As a kid this was a favorite Sunday morning breakfast. On Saturday my dad loved to cook huge breakfasts. My mom cooked Monday through Friday...but on Sundays while Mom was putting on her makeup and heels and Dad was tying his tie we had an easy-to-prepare breakfast such as Avocado Toast. In the '60s avocados were still a little strange for most Americans and were not as easy to get. Lucky for us my Uncle George from Lakeside CA grew his own. We treated them like gold. For Avocado Toast we used only about 1/8 of the fruit. You can use 1/2 or even more per toast. A dense, hearty wheat bread works well but I like all kinds.
- 1 avocado, quartered
- 4 slices bread, toasted medium well
- 1 lemon, quartered
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- Mash the avocado and spread it evenly on the toast pieces.
- Squirt the lemon juice over the avocado. (Optional: Peel and place the lemon in pieces on top, after the squeeze. I started this when I was a kid and still love it this way. Very lemony!).
- Salt and pepper. Eat immediately before it gets soggy. This dish is best prepared by the person eating it so they are available to eat it right away!
YUM! I just had this for breakfast! I had a couple avocados sitting around and was out of eggs, so I was trying to figure out how to prepare them for breakfast. I didn't have a fresh lemon so I used a little splash of bottled and also added some crushed red pepper. Spread on a thick piece of whole wheat toast - so good!
