I’m a foodie. That said, I’m a foodie who digs keeping it simple. I don’t have the luxury of time to create fantastically complicated foods. My avocado on toast recipe fills my need for nutritious yet easy-to-make food.
I figured out this tasty little recipe last Fall when my youngest daughter started college. I was incredibly busy with my business and riding my horse. Between taking care of the fur babies at home, nurturing Big Grey Horse Media and her clients, riding and preparing for horse shows, and managing my home, I had little time to fuss over food.
This avocado on toast recipe is perfect for people who want a nutritious, filling snack. It’s so simple: You take a piece of bread and an avocado and combine the two. I’m sure you can dress this open-faced sammie up in a variety of ways, too.
I’ve used a different breads for this recipe, but all within the range of Pepperidge Farms’ or Oroweat’s product lines. For me, there’s no sweet spot with bread. This particular version of my avocado on toast recipe uses Oroweat’s country potato bread (super YUM!). I find potato bread to be a wonderful bread for spring and summer dishes. The colder it gets, however, the more dense I want my bread to be. I’ve really loved avocado on Pepperidge Farm’s Jewish rye and pumpernickel breads, too.
Avocado on Toast
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Medium Haas avocado
- Slice of bread
- Garlic powder
Toast the bread for about seven to eight minutes. I prefer toast that has crunch but is not overly stiff as lightly toasted bread serves this recipe well. You want the bread to have enough depth and strength to carry the avocado, but not so much that the bread falls into crumbs when you bite into it.
Slice the avocado in half. You only need half of a medium avocado to make this recipe work. If you want two pieces of toast, however, you can use the entire medium-sized avocado.
Scoop out the avocado and spread it onto the toast. Spread the avocado until it covers the top of the bread.
Sprinkle garlic powder on top of the avocado. You can add sea salt if you want a bit more taste, but I like my avocado on toast simple. The buttery flavor of the avocado really shines through without the help of additional seasonings.
