Here’s How to Make the Best Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is a millennial favorite and it can be seen at any hipster restaurant. The creamy spread perfectly complements toasted bread. Believe it or not, there are some ways to make avocado toast even tastier. Keep reading to learn how to elevate this meal.

Picking Avocados

The first secret to making amazing avocado toast is using ripe, but not overly ripe Hass avocados. Look for ones that can be squeezed, but aren’t super mushy. If your avocado is browning, cut those parts out when you open it before mashing the rest of it.

Good Bread

The best bread to use for avocado toast is thick-slicked whole grain bread. Make sure it’s well toasted before you slather your avocado onto it.

Mash You Avocado Separately

Mashed avocado will taste better than sliced avocado, and whatever you do, don’t mash it on the toast. You can get holes and break your toast into pieces this way. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, scoop the flesh into a bowl, and mash it up with a fork.

Don’t Forget the Salt

Each avocado half needs at least a pinch of salt. It’s even better when topped with flaky sea salt.

Extra Additives

To make your avocado toast even tastier, mix in a pinch of garlic powder with the avocado or rub a peeled garlic glove over your toast before adding the avocado. You can also add fresh herbs like basil, cilantro, dill, or parsley. Other things you can add include a fried egg, picked onions, radishes, jalapenos, hot sauce, or sliced cherry tomatoes.
