Strawberry & Basil Ricotta Toast

I love waking up to a sweet + savory breakfast!

I bought 1/2 of a rye loaf from my weekly grocery haul. It's the perfect size because by the time I try to get through an entire loaf it ends up going bad. SO check with your local grocery stores to see if they sell 1/2 loafs.

My strawberries are already pre-sliced (this is part of my Sunday prep) to help save time for my rushed mornings.

Simply toss two slices of bread in the toaster...

 Spread 1/4 cup of ricotta between the two slices...

Add sliced strawbs + cut 1 leaf of fresh basil, you can also drizzle honey or balsamic glaze if you'd like

I'm pairing this with my usual coffee +



  • 2 slices of rye loaf
  • 1/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 tbsp slice strawberries (about 4-5)
  • 1 basil leaf
  • Optional: honey or balsalmic glaze


  • Toast bread slices, spread ricotta evenly and top with fruit + herbs
