  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, green leaves removed and cut into quarters
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 slice crusty bread (I use sourdough)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon fresh basil, chopped


  • Begin the recipe by preparing 1 cup of fresh strawberries. You will need to wash them, remove the green tops, and cut them into quarters.
  • Toss the prepared strawberries with 1 tablespoon granulated sugar and allow them to sit for about 15 to 20 minutes until the juices release.
  • Next preheat the oven to high broil and place the 1 bread slice on a baking sheet and brush the tops with 1 teaspoon olive oil before placing into the oven under the broiler (or air fryer) until it becomes lightly toasted and golden brown in color, about 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the bread from the oven and spread a generous amount (1 tablespoon) of cream cheese on top of each slice of toast.
  • Lastly, spoon the desired amount of strawberries on top of the cream cheese and top each piece with a sprinkle (1 teaspoon) of freshly chopped basil. Enjoy!
