Reminiscent of a creamy berry cheesecake, this toast is a wonderfully sweet, tarty, and creamy way to start the day. Adding fresh mint is an unexpected but very worthwhile finish touch!

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 to 4 slices bread (any bread you prefer; challah works well)
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • Optional: fresh mint, chopped

How to Make It

  1. In a saucepan combine the blackberries, blueberries, cornstarch, vanilla, sugar, and water. Cover and cook over a medium-low heat. Once simmering, mash and mix well. Set aside.

  2. Toast the bread.

  3. Slather each slice with goat cheese and top with a spoonful of the warm berry mixture. Sprinkle with some chopped fresh mint if you have it.
