As the world's toast obsession persists, I can’t help but wonder why another piece of bread hasn’t been invited to the breakfast party. May I present to you, a more portable and versatile version of your favorite picture perfect avo toast: a good ol' grilled cheese.
Toast just isn’t what it used to be. It’s different in the best ways possible.
Salmon toast, avocado toast, peanut butter-banana toast, fruit and ricotta toast… these are all fabulous ways to dress what once was an ordinary slice of bread. Anything goes when it comes to toast, from Greek yogurt, to edamame, to hummus. While this breakfast concept is super tasty, textured, and versatile, its not conducive to rushing out the door while simultaneously shoving it into your mouth. Let’s not even talk about attempting to eat a topping-covered piece of toast while driving to work. I don’t know about you, but that’s how most of my mornings go.
People typically prepare two slices of toast for a full breakfast anyway. So why, friends, have we not combined our slices of bread to be toasted together? This simple step can add so much to your breakfast, like the capacity for more toppings and a serious convenience factor. What’s better than a warm breakfast on the go?
We should totally be applying our anything-goes-on-toast concept to the trusty grilled cheese. The food-obsessed side of me drools over the thought of a mozzarella and pimento cheese sandwich with bacon and jam. The nutritionist side of me is begging for an avocado, spinach, sprouts, and feta grilled cheese. Wherever you fall in this spectrum, there’s a toast combo that can be made into your ideal breakfast grilled cheese. Pick your favorite bread, include your favorite fruits and veggies, use butter or olive oil for a crispy crust, heck—leave out the cheese if you want (but I wouldn't recommend it). It's all up to you, but here’s our best inspiration for incorporating an epic grilled cheese into your breakfast routine:
