Ingredients

Eight 1/4-inch slices ciabatta, cut on the bias

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil 

1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar

2 cups ricotta, at room temperature 

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

2 1/2 cups mixed fresh berries or fruit of your choice 

Honey, for drizzling

Flaky sea salt, for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Brush the ciabatta slices on both sides with olive oil, then sprinkle both sides evenly with 1/4 cup of the sugar, gently rubbing it in.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Place the sugared bread in the skillet and cook until golden brown and caramelized on both sides, 2 minutes per side. Remove to a wire rack to cool briefly.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the ricotta, vanilla and the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar with a rubber spatula. Divide the mixture among the toasts and spread evenly. Top with berries, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
