Avocado toast has become quite trendy, as you can find it in most of the coffee shops around small towns and cities. If you’re an avocado lover, it makes a great breakfast.
I love to make toast at home in the mornings, and sometimes I’ll have a sunny-side-up egg or two along with it (yolk + whites taste great on top of the bread).
Now, if you’re simply smearing the avocado on a piece of toast and plopping it on a plate, you’re doing it wrong (in my opinion). Doesn’t taste as good as the one from the cafe, right? Give it some flavor!!
Everybody makes avo toast a little differently, but I’ve been told that the way I make mine is delicious so I thought I’d share.
Garlic is one of the most important ingredients to give your avocado toast its flavor. I sprinkle enough to cover the toast but not coat it (too much garlic can get gross – you can always add more if it’s not enough).
Onion is a great addition. If you really like onion (I used to dislike them but I’ve grown to like their flavor), adding some red onion pieces on top will add not only flavor, but also more texture.
The key ingredient here… wait for it… is PAPRIKA.
What is paprika? It’s made from dried and ground red peppers. It isn’t spicy, though! If you’re looking for spicy, add some red pepper flakes (be careful, they’re strong!). Paprika adds the flavor that avocado toast needs. I like to pretty much coat my toast with it, like you can see in the photo above.
Of course a little bit of salt is needed too, and some black pepper goes a long way!
This may be a little different, but I like my toast on rolls – specifically the Italian soft rolls. Even a hamburger roll will do, too. They’re nice and thin, the perfect size for a 1/4 avocado per each slice, and they’re soft yet crispy when toasted.
Sourdough is a popular choice, too. It gets crispy especially along the edges. Bagels (everything bagels!!!) are amazing with avocado and onion on them too.
Simple & Savory
If I’m using one roll (or two small pieces of bread), I’ll use half an avocado. Avocado has a lot of healthy fats! It will sustain you for quite a while once it starts to fill you up.
Make yourself a lovely breakfast tomorrow and upgrade from the usual bagel + cream cheese! It’s worth it!
Look at you, you’re doing so well.
