Seems almost silly to post this recipe but when I was showing my kiddos how to make this, I realized that a couple of steps are key to making avocado toast perfection so thought I would share.
Recipe for Avocado Toast
Do not use a toaster. When most hear the word toast, they assume a toaster is involved. Well not for this recipe. Try the technique below for “toasting the bread” in the oven.
Where to find quality sourdough bread. Most of us don’t typically have sourdough bread on hand. Make a special trip and grab an artisan variety from Whole Foods or Sprouts. The type of bread you use makes a huge difference. It’s so worth it!
- Slices of Sourdough Bread
- Olive Oil, for drizzling
- Ripe Avocado(s), halved and pitted
- 1 Fresh Garlic Clove, cut in half
- Handful of Cherry Tomatoes, halved and pressed between two paper towels to remove excess juice and seeds
- Crisp Butcher Sliced Bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 Fresh Lime, halved
- Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
- Truffle Salt or Kosher Sea Salt Flakes
Preheat oven to broil. Arrange slices of sourdough bread onto baking sheet. Drizzle each slice lightly with olive oil.
Place baking sheet in oven approximately 8” under broiler. Toast until lightly golden brown, typically 4-5 minutes. Be sure and watch the toast closely while in the oven as it can brown quickly.
Remove from oven. While bread is hot, immediately rub exposed side of halved garlic clove over each slice of toast. The garlic will literally melt onto each slice and adds such great flavor.
Slice avocado in shell using a knife, scoop out with spoon and place a couple of avocado slices onto each piece of toast.
Follow by adding a few cherry tomatoes and crumbled bacon to each piece of toast.
Squeeze fresh lime juice over top of each piece of toast.
Finish by sprinkling crushed red pepper flakes and salt across each piece of toast.
Our kids absolutely love this breakfast. Hope your family enjoys it too.
