Not all recipes are created equally. In fact, some are too basic to even really be considered recipes at all. Avocado Toast isn't hard. I mean, make toast, put avocado on it, right? Boom, you've got Avocado Toast. But the perfect Avocado Toast? That's another story altogether. I've spent ages perfecting my Avocado Toast...the right bread, the right toppings. When something is so deceptively simple, the details and ingredients really matter. Want to make your Avocado Toast perfect every time? Read on...
What you'll need:
1 small ripe avocado
salt and pepper to taste
1 large piece of multi grain rye bread
For my money, Rudolph's makes the ultimate multi grain rye bread.
1. Make your toast
2. Mush up your ripe avocado with a fork, adding salt and pepper to taste
3. Spread it on your toast
At this point, yeah, you could be done. Good enough to eat for breakfast lunch or dinner.
But why stop there? The topping options are endless. My favourites include sliced roma tomatoes with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and sprouts or thinly sliced cheese (Beemster! Sharp Cheddar!) or a sprinkle of arugula and a thin slice of prosciutto sort of draped on top like a ribbon.
This morning, I topped mine with a poached egg and some hot sauce.
There's a pretty good chance I'm going to eat nothing but this for the next month or two.
How do you like to top your Avocado Toast? Any tips?
