Avocado toast may be all the rage, but there are only so many times you can literally just eat avocado on top of toast. Luckily, it hardly takes any extra time (or ingredients) to make your avocado toast exciting again. With just a handful of toppings, you can take your toast from basic to fancy — and not to mention totally Instagram-worthy.
Here are 10 easy avocado toast recipes you have to try.
1. Almonds and olive oil
2. Everything bagel
If you love everything bagels and avocado toast, get ready for the best of both worlds. Simply spread cream cheese on your toast, add on your avocado, and sprinkle on a blend of everything bagel seasoning.
3. Fried egg and sautéed kale
If you have a little extra time while whipping up your avocado toast, this recipe will make for a filling, healthy, and totally Instagram-able breakfast. Simply add some sautéed kale on top of your avocado and finish it off with a fried egg.
4. Chips and salsa
You may not believe chips and salsa belong on avocado toast, but it’s a surprisingly delicious combination. After you spread your avocado, add your choice of mild, medium, or spicy salsa on top. Top it off by sprinkling crushed tortilla chips over the salsa. You can even get the most out of your bag of tortilla chips by using the crumbs at the bottom, as Kitchn recommends.
5. Caprese salad
Get ready for tons of freshness by turning your avocado toast into a caprese salad. Chop up some cherry tomatoes, spread them evenly over top of your avocado, and sprinkle on shreds of basil. For some added antioxidants and flavor, add on some black pepper to taste.
6. Strawberries and balsamic vinegar
Nothing sounds more like the summer than putting strawberries on … everything. They go surprisingly well on avocado toast — especially with some aged balsamic vinegar drizzled on top.
7. Corn salad and lime
If you have some pre-made or leftover corn salad, it will pair perfectly with avocado on top of toast. Even plain corn kernels will work as a topping. For added flavor, squeeze a slice of lime over it all.
8. Cucumber and hummus
If you’re someone who likes dipping cucumber slices in hummus, try combining it with your avocado toast. According to Shape, hummus and avocado go together harmoniously. Go ahead and spread your favorite flavor of hummus on top of your avocado, and decorate with refreshing slices of cucumber.
9. Hot sauce and lemon
This may sound odd, but hot sauce and lemon come together to add just the kick you might need in the morning. Kitchn recommends a classic hot sauce, Sriracha, or sambal oelek over top of your avocado. Then just squeeze on some lemon and you’re good to go.
10. Quinoa and goat cheese
You might already think of quinoa as a great base to a healthy bowl, but it actually works well as a topping for avocado toast. Add on some goat cheese, and the combination of flavors will definitely have you reaching for another slice.
