Here are a few delicious ways to upgrade your toast into a breakfast treat that is worthy of the avocado itself.  And all you need are two ingredients to make any one of these fancied-up avocado toasts.


The Everything Bagel Avocado Toast

Let’s get down to business with my favorite, shall we? Smear your toasted bread with cream cheese, add avocado, then a dense sprinkle of everything bagel blend.


Smoky Almond Avocado Toast

Talk about healthy fats! Top your avocado toast with chopped almonds and a drizzle of smoked olive oil. Or flip it by using smoked almonds with extra virgin olive oil.


Bacon Goat Cheese Avocado Toast

Bacon had to show up somewhere, right? Top your avocado toast with crumbles of cooked bacon and a handful of goat cheese.


Za’atar Avocado Toast

This invokes the flavors of Lebanon, Greece, and the Mediterranean. Smear a big dollop of whole-milk yogurt on your toast and top with za’atar, the fragrant herb blend.


Chips & Salsa Avocado Toast

Chips and salsa go together everywhere — even on avocado toast. This is a great use for those last few crumbs in the tortilla chip bag. Drizzle a bit of spicy salsa over your avocado toast, then top with crushed tortilla chips.

An egg is essential in this lineup, no? Smash a soft-boiled or poached egg on your avocado toast and sprinkle with garam masala or another Indian spice blend, such as curry powder or a rasam mix. (Here’s the recipe I use for garam masala.)


Caprese Avocado Toast

As soon as tomatoes come into season, you better believe they’re going on toast! This is so simple — chop up cherry tomatoes and put them on avocado toast with shreds of fresh basil. Black pepper optional.

Sometimes you just need some spice in the morning. Top avocado toast with hot sauce, Sriracha, or sambal olek, and squeeze a slice of lemon over it all.

The toast for when strawberries are in hand. Top your toast with sliced strawberries and a drizzle of aged balsamic vinegar.

Avocado toast for those of you who can’t get enough feta. Crumble feta on top and add sliced scallions, which just enhance the taste of feta.
