Avocado toast makes a quick and healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner for around 250 calories or 5 WW points. Here’s how to make 3 easy avocado toast recipes with toppings like egg, smoked salmon, and tuna.
Technically speaking, you don’t really need me to tell you how to make avocado toast. But now let me ask you this: has that ever stopped me? Of course not. So here you go:
Avocado toast is one of those wonderfully simple “meals” you can make in 10 minutes with as few as two ingredients (avocado and bread). And while that easy combo is delicious, mashed avocado on toast isn’t as filling as it could be. I like to add toppings like egg, smoked salmon, or even tuna to beef up the protein for greater staying power. Here are 3 easy avocado toast recipes that I keep in rotation for a quick, healthy breakfast, lunch, or dinner:
Avocado Toast with Egg and Tomato
This is the avocado toast recipe I make most often because I always have eggs in the fridge. To make it yours: pop a slice of your favorite whole grain bread in the toaster and get to work frying an egg over easy (a runny yolk is especially good on avocado toast). Slice or mash ¼ of an avocado and spread it on your toast. Lay the egg on top, add 2 slices of tomato, and season with a good pinch of salt and pepper. That’s it!
Avocado Toast with Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese
To me, the best bagel is well-toasted with a generous schmear of cream cheese and thin slices of smoked salmon or lox. This avocado toast mimics that winning combo—with mashed avocado, whipped cream cheese, thinly sliced smoked salmon, and a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds for a little crunch.
Avocado Toast with Tuna and Capers
avocado, tuna, thinly sliced red onion, and capers
Canned tuna fish is one thing I always keep on hand for quick, last minute meals, making it an easy addition to classic avocado toast. I spruce it up with sliced red onion and briney capers, but sliced tomatoes and dill pickles would be fantastic, too.
