Who doesn’t love avocado toast. With a million variations and counting, there’s no real hard and fast recipe, just general notions and ideas of what can be done.
The main thing I always stress is: buy good avocados, good bacon, and great bread. The last thing you want is mealy avocado, a gritty egg, and thin stringy bacon on soggy white bread that collapses under it. So choose your bread wisely. I’m always a fan of sourdough for avocado toast. As I mentioned, don’t skimp on the bacon! You want juicy thick cut bacon, vs the paper thin flavorless crispy strips. While you’re splurging – buy the good spices. Let’s face it, you’re not eating avocado toast because you’re on a tight budget, so you may as well do it right.
I really like Dukkah spice and cumin on my avocado toast! It adds a spicy and savory zing to the richness of the avocado. Also, it’s best to not over mash the avocado. Texture is a good thing when it comes to avocado. It stops it from tasting like greasy mush and keeps it feeling a bit more firm and substantial.
Like everyone else, I’ve had more variations of this dish than I can recall, but my favorites are always the ones topped with egg. It adds a layer of complexity to the flavor and is a hearty treat that carries you into midday. That said, you could easily swap for a gluten free bread or drop the egg for a vegan option.
Whether you’re making this for yourself or serving it for brunch, consider pairing it with a fizzy adraki nimboo pani to make it all around tasty and better than any cafe serving a poor version of both for nearly triple the $$$.
