Elevated Avocado Toast


I will never fork over $14 to have this for brunch when I’m out with my friends, but I’ve come up with a few homemade recipes that are just as delicious and cost half of avocado toast on any restaurant menu. Here are a few of my favorites:

Classic: Avocado mashed up on whole wheat toast with an egg on top. I like to hard boil eggs and have this for lunch throughout the week but if you prefer scrambled or fried eyes, those work well here, too. Optional add-ons include salsa or red pepper flakes.

Tex Mex: Trade eggs for black beans and top with lime juice and hot sauce.

Veggies: Avocado spread with sliced cucumbers and diced grape tomatoes, sprinkle with dill.

Savory Veggie: Heirloom Tomatoes, balsamic vinegrette. I’m allergic to basil but some people think it pairs well with this dish.

Philly: Smoked salmon, capers. Optional: red onions and cream cheese.
