I’m sure by now you guys have seen a billion avocado toast combinations out there. Avocado toast is so tasty and definitely a personal favorite, but it seemed to come into popularity more recently and left me wondering what happened to the classics like cinnamon toast, cheese toast and simple toast with jelly and butter!
As a kid, one of my favorite after-school snacks was cheese toast. I’d place a slice of cheese on a piece of bread and stick it in the toaster oven until the cheese melted. It was so darn good and simple and while I still love a classic piece of cheese toast from time to time, today I’m excited to team up with The Laughing Cow® to #ReinventSnacking and put a fun new spin on traditional cheese toast!
If you guys have been reading PBF for a while, you already know I’m a big fan of The Laughing Cow® spreadable cheese wedges. In my first trimester and the beginning of my second trimester, scrambled eggs with a wedge or two of The Laughing Cow® cheese stirred in was one of my biggest cravings! (It’s a winning combination you must try if you haven’t already. So creamy and cheesy!)
Today’s cheese toast combinations are perfect for when hunger strikes in the middle of the dreaded mid-afternoon slump. They feel a little more special than typical snack foods and a crisp slice of toast topped with a creamy wedge of cheese and some additional toppings creates the perfect snack time pick-me-up!
Below you will find a few cheese toast combinations I put together with The Laughing Cow® Creamy Asiago cheese wedges.
Cheese Toast: 5 Ways
I started with a base of multigrain bread and, after toasting it lightly, spread a wedge of The Laughing Cow® Creamy Asiago cheese on top before adding the following toppings:
- Smoked Salmon with Scallions
The inspiration for this combination came from the traditional breakfast of bagels with cream cheese and lox but I revamped a bit for a snack time delight! Salmon is my favorite fish, so anytime I can incorporate it into my diet, I’m a fan. The flavor is fantastic and it’s such a great source of healthy omega-3s!
- Sliced Hard Boiled Egg with Red Onion, Salt and Pepper
The egg salad lover in me thought this combination was a winner. The red onion gave this cheese toast the perfect amount of zip! It was also incredibly satisfying thanks to the punch of protein from the egg.
- Thinly Sliced Pear with Salted Sunflower Seeds
I’ve always been a sucker for sweet and savory flavor combinations, so adding a punch of sweetness in the form of fresh fruit slices to a zesty piece of asiago cheese toast was right up my alley. And the sunflower seeds provided the perfect salty crunch!
- Tomato Slices with Pepperoni and Basil
Pizza tiiiime! I loved this cheesy combination and couldn’t get enough of the slightly spicy pepperoni and fresh basil. I think this one might be a hit with kids, too!
- Cucumber with Thinly Sliced Radish, Salt and Pepper
Anytime I can incorporate vegetables into my snacks in a delicious way, I am a fan. The crisp, refreshing cucumber and radish slices were a wonderful addition to a tasty slice of creamy asiago cheese toast!
