Prep Time:

Total Time:
10 mins
4 slices of toast


  • 4 (1 inch) thick slices brioche

  • 1 (4 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 4 teaspoons strawberry jam

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

  • 1 banana, sliced lengthwise and into half rounds


  1. Toast slices of bread. Spread each piece of toast with 2 tablespoons cream cheese. Spread 1 teaspoon strawberry jam over the cream cheese except on the upper left quarter.

  2. Make 3 rows of 3 blueberries each in the upper left quarter, creating "stars." Make 3 rows of banana pieces, starting adjacent to the middle row of berries. Place the remaining 2 rows beneath the last row of berries, creating the "stripes."

Cook's Note:

You could easily substitute ricotta, mascarpone, or goat cheese for the cream cheese. And if you can't find brioche, you can use challah or Texas toast.
