Good and nutritious breakfast starts with yummy toasts made with fresh bread topped with delicious toppings. Today, we're going to make a toast made from toasted baguette slices loaded with blanched spinach drenched in melted cheddar cheese. It is served hot with creamy and lemony mayonnaise bowl. You can also serve them as toasted baguette appetizers at the weekend brunch. Instead of using cheddar cheese, you can also make toasted baguette with goat cheese. If baguette bread is not available, one can use regular bread slices too. Make sure you do not blanch spinach too much else you may not get the desired result. Let's make this scrumptious toast in a few easy steps for our loved ones.
