If you haven’t tried avocado toast yet, what are you waiting for? If you have and maybe are even a little bored by it, time to try these five variations on the avocado toast theme. You won’t be sorry!



The Classic

  • 1 slice hearty bread (sourdough, gluten-free or whole wheat is recommended)
  • ½ ripe avocado
  • ⅛ teaspoon sea salt

The Spicy

  • classic ingredients (above)
  • 12 slices of turkey bacon
  • hot sauce
  • one fried egg

The Lox

  • classic ingredients (above)
  • cream cheese (goat, regular or vegan)
  • smoked salmon (wild)
  • ¼ red onion, thinly sliced
  • Everything But the Bagel Seasoning

The Veg

  • classic ingredients (above)
  • radish, thinly sliced
  • “Jammy” soft-boiled egg (or hard-boiled egg)
  • Maldon flaky sea salt

The Caprese

  • classic ingredients (above)
  • whipped feta (goat, regular or vegan)
  • ¼ tomato, sliced
  • several leaves fresh basil
  • optional balsamic vinegar


  1. Toast bread until golden and crisp.
  2. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit.  With a spoon, scoop out the flesh and place in a small bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork until it’s smooth. Add in ⅛ teaspoon of salt.
  3. Spread avocado on top of the slice of toast. Enjoy in its classic form, or choose to make any of the variations — or all of them!
  4. For “The Spicy,” use a griddle to fry one egg and 1–2 slices of turkey bacon. Add on top of avocado toast, then drizzle some hot sauce on top.
  5. For “The Lox,” spread cream cheese on top of the avocado, followed by smoked salmon, sliced red onion and the bagel seasoning.
  6. For “The Veg,” first make the soft-boiled or hard-boiled egg. Add sliced radish, sliced egg and Maldon flaky sea salt on top.
  7. For “The Caprese,” first make the whipped feta. Place the feta into a food processor. Add in 3 Tablespoons olive oil and process until smooth and creamy. Spread the whipped feta over the avocado, followed by sliced tomato, fresh basil and drizzle some balsamic vinegar on top.
