    Avocado Toast Variations

    Avocados on toast are so perfect by themself, but it’s so easy to add other toppings. It’s simple to elevate this avocado toast recipe and make it perfect for more filling breakfasts or to enjoy on a weekend brunch – for example, one of my favorites is avocado egg toast. These are some of my other favorite avocado toast ideas:

    • Sliced cherry tomatoes and crumbled feta cheese 
    • Sliced hard-boiled egg, poached egg or fried egg
    • Smoked salmon, chopped fresh dill and honey mustard 
    • Soft scrambled egg and crumbled bacon 
    • Pico de Gallo 
    • Goat cheese and chives
    • Cucumber slices, red onion slices, and dill
    • Radishes, cheese, and parsley

    Use Ripe Avocados!

    The most important thing to make this the best avocado toast ever is to make sure that your avocados are perfectly ripe. When they are underripe, they are harder to mash and the flavor is not as rich. A ripe avocado will give slightly when you squeeze it.

    What’s the best bread to use?

    To keep this breakfast gluten-free, I like to use my favorite gluten-free bread. I use fairly thick slices to support the toppings. If you aren’t sensitive to gluten, you can use your favorite bread, the nuttiness, and texture of whole grain work really well.

    Can you make mashed avocado ahead of time?

    It’s best not to make the avocado topping too far ahead of time as it can start to turn brown. If you are planning on making it ahead, be sure to add in the lemon juice as this will help to slow the process. You can keep it covered in the fridge for up to a day.

    How to store half an avocado?

    Place the cut avocado with the flesh-side down in a bowl half full with water, cover, and place in the fridge. This will keep the avocado from turning brown for about another two days.

    Recipe Tips and Notes

    • Use ripe avocados that give a little when you squeeze them gently.
    • Mash the avocados by hand. Don’t be tempted to use a food processor as this will make them too mushy.
    • Add a little bit a lemon juice. This will help slow down the browning process of the avocado.
    • Add seasoning. Taste the mashed avocado before using and adjust the seasoning to taste.
    • Add in Garlic. Rub raw peeled garlic clove over top of each slice of toast before spreading the avocado mixture.
