From healthiest to most delicious, these are our favorite avocado toast recipes!

We don’t care your age, your political affiliation, or even where you live, it's undeniable that avocado toast is one of the tastiest meals in the world. And if you don’t agree, it’s probably because you haven’t tried one of these recipes!

It sounds simple, toast some bread, add a few slices of avocado and viola, you’re in heaven. But if you really want to take your brunch, lunch, or dinner to the next level, you’re going to want to spice up that avocado toast with some add-ons and specialty-made breads.

So, whether you’re a dedicated fan of avocado toast or you’re a newcomer to this wonderful world, these are the recipes that will make you dream of brunch every night.

1. START SIMPLE WITH THE BEST TOAST POSSIBLE

Our first recipe is the most simple, for the novices if you will. It’s the easiest version of the avocado toast because it only involves two things, avocado and toast. What you need to remember though is that the TOAST IS EVERYTHING. If you’re using sad, white-loaf bread, it’s obvious your meal will fail. We recommend La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast, the freshest, flakiest bread available for online order. It will make all the difference. It’s like have a fresh bakery right in your kitchen with the combination of flakey crust and buttery inside. For every recipe, we recommend La Boulangerie.

So, the simplest version of Avocado Toast:

1. Mash one avocado in a bowl.

2. Add a teaspoon of olive oil, and salt/pepper to taste.

3. Toast two slices of La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast.

4. Once the toast is ready, spread the avocado on the toast.

5. Sprinkle seasoning! (We use Everything But The Bagel seasoning)

2. AVOCADO TOAST WITH SPROUTS AND CAYENNE

Our second favorite recipe takes avocado up one notch with a fresh crunch. One of my favorite ingredients to add to pretty much ANYTHING are bean sprouts! They taste so fresh and give any meal a little extra kick. You feel like a super yoga mom eating them, too! And speaking of kicks, this recipe adds just a little cayenne and crushed red pepper flakes to spice up your life!

1. Mash one avocado in a bowl.

2. Add a teaspoon of olive oil, and salt/pepper to taste.

3. Toast two slices of La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast.

4. Once the toast is ready, spread the avocado on the toast.

5. Place fresh bean sprouts on top of the avocado.

6. Sprinkle crushes red pepper and the smallest amount of cayenne to taste.

3. PROSCIUTTO AND AVOCADO TOAST

Let’s add one of my favorite salted meats… prosciutto! If you like a savory kick to your avocado toast, it’s the easiest way to get it. Thin slices of prosciutto and fresh green onions make this a great lunch-time recipe. In this recipe we sliced the prosciutto nice and small so it’s easier to bite.

1. Toast two slices of La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast.

2. Slice avocado in quarters.

3. Add slices of avocado to the toast.

4. Add slices of prosciutto.

5. Add fresh cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

6. Top with fresh green onions.

Combine chopped ripe tomatoes, minced red onion, jalapeno, chopped cilantro, and lime juice.

4. LOX AND AVOCADO TOAST

I had to start skipping my morning bagel to try and save some calories, so this is one of my favorite lunches when I have the time to make it. It’s a simple recipe but you’re going to want to find some really tasty lox, smoked salmon, as that’s the most important part of this recipe.

1. Toast two slices of La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast.

2. Slice avocado in quarters.

3. Add slices of avocado to the toast.

4. Once the toast is ready, spread creme fraiche on the toast (or cream cheese!).

5. Spread the slices of avocado.

6. Ad the loc, smoked salmon.

7. Top with pickled onions.

8. Sprinkle with chives on top.

5. BREAKFAST AVOCADO TOAST

And for everyone who’s wondering where the breakfast version of avocado is, here you go! This is the classic breakfast style with bacon and eggs. Perfect for a man’s man who’s afraid to look like a girly girl and need their bacon… or just for a girl that appreciates a classic breakfast.

1. Mash one avocado in a bowl.

2. Add a teaspoon of olive oil, and salt/pepper to taste.

3. Toast two slices of La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast.

4. Once the toast is ready, spread the avocado on the toast.

5. Add two slices of crispy bacon

6. Add one fried egg, over easy!

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE TOAST - WHY WE CHOSE LA BOULANGERIE

There really is very little competition between La Boulangerie and all other breads. It’s by-far the number one pick for avocado toast… along with any other kind of sandwich or snack. To help give us some more clarity into why, we asked one of our reporters that helped us build our recipe list. Stephanie Mason, to give us a little more insight on her first choice.

To be honest, I wasn’t much of a bread eater in the last few years. When you walk down grocery aisles, most of the selection looks bad or just doesn’t seem healthy. And when I went to the bakery, it felt like every time I bought a loaf of bread, the next day it was stale and uneatable.

I had pretty much given up on bread when I visited my friend, who I trust with my life. She made me lunch and served me the most delicious BLT sandwich. I couldn’t get over how fresh and soft the bread was. I couldn’t stop thinking about it, so I asked what bakery she picked it up at. She laughed and told me it was La Boulangerie (like I knew!). That’s when she pulled a bag of Croissant Toast OUT OF THE FREEZER! I couldn’t believe she froze the bread and I thought was baked that day. I was floored. I asked her for the rest of the loaf (LOL) but she told me to order my own. And seeing they were offering 50% off your first order, I DID NOT hesitate.

