That selfie you took this morning (you know, the one of you in your car) is probably up on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook by now.

But thanks to a novelty toaster company in Vermont, that selfie can now appear somewhere else: your breakfast plate.

Vermont Novelty Toaster Corp. allows customers to custom-order toasters with images of themselves, their pets or a personal message, if that’s what you crave.

“You don’t have to be famous or Jesus to have your face on toast,” Galen Dively, the company’s president, said in a press release. “This can be done with your pet’s image also; or your grandkids.”

For $75, you can douse your likeness in butter or jam by uploading an image to the company’s site, picking a color and waiting patiently for your order to arrive.

Dively told “Today” he got the idea four years ago, but just recently began receiving a high volume of orders for the selfie toasters.

“Before last Thursday, I could count the amount of selfie orders I got on two hands,” Dively said.

If selfie toast doesn’t suit your appetite, you can also go with the company’s original Jesus toaster, the Virgin Mary toaster or the Edgar Allen Poe toaster.
