Breakfast Asparagus, Radish and Ricotta Toast

I don’t think there is anything better than bread and butter for breakfast, but whenever I feel like serving something a little more refined, I make this easy asparagus, radish and ricotta toast recipe.

Topping a piece of bread with some kind of cheese or spread and dressing it with vegetables, fruits and/or meats – this type of cooking is at the core of French cooking.

I love the play on colors and shapes of this particular breakfast toast, and the mix of salty with sweet. It’s a grown up breakfast that pairs beautifully with a side salad or with bacon and sausages.

You can use any type of bread for this – I chose whole grain because of its rustic look and the fact that it’s healthier in general. Serve it on a wooden bread board to give this dish a French country side flair.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 46 asparagus spears (ends trimmed, chopped into thirds and thinly sliced lengthwise into 2-inch pieces)
  • 12 large radishes very thinly sliced (preferably on the thinnest setting of a mandolin)
  • 1/2 cup partly skimmed ricotta

  3. In a cooking tray, lay pieces of bread and spread ricotta on top.
  4. Add a few slices of radishes and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Top with asparagus slices (I like a criss cross pattern) and broil in the oven for 3 minutes.
  6. Take the toasts out of the oven and let them cool for a minute.
  7. Drizzle a little honey on top and serve immediately.

Notes

This Breakfast Asparagus, Radish and Ricotta Toast Recipe Is:
Low in cholesterol
High in calcium

You can substitute ricotta for cream cheese or some other creamy spread of your choice.
There is nothing more classically French than serving cheese, bread and cured ham on a wooden board. Think of a south of France rustic dinner with wine. C’est l’amour fou!
