My mom is always posting her food creations on Instagram. Often times they are photos of open-faced sandwiches, like radishes on white bread with butter and salt, or variations of avocado toast. And while avocado toast is 100 percent delicious on it's own, how much fun would it be to have a brunch gathering with friends and let them design their own? Think of the toast as a blank canvas for your appetite!

Technique tip: Take your knife and slice the avocado length-wise and then, if your knife is sharp enough, stab the blade of knife into the pit and lightly turn the knife to remove the pit. Use a spoon to scoop out flesh.

Swap option: You can get very creative with bread and toppings here, swapping out anything you'd like.

Ingredients

  • Toasts

    • 8 slices bread (sourdough, whole wheat, etc.)
    • 4 avocados
    • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 lemon, juiced
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings

    • Radishes, sliced
    • Hard-boiled eggs, sliced
    • Smoked salmon
    • Cherry tomatoes, sliced
    • Goat cheese, crumbled
    • Bacon, crumbled
    • Cucumber, sliced
    • Crushed red pepper flakes

Preparation

Toast the slices of bread.

Slice avocados in half, remove the pits and scoop the insides out into a bowl. Stir in olive oil, lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spread avocado mixture on each toast. Place toasts on a platter and serve along side toppings.
