The scent of cinnamon always seems to evoke happy memories of comforting breakfasts. This is a childhood classic that’s too good to skimp on ingredients: make your toast with bakery-fresh bread, luscious European-style butter, and fragrant, high-quality cinnamon. For the sweet accent, I prefer to use honey rather than granulated sugar. You can use your favorite artisan bread, as long as it doesn’t have too many holes in it, which will allow the butter to leak through.–Rick Rodgers
