If you ask me what my favorite meal is I can say without hesitation it is breakfast (well brunch, but I feel like that is cheating since it combines two meals). I could eat breakfast foods for the rest of my life and be completely happy. Eggs benedict, french toast, hash browns… I love them all. However, most of my favorite breakfast foods are time consuming or hard to make so I rarely get the chance to indulge in them, so that’s where avocado toast comes in.
Hands down avocado toast is the easiest and most delicious breakfast food that you can make at home. I can’t even remember when avocado toast became popular, but from my first try I jumped on board with the world’s obsession. The best part is that unlike eggs benedict I can make this delicious breakfast in under 10 minutes (meaning I eat it all the time). On a morning when I have a little extra time (aka when I don’t start work til 11) I always end up making some variation of avocado toast.
There are about a million different recipes for avocado toast on the internet, but I thought I would share how I make mine since I’ve combined a couple different recipes I’ve read overtime. Many people use lime in their mash, but I love lemons so I use lemon juice instead. Once you’ve made the basic version once or twice I highly recommend trying out variations. For a heartier breakfast I love adding a poached egg on top and if you are a guac lover like me you have to try adding in tomatoes and cilantro to the basic mash.
What other variations of avocado toast have you made? I’m always looking for new ways to make it!
