Ricotta Toast is the new avocado toast– and it’s no wonder why. We were excited to make this recipe. but even we were surprised with how delicious it was! I could eat it every day, and enjoy it every time!
The great thing about this recipe is that it can be customized to your taste. And ricotta toast in general can have all sorts of different ingredients and toppings. We went with tomato and egg, and it was a good choice.
Let’s talk about it.
Ricotta is cheese, and you can never have too much cheese. But ricotta is pretty bland if taken on its own. So the first thing that needs to be done is some seasoning. It’s simple: salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese, and some fresh chives.
Toast some good sourdough bread and spread the ricotta mixture on generously. But beware– don’t spread on a warm piece of toast, or the cheese may slide off. Let it cool down a bit first.
Tomato and Egg
Top that ricotta cheese with a nice slice of fresh tomato, and top it with a fried egg. We’re frying the egg in our Fresh Churned Garlic Butter, and it adds a lot of flavor. It works great with all the other ingredients here.
Frying eggs can be tough, so keep an eye on it so you don’t mess up the yolk. But the nice thing is you can have the yolk to your liking.
