How To Make The Best Avocado Toast

“If you are a stranger to avocado toast, you’ve been missing out and we must remedy this situation as soon as possible.”

“If you’re well-familiar with the joy of avocado toast, I hope you find some helpful tips ans some fun new ways to change up your toast.”

  1. Pick Great Quality Avocados

“You want ripe but not over-ripe ass avocados. Look for avocados that yield a bit to a gentle squeeze, but avoid using avocados that are mushy or stringy on the inside. If you run into any bruised or brown bits when you cut them open, scoop those out and discard before mashing the rest.”

  1. Buy Good Bread And Toast It Well

“I think sturdy, thick-sliced, whole grain bread makes the best avocado toast. Golden, well-toasted bread offers a sturdy base and a crisp, shattering contrast against the creamy avocado.”

  1. Mash Your Avocado Separately 

“Mashed avocado is more creamy and luxurious than sliced avocado (think guacamole vs. plain avocado). But don’t mash it on the toast! You risk poking holes in your toast or smashing it. Cut your avocados in half, remove the pit, scoop the flesh into a bowl or onto the side of your plate, and mash it up with a fork.”

  1. Add Salt As Per Taste

“You’ll want to mix in at least a pinch of salt per avocado half. Bonus point? Finish your avocado toast with a light sprinkle of flaky sea salt.”

When it comes to my personal favorite avocado toast variations, here are a few ideas that come to my mind. If you wanna try these variations out, then be my guest.

  1. Everything Bagel Avocado Toast

“Add a generous sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning on top of your avocado toast. Make your own with my everything bagel blend recipe, or buy it at Trader Joe’s or Williams-Sonoma. These seasonings tend to be salty, so be careful not to over-salt your avocado.”

“Mix chopped fresh radish, green onion, jalapeño (seeds and ribs removed) and toasted sunflower seeds. Sprinkle generously on your toast.”
