Toast Your Way Through the Day: All About Breakfast Toasts

For the longest time, we’ve been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is an old tale passed on from generations, and the belief still goes on to this day.

Although there is research that suggests there are  both advantages and disadvantages to eating breakfast, dietitians still debate that eating in the morning fuels your body for the day. This encourages physical activity through energy levels and in the most basic terms, fills you up for longer, discouraging the need to snack between meals and eat more later on during the day or that same evening. In short, the benefits lend themselves to encouraging a healthy, balanced diet. We pride ourselves on providing a breakfast delivery service in Dubai that would allow you to have your daily dose of your favourite breakfast.

Pink Beetroot, Hummus and Avocado Toast from The Breakfast  Shop
It’s not just about taste that’s on your side; there’s science too. When bread is toasted, it goes through a process called the Maillard reaction – this means that the sugar on the bread reacts with the heat, creating new compounds and, in turn, creates delicious flavours. Neat, huh!

Small meals can have a huge impact on your day. The benefit of small meals comes from keeping your blood sugar levels even, which in turn stops cravings, meaning you’re more likely to eat less foods that are bad for you, less often, which is why we’re really into toasts. There are so many options you can have with it!

Below, we’re covering 20 toast breakfast dishes that will leave you satisfied and filled.

20 Must-Try Toasts for Your All-Day Breakfast

Mushroom Toast

We’ve decided to start this list with an easy one.Mushroom toast is exactly what it says on the tin, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less yummy andperfect for your healthy breakfast menu 
We know some people aren’t that keen on mushrooms (you either love them or you hate them!), but they’re high in vitamins and high in fibre. This, coupled with a round or two of whole meal bread and garnished with fresh herbs, you’re getting a solid intake of goodness. Enjoy!

Avocado Toast

Mushroom Breakfast Toast

Does it get more classic or more suited to 2020 than this dish? Avocado has been the ingredient of the decade and there’s a reason for it. It’s tasty and really easy to make into something delicious - as you can see here. Crush your avocado and add it to a delicious sourdough bread and top with red pepper flakes for a flavourful treat. The texture of avocado is both smooth and chunky. If you think the chunkier the better, you can start mashing your avocado today!

Tomato and Goats Cheese Toast

If you thought the first two dishes were simple, we’ve at least made this one a little more experimental. Tomato and goats cheese toast is a really funky, simple and flavoursome breakfast meal, whilst still being healthy. Placing the tomato on top of the goats cheese adds a fruity flavour and changes up the texture from crumbly and dry to somewhat moist and and easier to eat.

Everything to Me Toast

The Breakfast Shop - Everything to me Toast
You can’t guess what this is from the name, can you? Well, not unless nutella and banana on toast is everything to you. Because it is to us, too! Really simple, but a really delicious morning treat and quick to make to boot. Low-key since a lot of people aren’t really into banana but be prepared to be mind-blown. Eaten in moderation, this dish is delicious and fits in one of your fruit portions, too.

Whipped Feta, Beetroot and Poached Egg on Toast

Looking for something a little more ambitious and complex? Well then, look here. All you need are the ingredients and the ability to whip the feta, yogurt and lemon juice together to create the base on the toast, and the complex bit is done. Slice the beetroot across the top of the poached egg and feta whip, place it on top of your toast of choice and you’re all sorted. A multitude of textures and flavours (runny, creamy and crumbly!) make this a wonderful meal to set you up for a big day.

Tex-Mex Cheese on Toast

This hearty breakfast, packed with avocado, onion, egg, cheddar and chili, got you a bunch of tasty and interesting flavours to kick-start your breakfast routine. The cheese on toast holds together the different components, and adding a little sauce too can keep this meal from being a little too dry.

Smashed Broad Beans on Toast

Okay, so if you want to show your adventurous self while trying to stay on the healthy and exciting side, then this dish is for you. Broad beans are healthy, full of nutrients and what’s more, you can have them by the boatload! Meaning you can fill yourself up enough to last longer without a snack during the morning. Simply add the broad beans into a food processor, adding a little garlic and lemon juice, toast the toast and you're good to go. It’s a perfect and interesting breakfast meal with a palatable, chunky texture.

Roasted Tomato and Avocado Toast

Even though we’ve already had avocado on the list, we still think this breakfast is well worth your time. Adding tomato to the classic avocado and toast dish adds extra flavour, texture and freshness. Filling yourself up with a substantial portion means you’re likely to last until lunch without eating any extra unhealthy snacks in between meals. That little smidge of cayenne pepper and lemon juice adds a little extra kick to the dish, too.

