How to Build your Easy Gourmet Toast
It is all about layering the flavors for this “recipe” (if you can even call something this simple a recipe). First, use your favorite bread or whatever you have on hand. Sourdough works especially well and we love a dark seedy bread, but even sandwich bread will do! Toast your bread to your liking and top it with prepared Cheeseball & Appetizer Mix (make it with regular or low-fat cream cheese and add butter or leave it out entirely). In the photograph above we used the Bruschetta Mix.
Next, stack the top of your toast with fresh veggies, a protein source, or something unexpected like a jam; here we used halved cherry tomatoes. Lastly, sprinkle your toast with the topping packet.
For a final touch, we drizzled the top of this toast with balsamic glaze. This step is optional but highly recommended for this flavor combination.
