There are those rare days when you can binge watch your favorite series and indulge in a glass of wine and cheese. But then there are most days, when you’re running late before they even start! It’s on these hectic days that home-cooked meals feel impossible. But, believe it or not, they are quite possible — and it’s easier than you think. Don’t let your daily race against the clock sacrifice meal time. Below you’ll find a series of time-saving recipes to make in your Kalorik Toaster for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Our motto for getting you through the day? “Quick! Just Toast It!”
#1 Avocado Toast
Simple, delicious, and most likely to appear on your Instagram feed, Avocado Toast is an easy meal you can make in a pinch. There are only two must-have components: toasted bread and mashed avocados. You can go the classic route, with mashed avocado seasoned lightly with salt and pepper, or up your culinary game by adding salsa, lime, and topping with a soft-boiled egg. Buttery and creamy, avocado toast can feel almost sinful, but its 15 minute prep time and good-for-you health benefits are quite heavenly indeed.
#2 Homemade Peanut Butter Toast
The star ingredient of Homemade Peanut Butter Toast is wait for it, wait for it . . . peanut butter! Homemade peanut butter has the most perfect, creamy texture. Magic happens when you transform peanuts in the food processor. Watch as whole peanuts become the smoothest, creamiest nut butter you’ve ever seen. This barely sweet, peanutty-intense flavor is sheer joy by the mouthful. We promise you’ll want seconds of this down-home treat.
#3 Creamed Honey Butter Cinnamon Toast
This Creamed Honey Butter Cinnamon Toast is next-level culinary genius for those on the go, and it takes a mere five minutes to prepare. For this recipe, you’ll want to use the finest ingredients: bakery-fresh bread, European-style butter, and fragrant, high-quality cinnamon. In a small bowl, whip cream cheese and butter until combined and fluffy. Add honey and cinnamon until incorporated. Toast your bread and generously spread creamed honey butter on top. Feel free to add apple slices for a refreshingly crisp bite.
#4 Herb Cream Cheese Toast
Herb Cream Cheese Toast adds a burst of flavor to your standard cream cheese. With the addition of fresh herbs — oregano, dill, mint, parsley, and chives — this mixture will send your taste buds on a trip to absolute paradise. This recipe also calls for radishes and cucumber which offer a crisp, natural feel, while lemon zest rounds out the dish. In just ten minutes you’ll have a dreamy cream cheese delight on your hands. For a summery twist, swap out radishes and cucumber for heirloom tomatoes.
#5 Mezze Toast
Allow us to guide you on your maiden voyage to the Mediterranean where Mezze is commonplace. Mezze are a selection of small dishes served as appetizers that accompany a multi-course meal. Our Mezze Toast recipe offers a unique twist on this tradition, using generous amounts of hummus, cucumber, red onion, tomatoes, and feta cheese, on slices of your favorite bread. Serve with a drizzle of red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a pinch of salt.
