Cottage cheese can be transformed into a delectable, protein-packed toast topper that’s both satisfying and nutritious. Cottage Cheese Toast Slices are a versatile and scrumptious option for easy breakfast, brunch, or even a quick and healthy snack.
Why Cottage Cheese Toast?
- Protein Powerhouse
Cottage cheese is known for its high protein content. It’s an excellent way to fuel your day and keep you feeling full longer. This makes Cottage Cheese Toasts a fantastic choice for those looking to add more protein to their diet.
- Creamy and Versatile
Cottage cheese has a creamy texture that pairs perfectly with various toppings. You can get creative with sweet or savory options, making it a versatile choice for any meal.
Not only is cottage cheese a great source of protein, but it’s also rich in essential nutrients like calcium, vitamin B12, and selenium. This adds an extra layer of health benefits to your toasts.
How to Make – The Basics
To create your Savory Cottage Cheese Toast Slices, you’ll need a few simple ingredients:
- Slices of your favorite bread (whole grain, sourdough, or gluten free, you choose!). I like to use whole wheat bread.
- Cottage cheese (full fat or low fat cottage cheese, depending on your preference).
- Ideas for topping the cheese toast: sliced tomatoes, cucumber, smoked salmon, and/or avocado; microgreens, sprouts, red onion slices, or fresh herbs; extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice and/or vinegar; sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, and/or red pepper flakes; seeds, chia, hemp, sunflower and/or sesame seeds.
The toast slices are served as open-faced, meaning you can have a lot of fun with the toppings. And, you can make sweet versions: drizzle the toast with honey or maple syrup. I like to go with fresh fruit: berries, sliced peaches and/or sliced melon, honey or maple syrup, and seeds: chia, hemp, sunflower and/or pumpkin.
