Avocado Toast

So I've recently gotten into avocado toast and I am curious how others make theirs. For now, I just bought some guacamole that is in a bottle that prevents it from going bad so quickly. I add a bit of the guac and an egg and some garlic seasoning and I'm good to go!

Do you slice or mash avocados? Do you prefer quacamole?

I'm just curious what others do! :)

    I usually mash the avocado and add some garlic salt, pepper (dried habanero peppers from my garden), and lemon or lime juice. I usually use half an avocado, so the other half I store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Sometimes I top my avocado toast with either a poached egg or bacon.

    I love avocado toast! Quick, easy, and very versatile. I just add whatever is in the fridge and top it with seasonings. I slice or mashed the avocado depending on what I’m putting on top or lazy I feel. I haven’t tried making guacamole to put over.

    Mashed normally I’ll add goat or feta with something else - salsa, sliced tomato, olives, sprouts, onions, hot peppers…

    Thinly sliced, I layer it over a protein - smoke salmon, lox, Canadian bacon, bacon are some of my favs - and add herbs

    Over the top, everything bagel mix, dried onion, salt, pepper, chili flakes, balsamic vinegar…

    I had a cookbook on ethnic ingredients that claimed Mexicans call avocado "poor man's butter". I just smear it on toast or crackers and sprinkle on some garlic salt. If you are keeping the leftover avocado in the fridge drizzle somethic acidic (preferably lime) on the exposed flesh.

    I like rustic seeded breads best. Mashed with a little hot sauce, sprinkled with homemade Everything but the Bagel Seasoning. Just my taste, but I think Trader Joe’s has too much garlic, so I make my own and cut back on the garlic a bit. My recipe makes a lot of the seasoning, which is good, because I use it on a lot of things.

    Also a fan of avocado toast, but nothing new regarding how to make it. I use half an avocado per sandwich. If you store the other half with the seed in, and cover it, it will stay fresh for a day or so. I just don't like lemon much, but I do keep a bottle of key lime juice in the refrigerator. So when I make guacamole or store avocado I add a few drops of that for my acid.

    Key lime juice is my go-to secret ingredient for brightening flavors.

    I like to top my avocado toast with lightly salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) from Aldi. Lime, salt and pepper are a must for the avocado.

    I start with fresh avocado and fork- smash in onto the toast so there are creamy bits and lots of big chunks. I top with thin sliced tomato Tajin chile-lime seasoning, and a little green onion or fresh basil if I have them on hand

    I like it simple, sliced with salt and pepper on buttered toast. A friend from Brazil suggested sprinkling it with sugar... typically how it's prepared there!

    I love avocado toast. I usually just use a fresh avocado on Ezekiel bread with some spices, I also often eat it with strawberries. Very filling and delicious.

    I just use avocado or sometimes guac as a mayo sub in almost everything. Random sandwich, chicken salad, egg salad, tuna salad, whatever. Yeah avocado is high calorie but it isn't HUNDRED CALORIES A TABLESPOON HIGH CALORIE.

    Plus it's better for you than the most mayo out there, anyway, the good-for-you fat vs. not-as-good.

    I never got into the avocado toast thing as I'm not a big toast person anyway, but when I was on an elimination diet I did discover putting avocado on a baked potato. Now that I can have butter again, I'd rather have avocado anyway.

    Yeah. You get the fat, you get moisture, and you get good flavor. The premade guac I made (which is not just avocado I know) is 40 calories for 2 tablespoons (I don't do weighing). It's healthy fat, it gets me TONS of flavor I don't have to do slicing and dicing for, and it still provides moisture and binding abilities. I guess it'd be weird as heck in some places people use mayo like coleslaw or potato salad, but it's a really good sub for butter and mayo in a LOT of places.

    Also it's delicious.

    This is all to taste so I use my own judgement with measuring ingredients. Smash the avocado and add lime juice, lemon juice, minced onion and garlic, Worcester sauce, cilantro, salt and pepper. Spread on the toast. Top with crumbled turkey bacon. So simple.

    I just discussed this topic with a friend over the weekend and she said she puts cottage cheese, avocado and everything bagel seasoning on hers. I'm excited to try this out since I do enjoy cottage cheese lol.

    Whole wheat toast, smoked salmon, 1/2 mashed avocado w. salt/pepper/lime juice, topped with over easy fried egg is my favorite.
