making gourmet avocado toast recipes at home 3 different ways

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 of 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.

    My local Aldi has avocados on sale this week for 49 cents each. Every few days I pick up 4-5 unripe avocados and leave them on the counter. Once they start to get ripe, I immediately put them in the fridge and rotate them using the older ones first. Have been making lots of avocado toast lately! Thanks for this post Lina 🙂

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum Bunny! Boy that Aldi a awesome – wish I had one! Thanks for stopping by today!

    Try a poached egg 😍. Not hard to make. Carnival has the avocado toast with poached eggs on our last cruise.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh that’s a great idea – sounds yum!

  4. Sallys

    This looks super good! I buy a balsamic glaze from trader joe’s that is only a few dollars that is really good, and may be a good alternative here.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing Sally!

    • Leslie

      Ooh, we love that TJ glaze. I originally purchased it for one of our favorite uses for it during summer gardening time: slice of fresh tomato topped w/fresh mozzarella, glaze, then sprinkled w/fresh tiny 🌿 basil. Quick, easy, yum!

  5. Cami

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

  9. Marcy

    Love avocado toast with homemade sourdough, aleppo pepper, and chili honey. We make our own with chili powder and honey. Fast, easy, and amazing. I love to hear what other people make. Thanks, Lina!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I love the idea of chili honey! Sound so great – thanks Marcy!

  10. Trineke

    I’m 43 and have made avacado toast my entire adult life, way before it was cool. My favorite are a poached egg and red onions, and also mixing a little cream cheese spread with it and smearing it on toast. I think I’ve eaten 2-3 avocados a week for 25 years or so. My favorite food on the planet.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Wow how awesome! And that all sounds yum. ❤️

  11. Allison

    This post is so great! I love Avocado toast! It is so delicious made with Trader Joe’s Cracked Wheat Sourdough bread! I sometimes put a sliced tomato and fried egg on top, then sprinkle with Trader Joe’s Chile Lime seasoning! Thanks for the idea of the caprese toast! I must try it asap!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes you’ll love that one I think! And yours sounds yum too- I’ve heard about this chili lime seasoning and I need to try that also! Thanks Alison ❤️

  12. Pam

    If you can find English muffin bread avocado toast made with mashed chickpeas, (adds lots of fiber) topped with diced fresh tomatoes, a little cilantro finely chopped!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yum! I like the chickpeas idea, and will look for that bread! Thanks Pam!

  13. Gwen B

    Are you or anyone on your team doing Keto? I know it’s unrelated, I just started, but I’m trying to find a good creamer substitute for coffee!

  14. Mary

    Now I’m hungry and I don’t have any avocados, but I’m taking notes! I keep it simple generally. Publix 5 Grain bread…drizzle a little garlic infused EVOO, mashed avocado, salt/pepper and top with a over medium fried egg.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yum!! Sounds great to me Mary 😀

      • Jen

        I have avocado toast every morning but I cheat and use guacamole! I buy the large pack of holy guacamole from Costco ( the mini cups) and put it on toast with a slice of tomato! It’s faster and easier

  15. Michelle C

    I hard boil my eggs in the instapot. Manual for 3 minutes and they are perfect
