Tasty Toasty Avocado... Try it, you'll like it!

Here's an easy snack I whipped up the other day and won't be abandoning any time soon. Really good! Well, really good if you like avocados!

Tear two (Thomas') English muffins in half and toast them.
Cut an avocado into quarters, peel.
Place an avocado section on each English muffin and mash with a fork.
Dust to taste with garlic powder and black truffle salt.
Toast avocado with a kitchen torch until the peaks are dark and toasty.

  1. Sounds yummy! I buy the bag of avocados from Costco and am always looking for a new way to use up the last 1 or 2 before they go bad.

      Same here! The avocados are generally huge and I can only eat half of one per day.

      I also like it on toast but sprinkled with black salt. It's my vegan version of eggs on toast.

    2. I love avocado toast...

          So you cook the avocado, or you put a poached egg in the cavity after it's poached?

            Put poached egg in cavity. Mayo and peeled shrimp ringing the cavity make a GREAT APP. i USED TO HAVE AN AVACODO TREE IN MY YARD. WE COULDN'T EAT THEM ALL.!

                At least, it is to me...

        2. I love avocado toast too. Toast good double fiber whole wheat breat, schmear with a very thin layer of Best Foods and top with avocado slices. season with Lawry's seasoned salt and mash slightly.

          2. Sounds pretty cool to me. I will certainly try it. Is it OK if I put some butter on the muffin before the avocado?
