11 Best Unexpected Toppings For Toast
By REBECCA RIDDLE
Hummus
Hummus is frequently served with vegetables or spread on pita sandwiches, but it's also delicious on toast. With a hearty piece of bread as the base, spread your preferred hummus thickly over it, and if you're feeling extra, top it with feta, lemon juice, olive oil, additional tahini, and chili flakes.
Condensed Milk
Condensed milk is a thick, sweet, syrupy substance made from evaporated milk and sugar that, when spread on bread, transforms into a dessert-like delicacy. For a delightful way to start the day, spread condensed milk on toast, especially one made of white fluffy bread, and have it for breakfast, or with a cup of tea for a pick-me-up in the afternoon.
Fava Beans
When thinking about toast toppings, fava beans might not be the first thing that springs to mind, but these flavorful legumes offer a wonderful avocado substitution that is less expensive. Despite the fact that they must be cooked before serving, mash fava beans on toast with lemon, olive oil, salt, and chili flakes for a quick and nutritious meal.
Yogurt (Custard)
Yogurt is already a typical breakfast food, but it has gained even more popularity because of the TikTok trend known as "yogurt toast" or "custard toast." This popular trend includes baking brioche with a mixture of yogurt, egg, and a sweetener such as sugar or maple syrup, resulting in a dessert that is crispy on the outside but creamy and custardy on the interior.
Pepper Jelly
Although red pepper jelly and cream cheese are frequently served on crackers, we strongly advise experimenting and using red pepper jelly instead of your usual strawberry jam on toast. It's a jam-like spread made mostly of peppers, sugar, vinegar, and pectin that's both sweet and spicy.
