Strawberry Toast

0

This has to be fast – I am giving myself 10 minutes to get this post done.  It is not even 8am and the sweet husband has already hauled all the kids out for a breakfast/playground adventure. I have been tasked with emptying a very full dishwasher, going to get groceries and get myself and the house together because we are off to a wedding in PA and we are ditching our sweet loves overnight.

But I could not resist the temptation of sitting down and enjoying a breakfast all by myself in a quiet, peaceful house. I was still chewing it while I was downloading the pics for this.

This is fast, filling and the kids totally dig it – I have made it like 3 times this week. Once you place the strawberries on the toast serve immediately so it doesn’t get soggy with all that wonderful strawberry juice. What you can do is put everything else on the toast, strawberries on the side and show the kids how to just gently squish the strawberry with their fingers and place it on the toast themselves.  They will love it! Unless you have a little man like I do who hates to get sticky or messy – but the other 2 have absolutely no problem with it.  So I squish his since I am in a continual state of sticky and messiness.

Two products that I used here you may not have in your regular stockpile but no worries – just stuff I have found that I really like and perhaps you can keep an eye out for – the toast can be made with regular cream cheese and you can skip vanilla powder.

Greek yogurt cream cheese – just saw it for first time last week in our fabulous local store, Fairways, and Nielsen Massey Vanilla Powder. Any place where I may have an urge to sprinkle cinnamon – I now use this. It is magic. I ordered it from King Arthur Flour- http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/vanilla-powder-25-oz

Strawberry Toast
Ingredients
  • whole grain bread-toasted
  • butter
  • cream cheese or greek yogurt cream cheese
  • nut butter (I used freshly ground peanut from grocery store)
  • Maldon salt (or sea salt)
  • strawberries (or blackberries would work also)
  • honey (Acacia is my favorite – a very pure tasting honey that isn’t heavy)
  • vanilla powder (optional but you seriously need a stash of this stuff)
Instructions
  1. Spread thin layer of butter on warm toast. Top with thin layer cream cheese, peanut butter and sprinkle of salt.
  2. Squish very ripe strawberries between your fingers and place on top of the toast.
  3. Drizzle honey and add sprinkle a pinch of vanilla powder (if you get that, don’t use the shaker holes on top of the container – way too much comes out).
  4. Serve immediately.
