For years, my breakfast routine consisted of two items: coffee and oatmeal. I ate oatmeal nearly every day and after time, I became bored. I like routine but I also crave a bit of change. I found my cravings tended towards savory. And so, toast became my norm. This romesco toast is about as close to an avocado toast recipe as I’ll get on the site (which is to say, not super close). I’m obsessed with romesco sauce and I don’t use the word obsessed lightly. The perfect balance of smoked paprika, vinegar, nuts, and roasted red pepper has me using romesco on everything.
This particular toast is a hybrid of a few things I make. It’s a bit open-face grilled cheese sandwich meets fried egg. Occasionally I’ll add greens but for the most part I make it as written. Add a cup of coffee and this is my ideal breakfast!
