Gluten-Free Strawberry Toast

Sometimes I just stand in the kitchen looking at the food I have for inspiration.  I’ve seen strawberry toast on many brunch menus, usually served with goat cheese or ricotta.  I didn’t have either, but I did have some really nice fresh strawberries, and fresh homegrown basil, so I decided cream cheese would do the trick.  The results were delicious!  Check out this combination and let me know what you think!

  • Gluten-Free Bread (I used Udis Multigrain Sandwich Bread)
  • Cream Cheese
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Fresh Basil 
  • Balsamic Reduction


  1. Toast your bread.  
  2. I don’t like when cream cheese turns runny, so I always let my toast cool for a little bit before I put the cream cheese on.  
  3. Spread a layer of cream cheese on your toast to the desired thickness.  
  4. Slice your strawberries.  Place your strawberries on top of the cream cheese.  
  5. Slice your basil leaves into small slivers.  Sprinkle the fresh basil on top of the berries. 
  6. Finish with a drizzle of balsamic reduction.  
  7. Serve and enjoy!
