • Avocado and sliced tomato
  • Avocado, tomato and cheese grill
  • Cheese and tomato grill
  • Mashed banana with cinnamon
  • Peanut Butter (love the Macro Organic brand - it's just peanuts! Fancy that!)
  • Baked beans (home made preferably or the Coles Organic tin is not too bad)
  • Cottage cheese, chives and sliced tomato
  • Tinned tuna and tomato (Greenseas in springwater)

What other breads and toppings do you recommend?
