Avocados – Choose soft and ripe avocados with intact skin. Mash or arrange slices as desired. To switch up the flavors, add in a DIY seasoning like everything bagel seasoning or even homemade lemon pepper seasoning.

Bread – Any bread from whole wheat to a slice of sourdough is perfect for avocado toast! Or make homemade garlic toast or plain white bread.

How to Make Avocado Toast

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

Feeling Fancy?

Avocado toast is simply perfect but if you’d like to level up your usual avocado toast recipe, rub the toast with garlic before adding the mashed avocado.

This little trick adds a little something special and will really make it the best avocado toast you’ve ever had! 

Toppings for Avocado Toast – Avocado 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 change it up with 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


  • Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.
  • Toast the bread to your liking.
  • While the toast is still hot, lightly rub the surface with the cut side of the fresh garlic clove.
  • Scoop out the avocado flesh with a spoon and use a fork to mash it onto the toast.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • If desired, drizzle with fresh lemon juice and olive oil or add the toppings below. 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 eaten 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 fresh 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
