Avocado toast is so hot right now. It is the latest delicious, healthy, and simple breakfast that has taken cafes and health restaurants by storm!
What is avocado toast?
Put simply, it’s toast with avocado on top. However, more and more restaurants are taking advantage of this easy-to-make breakfast or snack item, as the basic components can be combined with an array of seasonal ingredients. Avocado toast is also relatively inexpensive, the ingredients stay fresh for a long amount of time, and it can be sold at a higher price point (because people love it so much).
How do you make avocado toast?
The beauty of avocado toast is how simple it is to make. Just choose your favorite whole-grain or gluten-free bread, toast it up, and add sliced or mashed avocado on top. It’s as simple as that! You can add as many ingredients as you like, and tweak them in your own unique way. That’s the beauty of avocado toast - it’s easy to change up!
Rather than spend anywhere from $6-10 on avocado toast at a cafe or restaurant, give some of our favorite combinations a try.
The Best Avocado Toast Recipes
Mash the avocado in a bowl, then season with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of True Lemon. Spread the avocado mixture on top of a whole grain or gluten-free toast slice. Slice in half and serve with a drizzle of olive oil, if desired.
Avocado Toast with True Lemon Ricotta Spread
In a bowl, combine 1 cup of ricotta cheese with 2 packets of True Lemon and 1-2 tablespoons of cream cheese. Whisk well to combine. On whole grain or sliced artisan toast, spread a couple of tablespoons of the True Lemon / ricotta mixture, then top with sliced avocado. Sprinkle with additional True Lemon, and thin slices of ham or prosciutto (if desired).
True Lemon Pepper Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon
Mash the avocado with True Lemon Pepper spice blend, a dash of red pepper flakes, and a teaspoon of capers. Spread on the avocado mixture on toast, and top with smoked salmon or lox. To serve, sprinkle with fresh dill.
Italian-Style Avocado Toast
On two slices of bread, add sliced avocado, then cover with slices of fresh mozzarella cheese. Toast in the oven on broil for about 2-4 minutes (until bread is browned and cheese is bubbling). Top the toast with fresh sliced tomatoes, then sprinkle with chopped fresh basil and a drizzle of olive oil for serving.
Egg-On-Top Avocado Toast
Lay fresh spinach leaves on top of toast, then add sliced avocado. Season with salt, pepper, and True Lemon. Top with an over-easy, soft-boiled, or poached egg (whatever you prefer). Serve with a knife and fork!
Vegan Avocado Toast
Spread toast with garlic hummus, then top with sliced avocados and coarsely chopped roasted red peppers. Simple, delicious, and no cheese needed!
Southwest-Style Avocado Toast
In a bowl, mash the avocado with fresh corn, fresh cilantro, chopped tomatoes, and chopped red onion. Spread on top of toast and serve with a sprinkle of shredded cheddar cheese, and a dash of your favorite hot sauce. For a little something special, add a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.
Fancy Avocado Toast
Mash the avocado in a bowl, season with True Lemon, salt, and pepper. Top with roasted asparagus, fresh shaved Parmesan, and fresh chopped parsley. Slice and serve!