I received my order in just two days and was so excited to try it out. While I made my first breakfast with it, I learned a little more about the bread…

La Boulangerie uses all non-gmo ingredients, which help keep it’s fresh flavor and as natural as possible.

CAGE-FREE EGGS

If you’re concerned about an animal’s well-being as I am, it’s good to know the food you’re eating is using cage-free eggs. It drastically changes the well-being of chickens, and personally, I think it makes for better eggs.

NO ARTIFICIAL PRESERVATIVES

What shocked me the most was that La Boulangerie doesn’t use any artificial preservatives. For how fresh it tasted days after receiving, I was blown away. I don’t know how they do it, but it’s some of the freshest bread I’ve ever eaten.

After a breakfast of french toast, I waited a few hours before digging into the bread again and making myself an avocado sandwich. I truly love how versatile this bread can be. From the flakey croissant to the soft center. It’s how I came up with the idea to make this list of avocado toast recipes!

After trying La Boulangerie’s Croissant Toast, I was totally converted into a bread-lover. Whether you are one or not, I definitely recommend this loaf!

What is Avocado Toast?

If you’re wondering what Avocado Toast is then you must not get out much. Just kidding! Avocado Toast is toast with mashed or sliced avocado on top. It’s kind of Instagram famous because some people have gotten pretty creative with their avocado toast recipes topping it with all different types of ingredients.


Avocado Toast

I've been wanting to make this for awhile now- avocado toast has become ubiquitous on the menus of all of the city's little brunch hotspots as of late. Simple concept, a LOT of flavor.

I have a love affair with avocados in all shapes and forms. It is prime example of a food high in calories and fat, but far higher in nutritional benefits. Few quick facts on this fruit: close to 20 vitamins & minerals, high in fiber (nearly 80% of its carb content is dietary fiber), an anti-inflammatory food (carotenoid antioxidants which also help nutrient absorption of other foods eaten with it, omega-3 fatty acids, nearly 2x the potassium of the lauded banana, and I could go on and on.

I tried to create a simple balance of flavors here that would complement and enhance the creamy flavor of the avocado without overwhelming it. Tart of lemon, spice of red pepper = success. Aka my friend and I continued to talk about it for another half hour after we were finished eating.


Toast the bread and mash the avocado for this avocado toast recipe

Toast the three slices of bread for this avocado toast recipe in the toaster or in an oven until they are golden and crispy. You don't want the toast to burn, of course, but this is no time for lightly toasted bread, as it may become soggy and may lack the resilience to support the weight of all the great stuff you'll be piling on.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the avocado, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and mash with a fork until it's all mixed and smooth. Note that the lemon juice does add some great taste, but is also used to prevent the avocado from browning.


The Ultimate Avocado Toast

Just when you thought your much-loved avocado toast couldn’t get any better, along comes this version that’s topped with a perfectly fried egg and pickled red onion. A spiralizer makes fast work of cutting the onion into thin strands, and you can prepare the pickles up to a week in advance, so your ultimate morning meal will come together in no time.

The Ultimate Avocado Toast

Ingredients

For the pickled onion:

  • 1 red onion, spiralized with the chipper blade
  • 6 peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) water
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz./250 ml) red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (2 oz./60 g) sugar
  • 1 Tbs. kosher salt
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lime juice (optional)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 slices whole-wheat bread, toasted
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Smoked paprika or pimentón for garnish
  • Chopped fresh chives for garnish

1. To make the pickled onion, in a heatproof bowl, combine the onion, peppercorns and bay leaf. In a small saucepan over high heat, combine the water, vinegar, sugar and salt and bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar and salt. Pour over the onion and let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 1 week before using.

2. Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Scoop the flesh into a bowl, add the lime juice and a large pinch of kosher salt, and coarsely mash. Taste and add more salt if desired. Spread the avocado over the toast slices, dividing it evenly.

3. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Add the butter to the griddle. When the butter foams, place 4 egg fry rings on the griddle and crack an egg into each one. Cook until the whites are set and the yolks have begun to thicken but are still soft, about 4 minutes, or until done to your liking. Lift off the rings and top each avocado toast with a fried egg.

4. Drain the pickled onion and top the toasts with the onion, dividing it evenly. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt and paprika, garnish with chives and serve immediately. Serves 4.

5 Brilliant Ways to Make the Best Avocado Toast

Super-hot and showing no signs of cooling down, avocado toast is trendy, splashed across social media and menus of hipster restaurants. Maybe it&aposs time for an upgrade of this breakfast snack that got its start in Australia. Much like the way that a grilled cheese sandwich can be so much more than bread and dairy, avocado toast is easy to reinvent. Let&aposs start with the basic and explore some more advanced versions.

First off, you should know that "avo toast" is the preferred slang for the dish, and the hashtag (#avotoast) under which you&aposll find plenty of gorgeous social media pictures of this simple dish. The easiest way to prepare the dish is with a mashed up avocado spread atop toasted bread, and finished with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

At stage two, we&aposre already flipping the script. This next-level avocado toast leaves the green tropical fruit un-smashed, opting instead to go the sliced route. However, things get creative with slices of cheddar cheese, which get toasted atop the bread before receiving the crowning avocdo wedges to create a gooey, tangy, snackable plate.

3. Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon

Take your basic avocado toast, and marry it with another breakfast classic: smoked salmon. If it works on a bagel as lox or nova, then why not on avocado toast? The creamy avocado matches perfectly with the salty, smoky fish.
