My brother (V's son) recently got on a sourdough bread kick and attempted to make his very first classic French boule with ancient, sprouted, fermented grains and wild yeast – he truly went all out. While I didn't get to try a slice of his surprisingly successful (and gorgeous) rookie loaf because he scarfed it down in a little less than 2 days, I was inspired to try a few "fancy" toast recipes in preparation for his next go at it. I chose to make a ricotta, berry version and a bleu cheese, pear version!

Both combos are a bit savory and a bit sweet. I want to know which "toast team" you're on – ricotta or bleu?! Find that lovely Pink Ikat Tea Towel here!

Honey-Lemon Ricotta Toast with Berries and Pistachios (inspiration here)

2 slices of sourdough (or any type of bread)
1/4-1/2 cup ricotta (I used full fat)
1/2 fresh lemon, juiced
1/2 tablespoon honey
Berries (I used black berries)
heavy sprinkling of coarsely chopped pistachios
1 teaspoon lemon zest

To Do:
Toast bread (I buttered mine and toasted in oven). While bread is toasting, whip together ricotta, lemon juice and honey until smooth and creamy. Spread ricotta moisture evenly over each piece of toast, then top with berries. Sprinkle each piece with pistachio pieces and lemon zest. I also drizzled honey over the top of mine ('cuz why not). Serves 2.

Bleu Cheese Toast with Warm Pears and Honey (inspiration here)

2 slices of sourdough (or any type of bread)
Bleu cheese of your choice
1 pear, sliced
Honey to drizzle
Heavy sprinkling of coarsely chopped walnuts

To Do:
Toast bread lightly (I buttered mine and toasted in oven). Layer toast generously with blue cheese and top with a layer of sliced pear. Toast again until cheese is fully melted. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and drizzle with honey. Serves 2.






This looks ridiculously good! So yummy.
