This may well be the easiest recipe I ever post, but it’s definitely one of my new favorite breakfast, especially with a sunny side up egg.
It Must Be Ripe
I love avocados. I am so jealous of the folks in California that can literally go out to a tree in their back yard and pick what they need. Here in the Midwest, you have to think ahead to be sure you can get one perfectly ripe. At my house, I buy at least two weekly and then work my schedule around them.
I honestly hadn’t ever thought about avocado for breakfast, but then I started seeing avocado toast all over the internet and on menus at many local restaurants. Well, why wouldn’t it be good for breakfast?
Let’s Give it a Try
I had all 5 ingredients I thought would be required and decided to give it a try. I mashed the avocado together with lemon juice, salt and pepper and then slathered it on top of a piece of toast. I wanted a little more protein so I added a sunny side up to the top.
It’s a Winner
Now I know what the buzz is all about. It is incredible.
I promise this is not a recipe for breakfast alone. I love avocado toast for a quick afternoon snack or it pairs up beautifully with a glass of red wine for a light dinner.
My love of avocados runs deep and this avocado toast is close to my heart.
- 1/2 Avocado
- Fresh Lemon Juice
- 1 slice Favorite Bread
Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Scoop out the avocado into a bowl and mash it with a fork. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon
juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Toast the bread until it is golden brown.
Slather the avocado mixture over the bread.
If making for a crowd, a potato masher works great to get the avocado just right.
