I wanted to tell you all about two toast combos that are rocking my summer! The first many of you have seen me talk about on my instagram. Lots of you were skeptical, but slowly and surely toast eaters all across the US are converting!
COMBO #1: TOAST WITH BUTTER, CINNAMON SUGAR, AND SCRAMBLED EGGS w/ S&P (optional but highly suggested: throw some bacon on there in between the cinnamon sugar and the eggs)
Now this first combo was discovered one day where I was eating the toast and had bacon and eggs on my plate as well. I realized how amazing the bacon tasted with little bits of cinnamon sugar on it (like a sweet, candied bacon but not too sugary). I decided to throw the eggs and bacon on the toast like an open faced breakfast sandwich and OH MY WORD it was amazing. The sweetness of the cinnamon sugar with the eggs…well, it just works. I have been doing this toast sans bacon ever since and do my best to add bacon on the weekends.
The plate that started it all!!!
*I keep my butter in a dish like this on the counter so it remains soft
**I should note here: the cinnamon sugar is really not super sweet. It adds just the right amount of sweetness but doesn’t make you feel like you are having dessert.
COMBO #2: TOAST WITH BUTTER, CINNAMON SUGAR, AND PEANUT BUTTER (optional: banana, honey, chia seeds and hemp hearts)
This combo came about at the suggestion of multiple followers. After getting so many responses to the combo #1 above, many of you messaged me saying it sounds weird, but peanut butter and butter are actually amazing. Well, you are right! Gosh it’s good.
*I use chia seeds for a little added fiber and omega-3s. I use hemp seeds for their added protein, fiber, and vitamin E. A quick google search will give you the full run-down of both!
In conclusion: I am realizing how much I like having a little butter at breakfast. I really think that the added fats have helped keep me satiated and more than anything a little goes a long way but adds major comfort and enjoyment.
