You all know I love strawberries. My favorite picking place lost their pick-your-own field in a nasty early spring storm but I went down on Friday to Northfield and got two flats of pre-picked. It was still cheaper than getting them at the grocery store and much tastier.
After 14 jars of jam, we’re scrambling to get them finished up before they get too mushy. Lots of strawberry shortcake and spinach strawberry salad. Thinking back to a breakfast that YA ordered at the Highland Grill last January (ricotta and jam on toast), I came up with this recipe this morning:
Strawberry Cheese Toast (for 1)
1 slice whole wheat bread, toasted
2 slices of pepper jack cheese
4 T. strawberries, mashed up a bit
2 T. blueberries
Put slices of cheese on top of the toast. Spread mashed strawberries over the cheese and then sprinkle blueberries on top.
It was fabulous – I’m having it again tomorrow!
