How to Make Avocado Toast

The Basics: Most of us know how to make simple avocado toasts – slice bread, toast until golden brown,remove the pit and mush avocado on toast, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Level Up: But if you want to really up your Avocado Toast game, rub the toast with garlic before adding the mashed avocado. This little trick was picked up over the years and adds a little something extra that people can’t put their finger on it. They just know it’s the best Avocado Toast they’ve ever had! :-)

Get Creative: Advocado toast is great when it’s simple with just a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, some flaky sea salt & ground black pepper, and a squeeze of lemon but try adding Ricotta or any of the variations below.

  • 1 avocado ripe
  • 2 slices bread any kind, sourdough is my favorite
  • 1 clove garlic cut in half (skin on)
  • salt and pepper
  • lemon juice optional, from a fresh lemon is best
  • extra virgin olive oil good quality
  • cilantro or parsley finely chopped


  • Cut avocado in half and remove the pit.
  • Toast bread to your liking. While toast is still hot, lightly rub the surface with the cut side of the fresh garlic clove.
  • Use a spoon to scoop avocado flesh out, then a fork to mush it onto the toast.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Top per the notes or squeeze over a bit of lemon juice, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with cilantro or parsley. Serve immediately.


The avocado can be mashed as smooth or as chunky as you’d like it. Avocado oxidizes (turns brown) quickly so mashed avocado should be consumed right away.
If using only half of the avocado, leave the pit in the half that will be refrigerated for later use. This will help keep it a bit longer.
Optional Avocado Toast Toppings:
  • everything bagel seasoning
  • fried egg and crispy bacon bits
  • lox, capers, minced onion
  • tomato, bocconcini, basil, balsamic glaze
  • sriracha and honey
  • strawberries, basil, balsamic

  1. A quick and easy breakfast that tastes good.
    Brown toast with mayo, mashed avocado with sunnyside up egg and salt & pepper – Yum!

  2. I love rye bread toast with butter or peanut butter, I absolutely love avocados, I’m asking for a recipe for a good avocado to spread on my toast. Please send one or a few avocado spreads to use on my rye bread toast. And maybe a avocado pasta salad. Something good for me as I’m trying to lose . I’m shooting for losing 50 pounds. Thank you so much in advance.

  3. So yummy and easy. I left out the lemon juice because I didn’t have any. Have made this for breakfast and it’s so easy! Thanks!5 stars
