Toast Tuesday has become a real thing. And all though it's Friday and not Tuesday, I figured... what the heck. I'll still do Toast Tuesday anyway. That's just how good this toast is. The idea behind Toast Tuesday is to make the very best and most amazing piece of toast ever using interesting ingredients that aren't generally found on your 'average' toast.
Who says toast has to be boring? It totally doesn't need to be!
This is one fully loaded toast if ever there was one; making it perfect for a lunch time sort of snack or light lunch bite. I'm calling this 'mediterranean' since I've added on some kalamata olives, hummus, and just enough feta cheese to give that familiar salty greek inspired flavor.
My mom is always asking me for lunch time inspiration as that seems to be her 'trouble area' when it comes to decide what to eat. So, this one is for her and people just like her that struggle with lunchtime meal solutions. This is something new and different that breaks the norm of 'lunch'.
I've got to say that this toast is pretty hearty, being piled up high with hummus, avocado, tomatoes, olives, egg, and even a little bit of feta. I used a really nice multi-grain toast for the base here since I wanted it to be able to stand up to the amount of stuff being piled up on top of it.
I like to add a side of cottage cheese and some fruit to complete this as a light sort of snacky lunch time meal, or post workout protein loaded treat as an unlikely way to enjoy a hardboiled egg. It's definitely filling enough for me to enjoy as part of a lunch.
If you're feeling up to it, you can always make your own Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, or if you're more of a time saver, store-bought would be fine too! Although homemade is always my personal preference. Either way you go though, it'll be fantastic.
