The ricotta toast trend is taking over. And you 100000% need to hop on board if you are a fan of all things ricotta cheese and TOAST! Which I am assuming you are if you are reading this blog post.

We recently came back from the Hamptons and we ate at one of our favorite spots, Crow’s Nest, for dinner. It is a staple when we are out there and one of those IYKYK when it comes to eating out east. They are known for their lobster pasta. But also for this insane whipped ricotta appetizer that Jord dreams of.

We were inspired to make our own and put a little Rachel + Jordan twist on it. Theirs uses pistachios on top and apricot jam and we instead made some candied walnuts (my favorite) and have actually eaten this with peach and apricot jam. You can’t go wrong with any jam though in my opinion. And we even toasted the bread almost as good as they do.

You guys are going to LOVE this recipe. I cannot wait to hear what you think!!

What ingredients you need to make whipped ricotta toast:

  • Whole milk ricotta cheese
  • Lemon
  • Raw walnuts, broken into pieces
  • Maple syrup
  • Bread of choice (we used sliced up ciabatta but anything works)
  • Butter, ghee or oil (for greasing)
  • Jam of choice (we love apricot or peach for this)
  • Za’atar seasoning to taste

How to make the dreamiest ricotta toast:

  1. Add the ricotta to a medium bowl and squeeze the juice from 1/2 a lemon
  2. Whisk the ricotta by hand (or use a mixer) for a minute or so or until the ricotta is smooth and spreadable (it is really to your liking)
  3. In a small skillet, pour maple syrup and add walnuts and cook over medium heat for a few minutes, stirring occasionally (make sure walnuts are coated in the syrup) then remove from pan and set aside once done
  4. Grease a pan with a little butter or oil and add slices of bread to crisp for a few minutes on each side
  5. Once bread is ready, smear some jam on top followed by the ricotta, candied walnuts and za’atar seasoning
