Ricotta Berry Toast

Are you ever bored with your breakfast choices? If you are you must try this. Delicious. My granddaughter shared this recipe with me although I have slightly changed her version. You could use the same method with different kinds of bread.
Depending on how many you want to serve adjust recipe as needed.
  • 2 croissants
  • Olive oil
  • 6 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Fresh berries of your choice, I used strawberries, blueberries, and mango
  • Honey for drizzling
  • Sea salt for sprinkling
  1. Cut croissants in half lengthwise and brush with olive oil.
  2. Sprinkle each half croissant with 1 teaspoon sugar.
  3. Place sugared side of croissants in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until golden in color and the sugar has caramelized. Remove and cool briefly.
  4. In a small bowl mix together ricotta, remaining 2 teaspoons sugar, and vanilla.
  5. Divide the mixture among the croissant halves spreading evenly.
  6. Pile on berries, drizzle with honey, and sprinkle with a bit of sea salt. Serve immediately.
  7. Serves: 2 - 4


  1. Just perfect. I can taste that crisp carmelized maple syrupy croissant with the lovely fruit juices. I can hardly wait for morning. Come to think of it, I won't! This is going to be my tea today. Oh why didn't someone post this before Mother's Day!

    Thank you <3

    1. I saw "honey" and immediately thought "maple syrup" because I am never without the 1 litre jug of the latter. Every time I empty one I get another.

    2. need to wait for Mother's Day. I've had this for breakfast a few times already. It's so delicious!
