Let’s be honest, nothing beats lounging at home all nice and cozy on a weekend morning while cooking up something delish! Being married to a chef definitely has it’s perks and let me tell you, he can whip up a pretty tasty brekkie. Anything from a fluffy omelet, a savory hash, a healthy parfait or to a traditional breakfast of eggs, bacon and potatoes.
But this time, the cooking was left to me! I wanted to make something simple and filling while using the ingredients we had (haven’t done the weekly shopping just yet). One thing you can always find in our kitchen are avocados, we love them! Next, I found the loaf of rye bread and I knew just what to do…avocado toast.
Avocado toast has been all the rage lately. It’s popping up everywhere! But did you know this simple, yet filling breakfast originated in Australia? That’s right mate, this concoction is the go-to dish for many Aussies and can be found on pretty much any breakfast menu just like pancakes are found here on the menus of America.
I simply toasted the rye bread. Smashed an avocado with a fork and added some salt and pepper to taste. Then I added a small amount of lime juice to boost the flavor of the avocado. Once the toast is done, I spread the avocado over the toast, finish with a little crack of pepper, sprinkle of sea salt and crushed red pepper and voila….brekkie is served!
There are many ways to spice up this traditional dish, here are some ideas of things you can add:
- poached or fried egg
- feta or goat cheese
- pico de gallo
- hot sauce
- TJ’s everything but the bagel (tell me you’ve tried this!! Life changing)
Enjoy, from our kitchen to yours.
