How to Make Avocado Toast

The Basics: Most of us know how to make simple avocado toast – slice bread, toast until golden brown, remove the pit, mush avocado on toast, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Avocado toast is simply perfect but if you’d like to level up your usual avocado toast recipe, rub the toast with garlic before adding the mashed avocado.

This little trick adds a little something special and will really make it the best avocado toast you’ve ever had! 

Toppings for Avocado Toast – Avocado toast is great when it’s simple with just a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, some flaky sea salt & ground black pepper, and a squeeze of lemon, but change it up with any of the variations below.

Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 5 minutes

Total Time 10 minutes

  • Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.

  • Toast the bread to your liking.

  • While the toast is still hot, lightly rub the surface with the cut side of the fresh garlic clove.

  • Scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon and use a fork to mash it onto the toast.

  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • If desired, drizzle with fresh lemon juice and olive oil or add the toppings below. Serve immediately.

The avocado can be mashed as smooth or as chunky as you’d like it. Avocado oxidizes (turns brown) quickly, so mashed avocado should be eaten right away.
If using only half of the avocado, leave the pit in the half that will be refrigerated for later use. This will help keep it fresh a bit longer.
Optional Avocado Toast Toppings:

  • everything bagel seasoning
  • fried egg and crispy bacon bits
  • lox, capers, minced onion
  • tomato, bocconcini, basil, balsamic glaze
  • sriracha and honey
