Why We Love Ghee on Toast

Ghee is one of our favorite toast toppings. Soft and spreadable at room temperature, there’s nothing easier than slathering a dollop of rich-tasting ghee on toast.

Ghee is not only delicious, it’s good for you too. There are a number of benefits to eating healthy fats like ghee:

  • Ghee brings you the same nutrients as butter (fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins), without potentially irritating lactose and casein. Lactose and casein are removed from ghee in the clarification process.
  • Ghee and other healthy fats are filling and satisfying.
  • According to Ayurveda, ghee fuels digestive fire, which helps you digest and assimilate food better – including the bread and other toppings you eat it with.

We love sourdough as the foundation of ghee on toast. Thanks to the fermentation process, sourdough bread is more digestible than other types of bread, and has a delicious tangy flavor that makes our taste buds dance. Try these recipes with a slice of fresh sourdough – or use your own favorite bread, including gluten- and grain-free varieties.

Ghee-Fried Egg on Toast

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons plain or Rosemary Garlic ghee, divided
  • Small handful fresh baby arugula
  • 2 eggs, organic free-range if available
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Toast the bread to desired crispness. While bread is toasting, melt 1 tablespoon ghee in a small pan. When ghee is melted and hot, crack two eggs into the ghee and fry to your liking.
  2. When the toast is done, spread each slice with ½ Tbsp ghee, and top with baby arugula leaves. Slide a fried egg onto each toast. If there’s any ghee left in the pan, drizzle it over each toast, and then season with salt and pepper to taste.

Power Breakfast

  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 tablespoon ghee (plain or Rosemary Garlic)
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon
  • 1 small tomato, sliced
  • 2-4 tablespoons crumbled feta (optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Toast the sourdough bread to desired crispness. While toast is still warm, spread ghee on toast – ½ Tbsp per slice.
  2. Halve the avocado and distribute one half on each slice of toast, either in slices or mashed with the back of a fork. Layer with salmon, tomato, and feta, and season with salt and pepper to taste.

The Sweetest Thing

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar OR 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey (optional)
  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (plain, Maple or Chocolate)

Steps:

Combine cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and coconut sugar (if using) in a small bowl. If using maple syrup or honey, just combine the spices.

Before toasting, spread each slice of sourdough with 1 tablespoon ghee. Sprinkle ½ of spice blend over each slice. Toast in a toaster oven or under a broiler until ghee and spices start to sizzle and edges are crispy. If using maple syrup or honey, drizzle over your sweet ghee on toast, and enjoy!
