But I wasn’t feeling it for breakfast.   On a girl’s weekend, with the insistence of my “ever so on-trend'”18-year old niece Katie, I decided to jump in with both feet by making a variety of avocado toasts to taste test.    “My Girls” were all in.    Here’s how it went:

1. Plain with salt & pepper and a squeeze of lime.

This was the first one we tried. It was simple and easy, super creamy and a thumbs up.


2. Cherry tomatoes with basil, balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper.

This one didn’t feel like breakfast. It felt like light lunch or even an afternoon appetizer. It was good but it felt odd eating it in the morning.

3. Mango with a squeeze of lime and chili powder.

The mango made it exotic and tropical and with the chili powder, I felt like I was in Hawaii.

4. Soft poached egg with everything bagel seasoning.

This was just what the breakfast doctor ordered. I love a poached egg but the avocado was the creme da la creme, like “Butta”.

The verdict: It’s Delish! We love it! I love it! It will definitely be on my breakfast menu rotation. It was super easy and quick.   Number 1- Plain Avocado Toast was good,  creamy and smooth, a little bland in flavor but still really good. Number 2- Tomato Basil Avocado Toast reminded us all of Italian bruschetta. Would be great as an appetizer.  Number 3- Mango Chilli Lime Avocado Toast,  was a tasty breakfast treat.   Sweet and a little spicy.   THE WINNER was Number 4 – Poached Egg and Everything Seasoning Avocado Toast. It was the embodiment of a savory breakfast. The toast was crunchy with the creamy avocado contrast. The Everything Bagel Seasoning was a subtle nudge of flavor.  But soft poached egg with its velvet yolk spilling over the entire toast was the “pièce de résistance”.   We all agreed, except “egg hater Katie”, that number 4 was the BEST!   How bout you?   What’s your take on Avocado Toast?  What’s your favorite combo?
