For the ricotta, you can smear it on the bread as is or whip it to make it creamier.
How to Whip Ricotta?
Whipping ricotta makes it fluffy, light, and super creamy. Whole milk ricotta will be creamier and richer than skim ricotta when you’re whipping ricotta. It’s a simple process, simply add ricotta in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Use a toaster if you’re making just one or two toasts. Use the oven if you’re making more.
- Use the oven, lay the slices on a large baking sheet in a 350°F oven for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through.
- Use the broiler. Turn on the broiler and toast the bread for just a few minutes on each side. Watch it closely so it doesn’t burn.
- Use the air fryer. Turn on the Air Fryer and toast on one side for a couple of minutes until it’s as toasted as you want, flip the bread, and repeat.
