Make the Ultimate Mashed Avocado Toast!
Anyone else obsessed with avocados?
My family is, and when avocados are mashed on top of a crusty piece of bread, it’s pretty much one of the best foods EVER! I could enjoy it any time of the day, but there’s just something fancy yet simplistic when you have avocado toast for breakfast.
I’ve even ordered avocado toast at trendy brunch places, which is kinda funny because it’s pretty easy to make your own gourmet version at home any day of the week.
Today, I’m sharing 3 easy ways to upgrade your avocado toast!
First, start with a generous piece of warm toast. I personally like to use a slice of substantial whole wheat bread, like the brand Dave’s Killer Bread, which will give ya some great avocado toast! You can, of course, use a baguette or your preference for bread.
The next step is making a basic avocado mash with salt, pepper, and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, which really brightens the flavor. When picking avocados, you want them slightly soft, but not mushy or stringy.
Everything But The Bagel Avocado Toast
This is my personal “go-to” avocado toast variety that I make most often. I use Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning featuring garlic, sesame seeds, onion, and salt. You can pick up a larger-sized, similar seasoning at Costco, or even make your own DIY Everything But the Bagel seasoning. I also like to add a pinch of red pepper flakes for additional flavor. So simple and YUM!
Bacon and Egg Avocado Toast
This toast gets topped with a diced piece of crispy bacon, a sliced hard-boiled egg, and garnished with some freshly chopped chives. It’s so good, and these flavors all together make for a well rounded satisfying breakfast of champions!
Hip Tip: My favorite, EASY way to make hard-boiled eggs for recipes is to use my air fryer! Place eggs in a basket, set the time to 16 minutes, and the temperature to 260 degrees. Place the cooked eggs in ice water and peel shells. Easy peasy!
Caprese Avocado Toast
This toast will satisfy your inner foodie for sure! It’s topped with a few bites of olive oil & herb soaked mozzarella cheese, roasted tomatoes, and balsamic vinegar glaze. My grocery store has a yummy gourmet olive and antipasto bar in the deli where you can usually find the mozzarella and tomatoes!
Also if you need an awesome recommendation for that crave-able type of aged syrupy balsamic vinegar, my favorite is this 25-year-old aged balsamic vinegar from Williams-Sonoma.
