Recipe Tips

Ripe and Ready Avocados: Opt for avocados that are ripe but not overripe. They should yield slightly to gentle pressure. Too firm or too mushy avocados won’t spread well on the toast.

Season, Season, Season: Don’t skimp on the seasoning! Salt and pepper are your best friends when it comes to avocados. They bring out the natural flavors and elevate the taste.

Experiment with Bread: While sourdough is a classic choice, don’t hesitate to try different types of bread—whole grain, multigrain, rye, or even a baguette. The right bread can elevate your toast experience.