Truffled Cheese on Toast

Cheese on toast is a huge favourite because it’s an easy, quick and delicious alternative to other more time-consuming breakfast meals. The difference here is that we at The Breakfast Shop include Truffled Cheese Toast - The Breakfast Shop a special ingredient – the truffle oil, of course! Adding the oil gives the dish an extra splash of excitement and keeps it all from growing dry. Trust us, you won’t regret it. Beans on Toast Baked beans are a classic accompaniment, but they can also be used as a main part of a meal. A warm, hearty dish that’s quick to make, beans on toast is perfect for someone who wants to add a more British feel to their breakfast meal. Also, an added advantage, beans are full of goodness and help improve your gut health and cholesterol levels. Including these in your daily diet is never a bad idea.

Strawberry Fields Toast

Looking for a bit of healthy sweetness in your meal? Look no further because butter and strawberries on toast with added sunflower seeds will give you just that. The dish has taste and texture of peanut butter and jelly on toast, but half the calories. As a great source of vitamin E and magnesium, and a whole lot of enjoyment, this tasty toast is definitely worth a try.

Red, White and Blueberry Toast
Blueberry Toast for Breakfast

Another very “berry” breakfast, this time a mix of blueberries, raspberries and honey, all atop a toast of your choice. Find the time to fit this goody into your day and gain the energy, taste and enjoyment that you need to push yourself through your heavy schedule. The ricotta adds protein and if you have seeded bread, it’ll add up to the minerals and vitamins you need for a healthier body. Don’t feel like you have to stick to these berries, either. Feel free to customise your own breakfast.

You either add more fruits to the toast, or maybe a little honey or maple syrup – your choice!

Scrambled Egg on Toast

You’d never have guessed that we would have gotten this far down the list without including scrambled eggs. It’s probably the easiest meal on this list, and if you learn to make it well, it can be delicious and good for you. Depending on how you like your scrambled eggs, you can add cream to make it creamier, or have less to make it drier. However you want them, they’re certainly a great topping to your toast.

Smoked Salmon on Toast

Smoked salmon is the perfect breakfast meal for seafood lovers. A little more exciting than a normal breakfast, but healthier and so easy to make, too! Change the toasted bread up to a toasted bagel for something a little more fresh and new, or even add a little cream cheese to it for additional soft texture to the rough bagel. Surely, this has to be on your list when you want to have something different from your usual breakfast dish. 

Peanut Butter and Apple Toast

The great thing about this dish is that although peanut butter can often be dry, the juices from the apple makes this a breakfast full of taste and zest. Adding apple to the toast turns it from a lame, tame quick breakfast into something that sparks life into your meal. Add one of your allotted fruit or veg portions, too, if you’re really starting your day with a boost. If you’re not a fan of apple (some of us aren’t!), then you can exchange it for something that suits your taste like banana, strawberry or something similar!

Cottage Cheese and Honey Toast

cottage-cheese-honey-toastIf you’re looking to lose weight and gain an intake of vitamins, goodness and minerals, then cottage cheese is the right place to come. Adding a bit of honey gives a little sweetness to the flavour of the cheese and transforms this breakfast from something a little bland to a meal that perks up your morning. Many people often confuse cottage cheese with standard cheese, but this isn’t right at all. Whilst eating standard cheese is bad for you if you eat too much, cottage cheese is actually perfect for your diet. Choose brown or seeded toast for a healthier kick.

Fig and Gorgonzola Tartines

This is one of our most interesting dishes on the list because it’s packed full of flavour, goodness and incredible texture. Aside from the fig and gorgonzola, you’ve also got a taste of black pepper, truffle honey and thyme in there too. With a prep time of 15 minutes, this is easily something you can make before heading to work or taking on a session at the gym.


French Toast with Blueberry Compote

Maybe you’re just in need of treating yourself, then maybe this is the right breakfast for you! French toast is easy to make, and even though it isn’t totally healthy, this meal at the beginning of the day will make you well-stocked until lunch time or maybe even beyond. The blueberry compote adds sweetness and flavour, which helps you avoid sweet snacks that you may crave as the day goes on. But more than anything, we are sure that like us, you also curb the healthy dish sometimes and just eat what makes you happy.

Caprese Toast

The addition of pesto to this mozzarella and tomato toast give an additional tang and taste sensation. If you’re not a fan of sweetness with breakfast (we can understand why), then this is a perfect alternative. Always worth ordering!


Smoked Cannellini Beans on Garlic Toast

Under 500 calories and ready to make in 15 minutes, we reckon that this vegan option will become a staple of your breakfast routine. And why not? This is another great meal that allows you to push aside the usual routine options for breakfast, and start your day with something savoury and appetising.

Choosing Your Own Breakfast Toast

Everyone can make a toast but not everyone can make it that delicious and satisfying for breakfast. You don’t want to go too overboard on bread (and fillings), knowing there are plenty of options.

If all of the way through this, you’ve been thinking about having a toast for your next meal - we understand. That’s why here at The Breakfast Shop, we offer the best breakfast delivery in Dubai, straight to your door. We make ourselves busy preparing our all-day breakfast so you don’t have to.
