Avocado toast is an easy, nutritious breakfast anyone can make! Here are 12 different variations of avocado toast with all sorts of toppings. High in healthy fats and filling!

It’s often more filling than your regular toast due to all the healthy fats avocados have. On top of that, it’s full of dietary fiber which helps us fill up and prepares your digestion for the day to come.

So, today, I’m sharing my favorite 12 avocado toast recipes with different toppings, both savory and sweet.

How to Make Avocado Toast

  1. Start with picking the bread that you’ll like. Whole grain bread is more nutritious, thus will keep you full for longer. I personally like my bread seeded.
  2. Pick good avocados. I usually buy my avocados green and let them ripen before using. If you do buy a ripe avocado, just make sure to use it in the next two days.
  3. Mash avocado in a separate bowl. That will make it smoother and easier to spread on the bread. However, you can just mash it inside the avocado shell. I show how to do that in the video below.
  4. Find a good setting for toasting your bread. If you’re trying a new bread, it might need your settings adjusted. If the bread is frozen, make sure you increase the time of toasting.
  5. Use salt, herbs, and sauce you love. It’s the little extra ingredients that make each toast special. Feel free to improvise with sauces you have.
