Cinnamon Toast [Zack]

We had a snow day and I therefore wasn’t able to drive into work. I had no intention of going out in the elements to get ingredients to make myself a breakfast. I looked around my kitchen and found the ingredients to make a nostalgic breakfast treat that my mom used to make for us as kids: cinnamon toast and cheese toast!

My mom would make this a as a treat on weekends. She’d give us 2 pieces of toast with melted cheddar (for protein, but probably more importantly to clear her conscience) along with the cinnamon toast. And always some type of fruit too. The butter melts together with the sugar to create a crispy and delicious salty-sweet combination on the toast. Cinnamon adds a nice dimension to the whole thing.

This is definitely the most simple recipe that I’ve posted so far on the website. All you have to do is make sure that you don’t burn the toast in the oven.


Set your oven to broil, and get a baking tray out. Slice off a few pads of butter and put them on the toast. Sprinkle your sugar to lightly coat the whole piece of toast, then hit it with the cinnamon. If you’re in the mood for some cheese toast, put some sliced cheese on bread and add it to your baking tray.

Broil the toast until the corners are lightly browned, the cheese has melted, and the sugar has melded with the butter to make a crispy light-brown crust. Serve with some semblance of fruit so your parents don’t give you the stink-eye.

  • Whole wheat or white bread
  • A few thin pads of butter per piece
  • ~2 tsp of white or brown sugar per piece
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon on top
  • Cheddar or Emmental cheese (optional)
