Welcome to my latest toast obsession.
Toast is one of my favorite breakfasts because it’s easy to take to-go when we are on our way up to the hill or heading out to a trail.
And the next best thing about toast is that it can be customized in so many different ways.
Want something sweet? Something salty? Something with a little crunch? Something simple? Toast pretty much has any flavor or texture combination, and I am here for it.
One day, I wanted something sweet, but substantial, so I decided to mix a couple of my favorite toast toppings to create my new favorite way to eat crunchy warm bread. And I call it Vegan Cheesecake Toast… because, well, it reminds me of cheesecake.
And the best part, is that it’s incredibly easy and delicious.
To get started, I first made a simple loaf of bread using this recipe from Tastes Better From Scratch:
However, any of your favorite breads will work great.
Second, I got the main two ingredients from Trader Joe’s: Vegan Cream Cheese and Raspberry Preserves. While most Raspberry Preserves taste similar (obviously, fresh is best), I have found that the Trader Joe’s Cream Cheese tastes the best!
Lastly, you’ll need a little bit of olive oil and salt, which should already be in your cupboard, and then you’re ready to make your new favorite snack! The olive oil and sea salt somehow bring everything together, so don’t discard these ingredients!
