Avocado toast has been, and still is, everywhere, and that’s just fine by me! I love it as an option when I’m eating out, especially if I’m at a restaurant with a so-so menu. You can’t go wrong with avocado toast.
I’m an avocado fanatic. Give me alllll the avocado! My husband, on the other hand? Not so much (sometimes I think I’ll never understand him). It makes me sad when I make guacamole and I have to eat it all by myself. Ha! Who am I kidding?!
Sometimes I want a little more out of my avocados than just guacamole, though. That’s when I slather it over toast and enjoy.
I’m always thinking about what might go well with avocado toast, and recently decided that Greek-inspired ingredients would be a hit. Oh, and they were! So many great flavors in one open-faced sandwich.
If you like the extras on yours, too, try my Tomato-Bacon Jam with Avocado Toast. This jam is actually my husband’s specialty, and man is it good! It pairs really well with avocado.
One of my most well liked recipes on the site has been my Avocado Egg Salad. It’s super-delicious! When you check it out, keep in mind this is an old recipe with like, one bad photo to go along with it. Please don’t let it stop you from trying it. You really don’t want to miss out!
