This heirloom tomato toast idea is simple yet flavorful and delicious. Grilled toast is topped with an onion & chive cream cheese and fresh heirloom tomatoes. Use dairy-free cream cheese or gluten-free bread, if needed.
As a stay at home, homeschool mom, we’re usually home most of the week. Each day, you’ll either find me helping the kids with school, working on new recipes, catching up with email, or filming/photographing for upcoming posts. Needless to say, we’re quite busy here throughout the week, so quick and easy snacks and meals are a lifesaver! We cut up fresh fruit, make some fresh muffins, or enjoy toast piled high with some yummy toppings. Avocado is the norm, but since the weather is warming up and the markets are overflowing with fresh summer produce, I’ve been topping our toast recently with juicy heirloom tomatoes! I just can’t get enough of these beauties either, as you can see by this pizza, salad, and galette.
I grilled our toast too, which gave it even more flavor, because I obviously can’t wait until it’s summer. Plus grill marks just SCREAM summer, don’t they?! Just wait another month or two though and you’ll probably hear me complaining that I can’t wait until fall because it’s too darn hot down here in the south. For some reason, I seem to always wish it were the opposite season…
Under the juicy tomatoes is a creamy chive & onion cream cheese (I use dairy-free, but feel free to use regular) It gives the toast so much flavor and kind of reminds me of eating an everything bagel—so yum! If you don’t have access to heirloom or feel like spending $$ on tomatoes, feel free to use regular slicing or Roma tomatoes. Enjoy!
