Tomato Ricotta Toasts

Toast-for-dinner is one of my go-tos for nights when I have no time, or get home late, or feel incredibly uninspired. And then, every time we do actually have toast, it always feels like such a little treat!

It’s such a simple idea that once you make a few different variations, you’ll have them in your back pocket when you need a quick meal or are having one of those no-idea-what-to-make-for-dinner kind of nights.

How to Make Australian Folded Eggs

Did you know you needed a post to teach you how to make – basically – scrambled eggs? Me either. But then, we went to New Zealand on our honeymoon and had the greatest eggs and I’ve been trying to recreate them for nearly 4 years. And then I saw a few posts about Australian folded eggs and here we are – a recipe you never knew you needed for eggs.

I’m sure you’re thinking something like, Haileyyyyy why do I even need to make these? Well. Have you ever had eggs so creamy, so custardy, so perfect you could literally cry? That’s why you need to make these.

Until we had gone to New Zealand, I don’t think I ever realized how something like a scrambled egg could be so decadent. But they truly are! There are a few key secrets to making these utterly perfect eggs.

Mushroom Bruschetta Toasts Recipe

When we were traveling to Paris for New Years, we had a layover at Heathrow airport in London. It was one of those layovers that’s so long and you aren’t really sure what you’re going to do with yourself for so many hours, but not long enough that you could actually leave the airport and have a visit in London. Next time, eh?

While we were in London, I had the most incredible mushroom toast. It was the kind of breakfast-lunch-brunch dish that has had me jonesing for round two ever since! The meatyness of the mushrooms with the creaminess of the butter and the crunch of the bread…don’t mind me while I day dream about it for the next few minutes.

This month, we’ve been trying to eat a little bit lighter, so if you’ve joined us for a dinner party this month you’ll likely 1. have had this and 2. have had some meatless dishes. All week this week I’m sharing some of my fav meatless dishes for entertaining, so stay tuned! I love this as a nice little starter, especially when the bread is toasted in butter. I mean. It’s just sheer perfection for absolutely any topping.

I throw a pat of butter in a pan over medium heat and let these little guys soak up all that creamy, buttery goodness until they’re golden brown. I love when you can actually take a bite of bruschetta, and when you toast up the bread this way, the butter soaks into the center and makes it softer to take a bite.
