I liked toast before it was trendy, and I’ll continue to like it as it fades from the mainstream spotlight. Crunchy edges, golden brown outside, fluffy inside—I’m surprised it took so long for this food to become the It thing. Cheese toast is a variation, and wonderfully versatile. You can mix up the cheese blends, bread types, and even invite other flavors to the party. (Avocado anyone?) The best part is, all you need is a toaster, so you can whip up these bad boys at work, at home, virtually anywhere!
