If you want to make more servings, feel free to double or triple the recipe depending on how many people you are making it for and/or how many meals you want it to last for.
You can keep leftover pieces of toast (excluding the toppings) in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop and add toppings of choice.
