We take the versatile oven toaster back to its roots, but a notch higher. On the heels of the crowd favorite, avocado toast, our ricotta toast serves as a great alternative for days when you’re feeling naughty. Our toast seamlessly combines the fruity sweetness of apples, pungency of tuyo, and mild ricotta.
Don’t be daunted by the lengthy cooking period it takes to prepare the apple butter—once you’ve cooked it down, you can store leftovers in the fridge for future snacking.
So whether you’re feeling peckish for a light snack or if you’re looking for a grown up appetizer, our recipe for toast is an easy solution to your needs. We promise that all your friends and family will love this toast (plus no one needs to know how easy it was!).
