There's hundreds of ways you can enjoy fresh tomatoes, but sometimes you don't feel like following a recipe!

Tomato toast is something you can throw together quickly for a quick snack or light meal!

There are 4 basic elements to tomato toast:

  1. The base
  2. A creamy sort of spread
  3. The tomatoes
  4. The toppings

See below for ideas on ingredients you can use to create your own tomato toast!

Mix and match a variety of flavors using whatever items you have on hand!

Assemble Your Ingredients!

Toast Something For the Base!

  • Thick slice of sourdough toast
  • English muffin
  • Bagel half
  • Or use any bread you have on hand- Make sure to toast it for the best flavor!

Spread On a Creamy Layer

  • Mayo
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Soft-scrambled eggs
