Fancy Toast

Fancy Toast 2

Just the name of this quick snack makes it sound exotic and exciting – enough so to get a picky preschooler to try out food combinations he or she might not otherwise attempt. You can serve any of the following combinations on toasted baguette slices, but we like to use crispbread crackers from Ryvita. Double up portions and you’ll move any of these combos from a snack to a meal.

Tomato and Cheddar Fancy Toast

  • 2 crispbread crackers or baguette slices
  • 1 tablespoon vegan mayonnaise
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 2 ounces sliced Daiya cheddar
  • 1 tomato
  1. Spread the mayonnaise evenly over the cracker slices, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  2. Thinly slice the cheddar, and arrange the slices on the crispbread. Thinly slice the tomato and divide the slices evenly over the cheddar.
