Delicious Variations for Your American Flag Toast

  • Substitute for Red Fruit: Out of strawberry preserves or raspberry jam? No problem! Place red fruit pieces on your your toast.
  • Enhance the Base Flavor: For extra flavor, mix a splash of vanilla extract or a squeeze of lemon juice into the cream cheese or spread before assembling your toast.
  • Add a Sweet Touch: Drizzle a little honey over your fruity flag for a sweeter treat. If you’re in the mood for something truly decadent, use a slice of buttery cinnamon toast as your base.

These variations keep your American Flag Toast exciting and allow you to tailor it to your taste preferences and available ingredients. Enjoy experimenting and finding your favorite version!
