The Simple Joys of Avocado Toast

A meal that I was really into this summer that I kinda forgot about over the course of fall semester is avocado toast. While this meal is often stereotyped as “basic,” I promise it really does live up to the hype.

My preferred way to eat avocado toast is what is pictured above: mashed avocado on thinly sliced white bread, topped with salt/pepper and feta cheese, with roma tomatoes on the side. The fats in the avocado make it so filling, and I’m easily satisfied for hours afterwards. For me, the game changer is the feta cheese: I put feta on just about everything, so it would make sense that I would put it on my toast, too.

Eggs (scrambled or fried) are also egg-celent (ha, ha) sides to add to your avocado toast. You can easily put them on top for a fresh taste combination or keep them on the side to enjoy separately. When I’m not in a rush, scrambled eggs are a breakfast favorite of mine because they’re just so easy. I haven’t mastered fried eggs yet, but maybe soon.

When I’m feeling particularly spicy, I’ll add hot sauce to my avocado toast combo. My personal favorite brand is Louisiana Hot Sauce, but any hot sauce will do. I find that the heat from the hot sauce balances with the avocado and feta cheese and isn’t too overpowering. (But I’ve also been eating Louisiana Hot Sauce daily for 3 years now, so maybe I’m just used to it.)

How do you eat your avocado toast? I would love some suggestions!
