I’m one of those #basic millennials who absolutely L-O-V-E-S Avocado Breakfast Toast. It’s literally the number one reason why I haven’t bought my own house yet because I spend loads of money on avocados to my feed my habit.
What’s not to love?! It’s deliciously creamy and rich yet light and healthy. Plus it’s quick, easy, and takes pretty much zero effort to prepare — which makes it the perfect breakfast or tasty snack.

How to Make Avocado Breakfast Toast
This goes without saying — but choose ripe avocados to make your avocado toast.
You can tell an avocado is ripe and ready to eat by pressing down ever so lightly on the skin with your thumb. It should yield to the gentle pressure, but immediately retain its shape.
If your finger leaves a indentation, the fruit is overripe. If the avocado is too firm and doesn’t yield to a tender squeeze, it’s underripe.
To speed up the ripening process, place the avocado in a brown paper bag with a fruit that releases ethylene gas (apples, bananas, tomatoes).
How to Cut an Avocado
To cut an avocado like a true pro: use a sharp chef’s knife and slice the avocado lengthwise until you reach the pit. Then rotate the avocado (making sure to keep the knife steady) to cut all the way around it.
Twist the two halves apart and remove the pit by firmly striking it with the heel (back portion of the blade’s edge) of your knife.
Next, it’s time to remove the avocado from its skin — and it’s super easy! Simply use a spoon to gently loosen the skin off the the fruit and scoop it out into a bowl. Now, it’s time for the actual recipe!
The acid in the lemon juice prevents the avocado from oxidizing and adds a nice hint of tanginess which balances out all that richness.
Step 2: Toast a slice or two of your favorite bread. I prefer to use thick cut white bread — but it’s all up to you — so #BYOC (Be Your Own Chef)!
Step 3: Spread the mashed avocado on top of your toast. You can enjoy as is, or top with some extra love — like a fried egg, or crispy bacon or roasted cherry tomatoes with a balsamic glaze!
