Ricotta and Honey Toast

This simple Honey Ricotta Toast with Pistachios is a light and refreshing appetizer. It’s perfect for a weekend brunch or to pair with a glass of wine before dinner.

This recipe is super simple to make and comes together in less than 15 minutes! It’s made with only a handful of ingredients and is absolutely delicious.

This ricotta toast is great for a brunch appetizer. It would be the hit of an easter or mother’s day brunch. It also works as an easy breakfast served with a side of fruit, or as a dinner appetizer with a glass of white wine or rosĂ©.

I love to make this simple, but you can try some of these other variations.
Add fresh herbs – This toast would be great with fresh thyme, rosemary, sage, or mint.
Add some fruit – Fresh pear slices, figs, strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries would all pair really well with the ricotta and honey. Dried fruit like cranberries or apricots would also be great!
Make it savory – Add some prosciutto.

While ricotta cheese offers a creamy and slightly tangy flavor, you can certainly use other soft cheeses like mascarpone or cream cheese as a substitute.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Ricotta and Honey Toast is best enjoyed fresh, but you can prepare the ingredients in advance and assemble them just before serving to ensure the bread stays crispy.

Can I make this recipe vegan-friendly?

Yes! You can use a dairy-free ricotta alternative and substitute maple syrup or agave nectar for honey to make this recipe vegan-friendly.
