Ok, so I know calling this a recipe is really stretching things but I needed to share with you my most favorite summer breakfast. I mean, in all truth I’ll also eat this for lunch, dinner, midnight snack…

I’m not going to keep going because you get the drift. I love this ricotta tomato toast. I think the most important part of a recipe this simple is quality ingredients. I use freshly made ricotta from my local market and buy super ripe summer tomatoes. While I know I could eat this toast all year round I simply refuse to eat winter tomatoes. They always make me sad no matter how tempting they look. I’m always suckered in a few times during the winter and I’m also #firtworldproblem upset.

Since I have some basil that is still kicking (this never happens because I always kill it!) I decided to add it to the toast as well. It adds even more flavor and really gives it that summer taste. If basil didn’t usually die on me every time I tried to grow it I would be eating it every single day.

A few years ago I shared my summertime tomato sandwich which tells you how much I really love tomatoes on my sandwiches. BUT weirdly only when they are the star of the show. I don’t want them on my deli meat sandwiches, or my subs, or my salads. I just want them on this toast and that sandwich.

I’m not super high maintenance but I am when it comes to my tomato consumption.
