Simple Avocado Toast


  • 2 pieces of bread
  • 1 Ripe avocado (preferably medium or large)
  • Lime juice
  • Salt
  • Hot sauce (optional, I prefer Cholula)
  • A fried egg/egg white (optional)


  1. Toast your bread as desired. I find that toastier bread leads to a better flavor dynamic with the toppings
  2. As you wait for the toast to finish, cut your avocado in half length-wise, and twist to open. If you have a sharp, heavy knife, whack the pit and twist to remove. If you do not, or are worried about cutting yourself, cut the half of the avocado with the pit into small slivers so that it pops out, or remove it carefully with a spoon.
  3. Once your toast is ready, scoop your avocado out of its skin and place ½ of the avocado on each piece of bread.
  4. Using a fork, mush the avocado and spread around the toast, dispersing as you see fit.
  5. Add your toppings to your taste and enjoy!
