Quark and Jam on Toast

This is less of a recipe and more of a meal idea for anyone who wants a change to their toast routine.  I have found that I rarely have a day that does not start with toast.  It’s a breakfast staple for me.  As such, I have experimented with different toast varieties given the ingredients available to me and the time I have in the morning.  One of the reasons I love toast is that it’s an elegant, easy breakfast made with simple ingredients in limited time frames.  That is exactly what I need in the morning.

The quark in this recipe is a European-style soft cheese (similar to cream cheese), so it can easily be substituted for any other mild, cheesy spread of your choice.  Feel free to use any jam as well.  I cycle between blackberry and raspberry jams because they offer a sharp tart flavor that offsets the creaminess of the quark.  With a little salt, the combination is fantastic.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of bread (I used whole wheat bread)
  • 1-2 Tbsp. quark
  • 2 pinches salt (I used Malden flaky salt)
  • 1-2 tsp. jam or preserves
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • Cilantro, chopped (garnish)

Method

  1. Toast the bread slices
  2. Layer quark, flaky salt, and jam onto the toast
  3. Top with avocado and cilantro
  4. Serve and enjoy
