Ricotta Toast Is Trending on TikTok (and These Are 15 of Our Favorite Recipes)
TikTok has given us game-changing food trends like baked feta pasta, ranch pickles and pesto eggs. Next on our to-eat list is ricotta toast. While we’re no stranger to this dish (and we’re betting you aren’t either), creative sweet, savory and vegan iterations are popping up all over our “For You” page and we can’t wait to try them. Here are 15 of our favorite TikTok ricotta toast recipes to whip up at home.
3. Mushroom Ricotta Toast
Garlic, shallots and a variety of mushrooms are sauteed in oil, then cooked until jammy in soy sauce, brown rice syrup (you could substitute honey) and broth. Once the ‘shrooms are layered atop the ricotta toast, finish them with chopped chives and a drizzle of olive oil.
5. Berry Ricotta Toast
Macerating berries (aka mixing them with sugar and/or liquid) turns them soft and extra juicy. Here, summer strawberries, blueberries and blackberries get the special treatment before being plopped atop ricotta toast (though they’d be just as delicious on vanilla ice cream).
9. Ricotta Scramble Toast
Instead of simply topping the ricotta toast with a sunny-side up egg, the egg and cheese are whisked together to make the fluffiest scramble of all time. Go the extra mile by rubbing the toast with sliced garlic and sprinkling it with dried herbs before topping it.
11. Blistered Tomato Ricotta Toast
It only takes a few minutes for cherry tomatoes to turn juicy and slightly charred in a hot oiled pan. And since they’re at peak deliciousness right now, all they’ll need is a sprinkle of salt and herbs. (BTW, Brightland’s Rosette garlic olive oil would be great for drizzling on top.)
15. Baklava Ricotta Toast
We’re all for pushing this breakfast trend into dessert territory. Cinnamon-kissed chopped walnuts and pistachios (we’d toast them in the oven for a few minutes first) are sprinkled onto a slice of ricotta toast before being doused with honey. Bonus points for crowning it with crumbled phyllo.
