Toast Toppings

I love toast.  But, like many things, it's really what goes on top of the toast that makes it so wonderful.  This morning I had the most lovely darkly toasted whole grain bread with tahini and some of the first local hydroponic tomatoes of the season.  With a little salt and freshly ground black pepper, this was perfection.

Other mornings I want a sweeter toast, though.  So sometimes I prefer homemade jam.  There's always something delicious to serve on toast!

Anyone else read Nigel Slater's book entitled Toast?  A great book of food memories, including plenty about toast!

Here's a list of some of my favorites:
Mashed avocado with lemon, salt and pepper (plain guacamole)
Baked beans
Peanut butter and jelly
Tahini and kim chi
Earth Balance margarine and miso
Earth Balance, cinnamon and sugar

What's your favorite toast topping?

Avocado with salt and pepper is the best! Or, like, avocado with red pepper and maybe even olives. (The problem with my toast is that it tends to turn into a sandwich.) Also: apricot jam for the win.

I want this NOW. Keen eye for the good tomatoes!

My wife's hummus!

I eat a lot of peanut butter toast, and lately, a lot of apple butter toast.

BUT, my all-time favorite toast topping is Hope creamery butter, and nothing else!

Peanut butter and honey is yummy!

I don't think much on the savory side but love the tahini and kimchi idea.
