Fresh Berry Toasts with Sweet Ricotta

By  Sue Lau |  Palatable Pastime

Fresh Berry Toasts with Sweet Ricotta is my recipe of the day for  #BerryWeek. Berries are quite popular  this month  as  we are in part of their biggest season. Already  with  lots of  blueberries and strawberries, then moving into full  on raspberry,  gooseberry, and blackberry  season.

Fresh Berry Toasts with Sweet Ricotta

This recipe is something  I like  to  do for breakfast, since it is easy, quick,  and uses lots of  fruit. I am habitually a light eater in the mornings as I prefer to sip lots of  coffee and just nibble  on small things until two cups  of coffee in I become remotely human.

I used  to be  quite a heavy smoker decades ago  but quit (thank goodness for that!).  It  was something people who work in food tend to do a  lot (smoke) and  breakfast in predawn hours often consisted of coffee and cigarettes. It doubled down  on the unhealthy, didn’t it?

After giving up  the cigs, I found food to  put in  its place.  You may  have heard people  gain weight after quitting  and this is why. The  hands get lonely.

Certainly a nice breakfast even  if light is much more  healthy, especially with  fresh fruit and high protein cheese.

Sweet Brioche or Cook’s Choice for Bread

I used a packaged brioche but  don’t be shy  with your bread—use what you like,  whether it is whole wheat, seven grain, sourdough, French or even  rye. I  wouldn’t even blink if you had pullman loaf white bread (which I keep around for  BLT’s or  grilled cheese).

But ricotta rounds this out, and it is  perfectly nice when sweet.  You can have this  on the days  when you aren’t doing avo toast or are taking a break from eggs.

I eat lots of eggs. High  protein, low carb. I don’t really eat cereal. So eggs appear a lot  (they cook devilishly fast!) but old gets old. So  toast it is! Enjoy.
