From Alcoholic Chocolate Spreads to Superfood-Infused Jams

Put a flavorful spin on a classic breakfast item with these delightfully unexpected toast toppers. Toast has always been a go-to meal because it is simple and delicious. However, the addition of a crunchy nut butter or a creamy avocado spread can help elevate your toast to a whole new level.

An easy way to upgrade toast is with an unusual savory topper such as a tangy onion spread, a spicy ghost pepper jelly or even a salty bacon cream cheese. These mouthwatering flavors diverge from traditional sweet toppings to deliver unexpected flavor combinations.

Another fun way to take toast in a whole new direction is to add a little alcoholic kick. From boozy margarita spreads to alcoholic banana jams, there are both sweet and savory options for infusing a bit of booze into an unusual toast topper.

Of course, for those who might be a little less adventurous, there are sweet artisanal jams and nutty superfood spreads that mimic classic flavors, but yield with a subtle twist. These traditional toppers along with the more unusual spreads offer new ways of updating a beloved breakfast staple.
