Peach & Ricotta Toast

While I can’t deny a savory piece of toast (avocado toast with a sunny side up egg is my absolute favorite), don’t ignore your sweet tooth when brainstorming your next creation. The next time you stop at the grocery store or fruit stand to find the most perfect peaches, pick up a few extras so you can make this peach and ricotta toast.

Toast four thick slices of whole-grain bread (you could definitely switch things up and use cinnamon raisin or sourdough for more flavor) in your Hamilton Beach® toaster. The Keep Warm 4 Slice Long Slot Toaster features two extra-wide long slots to accommodate artisanal breads or longer slices of bread for your toast-making needs.

Slather a mixture of ricotta cheese, confectioner’s sugar, and lemon juice on top of your toast. Then top with peaches soaked in brown sugar, rum, and salt. Sprinkle your toast with a little bit of fresh mint and you’re ready to serve.

This toast recipe perfectly showcases our favorite summer stonefruit. The slightly sweet ricotta and rum-soaked peaches are the perfect topping for the crispy, crunchy toast. When you have plenty of ripe peaches in your kitchen begging to be used, skip the cobbler and have a handheld bite to eat.
