Using a pastry cutter that is slightly larger than the goats' cheese rounds, cut a circle from each slice of bread.
Brush the bread rounds with a little olive oil, scatter with a few thyme leaves and season well.
Place the bread rounds on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes or until crisp and a light golden colour.
Remove the bread from the oven and spread 1 tsp pesto over half the rounds.
Divide the smoked trout among the pesto-topped bread, top with the cheese rounds and season well with black pepper.
Top the cheese with the rest of the bread circles. Bake the toasties in the oven for another 5 minutes, until the cheese has just started to soften slightly.

Houmous, black olives, rocket and sesame seeds on toast. A delightful way to remind you of holidays in the Greek Isles ... even if you've never been!
If you haven't noticed, I have a slight obsession with houmous. It's so versatile and can be filled with all sorts of flavours such as lemon, garlic, pepper & onion. In this image I had simply added olives, rocket and sesame seeds, so a very Greek feel about this dish!
I originally saw this idea on Jamie Oliver's Food Tube and at first and I wondered what all the fuss was about. However after trying it, it is my favourite small lunch to go to when in a hurry. Houmous, pomegranate and rocket are always a staple in my kitchen as they taste so fantastic together. Try it!
Move over avocado, here are other luscious green wares to have on our toast ....
Spiralize 1 courgette, sauté in a pesto sauce for around 3 minutes just to heat really. Then add fresh garden peas (or place frozen peas in a mug of boiling water while you sauté the courgette).
It takes just minutes to make, and gives you a plate of green yuminess!
Yet another brilliant combination of eggs and avocado on toast. This time from Sisley at Sew White. She sprinkles the finished affair with just a dash of chilli flakes for an extra kick. | This is sure to keep you going till lunch time (or dinner time!)
What better way to start the day of off than with the classic avocado on toast. It seems every health fanatic and food blogger is going mad for avocado but with good reason! Packed with healthy fats, this green bombshell is a great way to fill yourself up. By ditching sugary breakfasts, and replacing it with healthy fats and carbs, you will feel fuller longer and won't be craving a chocolate bar by 10am.
This is a perfect summer-time breakfast. Don't allow yourself to be put off by making your own 'jam'. It is no fuss at all, it takes just a few minutes and can be kept for up to a fortnight. Here's how:
Heat the berries in a small pan (can be frozen or fresh) for 5 minutes until warmed and start to break down.
Add the chia seeds and maple syrup.
Simmer on a low heat for another 10/15 minutes until all is combined.
Pour into a sterilised jar and eat within 2 weeks.
Add this delicious jam to some toasted wholemeal/rye bread, add the fresh figs then sprinkle crushed pistachios on top! For extra indulgence I add a dollop of Greek yogurt.
Houmous & rye toast are my favourite combinations, so by adding a few fresh veggies and herbs, it takes a boring slice of toast and transforms it into a delicious fresh tasting light meal. Takes literally minutes to prepare which is a really time saver when in a hurry!
In a pan of simmering water, place the asparagus stems with the tips poking out, and steam for 4 minutes
Griddle the slices of rye in a pan on a high heat (you can simply pop them in the toaster just as easily)
Spread the houmous on thick (the best way)
Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters and add place onto the toast along with the asparagus
Sprinkle salt, pepper & the mixed herbs and enjoy!
Bacon, black pudding, eggs (look at the box - we're in Wales so these are Dragon eggs), rye toast & avocado. And all after a magic night's sleep; mostly because when they woke, the children read their books in bed & didn't wake us up (a first!). Hooray for us
We all know the winning combination of avocado and sourdough (they even rhyme) but to take it to that next level add some heat and serve it with shaved radish and watercress. Recipe via Veggie Magazine
While mushy peas might represent disappointing caravan holidays spent dodging the rain; a crushed pea dip is light and summery and reminds us that somewhere the sun is shining. A big thanks to April Bloomfield, chef at Spotted Pig, for her recipe that brings so much hope and promise.
There are some things that can't be messed with; some things that can't be improved. And the classic combo of avocado, crispy bacon and runny fried egg all perched atop a golden slice of toast is one of them. Thanks delicious. magazine for reminding us!
Forget avo on toast, that's so last year. This year it's all about using under-utilised ingredients such as radish leaves and using big bold flavours, such as pickled chili or aged butter, to liven them up.
Watch the video from Bon Appetit and be the envy of your friends when you make some yourself.
Wow! Make your French toast portable by popping chunks of it on a skewer, interspersed with slices of banana and drizzled in caramel sauce. Eating from a stick gives you a free hand to hold a cocktail. Bonus!
The recipe, via The Kitchn, includes a recipe for homemade caramel sauce.
The ultimate alternative brekkie. You don't always need meat, eggs or avo to have a good breakfast. And smoked fish and cheese is a wonderful combination.

Who knew that whipped and salted ricotta, slathered on toast and crowned with vibrant toppings could taste so good?
Using an electric whisk or a wooden spoon beat 200g of ricotta with a pinch of salt, leave in the fridge to thicken, overnight or for as long as you have the patience for, then garnish with your toppings of choice. See The Daily Telegraph article for the full recipe, or just add anything you fancy.

You can't beat homemade jam on toast. Suzanne told us:
My homemade damson jam is the perfect topping for toast, along with a bit of butter. Every year I forage a few pounds of fruit and make enough to keep me supplied for the year and give a few to family and friends. Toastastic!
Our job is to find Suzanne and become her friend
