This week I made my version of Avocado Bacon Toast from Absolutely Avocados by Gaby Dalkin from What’s Gaby Cooking. I love her book! Avocados are one of my favorite things to eat, so this cookbook fits my needs perfectly! I adapted Gaby’s recipe to include bacon and honey. I learned that bacon and avocado make a good match. 😉
At first I thought that this recipe wouldn’t taste too good because I had never tried avocado on plain french bread, but I changed my mind once I tried it.
How do you make Avocado Bacon Toast?
The Avocado Bacon Toast requires only 4 simple steps! Step 1- Lightly toast the baguette slices. Step 2- Spread mashed avocado on the baguette slices. Step 3- Sprinkle pieces of cooked, crispy bacon on top. Step 4- Drizzle honey on top of the avocado and bacon. Easy!
You might think that the addition of honey seems weird. It’s not!!
I overdid the honey on the first piece of toast, so everything I ate tasted really sweet. I liked the many different flavors of this recipe.
Avocado! Bacon! Honey! All on bread! That’s just perfect. Don’t you think so?
This Avocado Bacon Toast tastes so good. It’s great for breakfast or an after-school snack. Kids can easily make this without any help from parents. Kudos to Gaby for the inspiration behind this recipe! Hope her new cookbook sells out everywhere! Now I have to stop writing and go eat some more toast. 😉
And even a kid can make easy recipes with avocados… Like Me!
If you love avocados as much as I do, you might also enjoy my Tortilla Crusted Turkey Cutlets with Spicy Avocado Sauce or these Avocado Egg Salad Tea Sandwiches. This Avocado and Three Bean Salad recipe looks good too. And- OH MY GOSH- look at these Bacon Wrapped Avocados!!!
