This Ricotta Toast with Three Jams is a deliciously sweet breakfast treat that can be ready in minutes. Three jams make this ricotta toast extra special, but feel free to use as many or as few as you like.
A while ago my mom told me about a treat that she and her friend enjoy. They spread goat cheese on toast and top it with fresh jam. Being a fan of goat cheese and jam, this sounded so good to me.
Flash forward to a week ago when I spotted a similar idea while scrolling on Instagram: Ricotta Toast with Three Jams. In my subsequent research, I discovered that ricotta toast is actually “a thing” and there are a variety of ways to serve it. Naturally, I had to give it a try.
I loved the idea of serving it with jam based on the idea from my mom and Instagram, so that’s what I did.
To start, I bought jam (from Freedom Farms) and freshly baked whole wheat sourdough bread (from Mediterra Bakehouse) at the farmers market. I also picked up a quality ricotta from the specialty cheese section at the supermarket.
Since this recipe only has three ingredients, you want to make sure you use the best possible ingredients. It will make all the difference.
How to Make Ricotta Toast with Three Jams:
Once I had my ingredients on hand, I used my mixer to beat the ricotta for about five minutes until it was creamy. I also added a pinch of salt.
If you have a sweet tooth like me, you may be tempted to add sugar. Don’t. I promise you it’s not needed.
With the ricotta ready, I toasted the bread. Then I spread the toast with some of the ricotta and topped that with blackberry jam, raspberry jam, and grape jelly.
Before it could get cold, I grabbed a cup of coffee and sat down to enjoy my treat!
I was fairly certain I was going to like it, and one bite was enough to know for sure. It is so good, my friends! The creamy ricotta has just a touch of tang and pairs perfectly with the freshly toasted bread and berry jam. Yum!
If you don’t like ricotta, you could certainly use goat cheese. If you don’t like either of those, try cream cheese!
However you fix it, this is an easy and creative way to make something unique and delicious for breakfast or an afternoon snack.

Toast the sliced bread.
Spread the ricotta on the toasted bread. You'll want about 2 tablespoons per slice depending on the size of your toast. (You will have leftover whipped ricotta. Just put it back in the container and store in the refrigerator.)
