Avocado Toast
Just a trend? Maybe. So delicious we don’t care? Definitely. When it comes to this millennial standby, we can’t stop, and we won’t stop. Here are three of our favorite ways to top our toast.

If you’re the type who prefers a savory breakfast to a sweet one, then avocado toast is the dish for you. That’s not to say that avocado toast needs to be restricted to breakfast only! With a few upgrades, this standard dish can be enjoyed as a nutritional lunch, a wholesome snack and even a filling dinner. Grab a ripe avocado and your favorite bread, and let’s get toasting.

  1. Mash up a ripe avocado in a small bowl. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Toast a piece of bread, then slather in the mashed avocado.
  3. Put a spoonful of basil pesto on top of the avocado.
  4. Heat a pan on medium-high and melt a pat of butter. Crack an egg and cover with a lid, steaming the tops. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until the whites are no longer opaque and are set on top.
  5. Top each slice of avocado and pesto slathered toast with a fried egg. Season with a little salt, pepper, and sliced green onions and fresh tomatoes, if desired.
