Until now, you probably thought that slices of bread were nice bookends for meats and cheeses, but they are actually mini blank canvases. Have you ever thought of painting on bread?
That’s right, it’s time for you to find your inner kindergarten, finger-painting-loving self and start painting your own van Gogh–inspired masterpieces on your breakfast.
Prep time: 3 minutes
Painting time: as long as your imagination needs
Toasting time: up to you
Bread (white bread provides the best canvas)
1. Make your paint by adding 4 drops of food coloring per ¼ cup milk. Experiment by mixing colors to make new shades.
2. Go Picasso and start painting on the bread with your paintbrush. Do not oversaturate the bread with milk because a soggy piece means soggy toast.
3. Put your masterpiece in the toaster for your desired amount of time. Pop it out, slap some butter on it and eat your piece of pure artistic perfection.
