Avocado toast is a breakfast staple. It is filling, nutritious, and delicious. You would think that the recipe for the perfect avocado toast is simple, but it can, in fact, become quite complex. There is a lot you can do with your avocado toast to elevate the flavors and make it gourmet.
The first two steps are simple:
To start, slice your bread and toast it to perfection. I suggest using fresh sourdough, as there is nothing better than a good piece of sourdough. Next, take a freshly ripe avocado (sometimes hard to come by) and gently mash a generous amount onto your toast. Once you complete these first two steps, you are ready to take your avocado toast to the next level. It is time to get creative with your flavors. I am going to give you 4 different recipes to enhance this breakfast classic.
