The Best Avocado Toast Recipe
This is the absolute best Avocado Toast recipe because it is based on using just a few quality ingredients. From there, the sky's the limit. You can eat as is, or create any number of flavor combinations depending on what you like and what you have around the house.
One of my favorite ways to make Avocado Toast is topping with a fried egg sunny side up. Finish with everything bagel seasoning, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice for a crazy satisfying breakfast or brunch. Below you will find a few variation ideas to get you started, but feel free to use your imagination and get creative.
Simple Avocado Toast Ingredients
- Sourdough Bread - sourdough is my favorite bread to use for Avocado Toast, but any freshly baked whole grain or wheat loaf will work great. Toasted bagels are another delicious option.
- Avocado - choose ripe avocados that have just a little bit of give when gently pressed.
- Cream Cheese - I like full fat cream cheese but you can use a low fat variety if you prefer.
- Everything Bagel Seasoning - if you somehow have never tried this, do yourself a favor and grab some! The flavors are amazing with cool, creamy avocado and fresh lime juice.
- Salt - be sure not to skip the salt here. It seriously boosts the flavor of avocado. Sea salt or any other type of flaky sea salt will work great.
- Pepper - I love a little freshly cracked black pepper on my Avocado Toast.
- Lime - just a little fresh lime juice squeezed right over the top is exactly what this needs as a finishing touch.
How to Make Avocado Toast
- Toast the bread. Toast the sourdough bread until crispy and golden brown.
- Add the avocado and cream cheese. Spread cream cheese evenly over each slice. Peel and slice the avocado and spread half over the cream cheese on each piece of toast. (You can mash the avocado if you prefer)
- Season and serve. Season with everything bagel seasoning, sea salt, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
Avocado Toast Variations
Here are a few delicious and simple variations to try:
- Smashed Avocado and Egg Toast: top with a fried egg, poached egg, or scrambled egg and sprinkle with salt and pepper. If you like things spicy, you could add a pinch of red pepper flakes.
- Avocado Toast with Bacon and Tomato: add a few slices of crispy bacon and sliced tomato.
- Avocado Toast with Feta and Dill: crumble some feta cheese on top and sprinkle with fresh dill.
- Avocado Toast with Salsa: top with fresh salsa and a squeeze of lime juice.
- Avocado Toast with Salmon: add smoked salmon, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and a little squeeze of lemon juice.
- Avocado Toast with Hummus: spread hummus over the toasted bread before adding your avocado and sprinkle of paprika.
- Sourdough Avocado Toast: use fresh sourdough bread to give your Avocado Toast a sophisticated flavor.
Frequently Asked Questions
When choosing the perfect avocado, you want to pick one that is just barely squishy when gently pressed. If you plan to mash your avocado, it can be slightly squishier but if there is too much give, it is likely browning on the inside. Avocados that aren’t ripe yet have very little flavor so avoid ones that are rock hard.
For Avocado Toast, plan on about ½ an avocado per slice of toast.
It’s best to choose bread with great flavor, but you also want the toast to hold its shape even with the avocado on top. I love making Avocado Toast with thick slices of hearty sourdough. Other whole grain loaves, or any freshly baked bread will work great. Sliced sandwich bread will work in a pinch but don’t expect it to hold up very well!
There are so many delicious Avocado Toast seasoning ideas, including salt, pepper, and everything bagel seasoning. You can also add sesame seeds, paprika, a pinch of chili powder, or any of your other favorite avocado breakfast seasonings.
