A piece of toast can make for the most boring plate of food on planet Earth. (I’m looking at you, white bread with butter.) Or it can be a truly delicious, nutritious and filling meal that makes you tear up when you realize you’ve eaten the last bite. Seriously, toast really can be that good.

Don’t believe me? Check out the 15 recipes below featuring — you guessed it — toast. We’re not talking the plain ol’ Wonder Bread stuff. These recipes lend an oh-so-adult upgrade to one of the lowliest kitchen staples for breakfast, lunch or even dinner.

No matter your hankering, we’ve got a recipe for you. (Just make sure to drape your keyboard with a paper towel before you scroll down: Drooling is inevitable.)
