garnished toast with mint and honey

Whipped Ricotta Toast with Roasted Peaches is the absolute perfect Summer breakfast! Crunchy bread loaded with creamy ricotta cheese and topped with naturally sweet roasted peaches! Fresh and delicious!

This recipe was originally published in June 2019 – I’ve since updated the photos and in August 2022, I updated the recipe instructions slightly!

Breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. I’ve always loved it! As a kid, I looked forward to waking up and eating bowl after bowl of sugary cereal (which I’ve limited to Saturdays, thank you very much!) or the beloved brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts!  In high school, I ate a lot of instant packets of oatmeal.

Now, I pretty much eat eggs everyday. However – as the seasons change, as do my taste buds. So, enter in the most Summery breakfast of all time: Whipped Ricotta Toast with Roasted Peaches!

Why You’ll Love This Toast:

Peaches are my favorite part of Summer. But, I do have a question: are you the type who eats a peach like an apple? Or do you peel the peach? I’m ALL in for peaches. I bite straight into it, not peeling the skin and I literally just let the peach juice run all down my face and hands. SO WORTH IT.

I love this breakfast, y’all. This Whipped Ricotta Toast with Roasted Peaches combines so many perfect flavor combinations.

The toasted bread is crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. It’s smothered in creamy and tangy and thick ricotta. It’s topped with super sweet, melt in your mouth fresh peaches.

Lastly, it’s garnished with a drizzle of honey and some fresh mint.

The mint gives it a zing that you didn’t even know you needed until you have a bite, you know?! IT’S ALL SO GOOD Y’ALL. So let’s get into how to make it!

Ingredients You Need:

  • crusty bread
  • fresh peaches
  • melted coconut oil
  • turbinado sugar
  • whole milk ricotta cheese
  • juice from a lemon
  • honey
  • mint

Best Toast Making Tips:

As always, I understand it’s not rocket science to make a piece of toast – HOWEVER! I always enjoy explaining exactly how I make my recipes so you guys can hopefully have a successful experience trying to replicate them!

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees and then slicing the peaches.

Pro tip: try not to eat half of them as you go along like I did. Place them on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spread them out evenly. Drizzle about 2 tbsp of melted coconut oil (or any neutral flavor high heat oil), a couple tablespoons of turbinado sugar and a pinch of salt. Toss to make sure each peach is evenly coated.

Place in the oven to roast for 15 minutes. Make sure to flip halfway through!

While the peaches are roasting, add about 1/2 cup of whole milk ricotta (don’t even play with the skim milk stuff plz) to a bowl. To the bowl, add the juice of ½ of a lemon and a drizzle of honey if desired. Set a timer for 1 minute and then stir/whip the ricotta vigorously until your timer goes off. You can do it! You’re strong!

Set this aside until the peaches are done.

Once the peaches are done, again, resist the urge to eat them all. Instead, toast a piece of bread (I prefer a crusty bread!) to your preferred toastiness. Then, load it up with the whipped ricotta and roasted peaches. Here I found that an extra drizzle of honey along with the garnish of fresh mint leaves really made the flavor profile exquisite!

    I love the way you breakfast!! Though, I bet this would also be lovely on Friday night with a nice glass of vino! Roasting fruit really brings out something special in them and I bet it’s so yummy paired with creamy ricotta and carby goodness. Cheers to a fab weekend ahead, my friend 🙂

    Breakfast is my fave meal of the day too, and I’m always up for trying new toast toppings. Peaches are just starting to show up around here, and I can’t wait to get some so I can make this summery toast!

    1. Yay!!! I know you’re not super into dairy…I wonder if you could make a cashew ricotta?! I would be super interested in that! 🙂

  3. Looks delicious!! So is it 1/2 c ricotta or 3/4 c? The amount on the ingredients list and instructions don’t match.

    I just finished eating this and I already can’t wait to make it again 😍 I’d never thought of roasting peaches, but it makes them so yummy! I mean, they’re already so good, but this really takes it up a notch with the kind of caramelized flavor. I used fresh mint from my windowsill planter and drizzled honey over the finished toast. I did my best to halve the recipe for one person – the ricotta mixture worked out perfect, and I found that I only needed one peach for two good-sized pieces of sourdough. So good!!

    1. Thank you so much, Joan! I’m so so glad you liked this recipe 🙂 I agree that the peaches do take on a caramelized flavor when they’re roasted…so good!!
