Sometimes there is nothing better than fresh fruit for breakfast, and what better way to enjoy it than on this beautiful ricotta toast! We love this toast because it uses buttery thick-sliced brioche bread that pairs so well with the fresh fruit. Plus it is sprinkled with granola for texture and drizzled with honey for sweetness.

You can cut up the fruit a day ahead and store it in an airtight container in your refrigerator. The ricotta toast itself should be eaten the day it is assembled. Otherwise, it will become soggy in the refrigerator and will not keep well.
