Avocado Toast Four Ways

Avocado Toast Four Ways - Great ideas for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. | Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

Is avocado toast on your radar?

It seems that everywhere I go on the internet, I'm running into avocado toast.

I'm a little bent out of shape, because this food craze,
which has clearly replaced the kale smoothie as the "it" food,
is something I invented years ago. 
That's right, I did.

When I used to bring my lunch to work, 
I'd always take some whole wheat bread, an avocado, 
and whatever leftovers I had in the fridge. 
I'd mash the avocado, schmear it on the bread, and top it with the leftovers.
That's exactly what avocado toast is...
mashed avocado on toast with any topping you can think of.

With no Pinterest back then,
there was no way for me to announce my creation.
And so, I will not go down in history as the inventor of avocado toast. 
Too bad.
But I know I was.  
And that's all that matters.

There's really no recipe here, and it's hard to screw up.
It pretty much works with anything --
except possibly chocolate cake,
but since I haven't tried that, I can't really knock it.  
Who knows, it could work.

Just in case you're having a hard time coming up with toppings, 
let me give you a head start by showing you four ways 
I've enjoyed avocado toast recently. 
With each version, I mashed the avocado, leaving it chunky;
seasoned it with salt and pepper,
and added a teaspoon of lemon juice.
One large avocado is enough for two pieces of bread.

Here's the best thing about avocado toast...
you can eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack.

Now that I'm home from vacation,
I've got to go back to eating healthy.
I did not deprive myself of a thing when I was away.
I want to tell you all about it, but I have to wait
until I reveal the winner of the Where In The World Is Ms. Toody contest,
to let you know where I was.
If you haven't entered my giveaway yet, please do!
I can't wait to mail off my goodie box to someone,

and I hope that someone is YOU!
 We'll "toast" the winner!

 What would you put on top of your avocado toast?

  4. These all look great, Amy! I'm jotting down ingredients.

    One of my favorite breakfast is to toast good sourdough bread, add your smear of mashed avocado with lime and chopped jalapeño, next scrambled eggs with chives, then leftover grilled or smoked salmon. Delicious!

    I thought Al Gore invented Avocado Toast?
