Smashed avocado is pretty simple - it's literally what it sounds like, and combined with feta, lemon juice and a little salt and pepper is so good. You can't go wrong with this one.
- 2-4 slices of toast (unbuttered) depending on the size. I use burgen bread which is TINY so I used two slices. Serve this on turkish bread if you want to be fancy.
- 1 avocado
- 2 tbs feta
- Squeeze of lemon juice
- Salt and pepper
Add bacon or ham. Smoked salmon fancies up any breakfast. Add an egg on top. Or even try this on top of scrambled eggs - that could actually be quite nice. You could even use this as a component of a breakfast tortilla....my brain is whirring with possibilities right now...
- Start the toast
- Scoop the flesh of an avocado into a bowl, add feta, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.
- Using a fork, smash it into a mix! Leave a few chunks to make it feel rustic.
- Spread it onto your toast.
And voila! Simple smashed avocado breakfast.
My Take Aways
This meal literally took 3 minutes to make. The smashed avocado and feta are ready by the time the toast pops. It could even be made on a weekday without causing hassle, because it would be plated by the time the jug boiled for coffee. A bit of ham on top wouldn't add any extra time. Adding a poached egg on top would mean that you'd likely be satisfied with just one slice of toast. It would add a couple of extra minutes, but if you started the egg first then did all the other steps while the egg cooked then I think it would still be pretty quick overall. I'm considering using this as an easier alternative to guacamole in a breakfast tortilla in the next few weeks. If I do, then I'll post it.
