Avocado toast is a classic. It’s delicious. But we can make it more delicious!
This post is a little different today, because it’s not exactly a “recipe” per say. It’s a bunch of my very favorite twists on avocado toast.—avocado toast inspiration, if you will, haha.
I think? avocado toast is usually a breakfast thing (right?), but I can and have eaten it for literally every meal…breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner… It’s perfect anytime (it helps that it’s stupid easy to whip up)! I thinks it’s the creamy-crunchy combo that’s so addicting.
The basic avocado toast is tasty, but throwing on a few ingredients can make it all a bit more fun and exciting (or am I the only one that gets overly excited about food…?) Hopefully, I’m showing you guys a few new, fun, and different toppings that you may not have considered.
All of the variations start with a base of 1/2 of a small, ripe avocado smashed onto a piece of multigrain toast, sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly-ground pepper.
I think a really good multigrain bread is 100% necessary for excellent avocado toast. My personal favorite is Dave’s Killer Bread, specifically the Blues Bread. It’s crunchy and sweet and full of tons of seeds and yumminess.
lemon juice + chili flakes
This is the closest to your typical avocado toast, but the lemon juice adds a zing of freshness, and the chili flakes bring the heat.
creamy blue cheese + crumbled bacon
This is playing off of the flavors of a Cobb salad. I like to use a really creamy blue cheese, like a good gorgonzola.
sharp cheddar + crumbled bacon
If you’re not a blue cheese fan, try this one! I sprinkle on the cheese, then pop it under the broiler until it just melts.
honey + sunflower seeds
This is probably the strangest of the combinations, but the flavors work together so well! It’s sweet, but still savory from the avocado, and the sunflower seeds add awesome texture.
fried egg + sriracha
There’s pretty much nothing that a runny egg yolk can’t make better, and avocado toast is no exception. I also like to add a squirt of sriracha for some spice, but also sweetness (am I alone in thinking that sriracha is kinda sweet??).
Do you guys have any awesome avocado toast combos that I need to try?
