I’ve lived in Southern California my whole life, so it’s pretty much a requirement that I love avocados. California is home to vast amounts of avocado groves, and we are neighbors to regions that are also big growers of this delicious fruit (yes, NOT a vegetable!). Aside from all that, avocados are just plain delicious and can be included at almost any meal. One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is on toast! If you’ve never say down with some toasty bread, smothered in avocado than you’re missing out. Here are some delicious recipes you should try.
1. Avocado Toast With Egg
If you’re short on time, but still want a breakfast that packs a lot of protein and is filling, then you need this avocado toast with egg in your life. Simply fry up an egg to your liking and then lay on top a piece of toasted bread that’s been covered in mashed avocado and add some pepper and hot sauce. While this may be a little messy, it’s worth every finger-licking bite!

6. Cream Cheese & Everything Bagel Salt
This right here- my FAV avocado toast recipe. Years ago, my former coworkers and I would gather in the morning and make “old man bagels,” using everything bagels topped with cream cheese, avocado mash and lemon pepper. This is the perfect alternative when you don’t have bagels in the house! It’s just as good with lemon pepper if you don’t have everything bagel seasoning, and will always leave you feeling happy and full.
