Is Avocado Toast just...avocado on toast?

#1 Post by Brandon R » October 25th, 2018, 8:37 am

I've heard about it and seen it on menus, but haven't ordered it or looked closely at the "ingredients." Is it really just some avocado sliced or spread on toast? What's the big deal? I love avocado and could see it being very good on toast, but ordering it at a restaurant? Not sure. Unless I'm missing something, of course. Can anyone enlighten me as to the reason behind what I perceive to be a new, hot food "fad?"

Some oil. Some seasoning. Some cream cheese some times. ;)

I've ordered it out and made it at home several times. I like it. Pretty simple.

Avocado
Salt
Pepper
Garlic clove
Olive oil

Smash all of that up in a bowl. Toast a bread of your choosing. Spread it onto the toast. Sprinkle with a course salt of your choosing.

You can obviously adapt as you desire. For instance, sometimes I'll cut in cherry tomato.

When ordering at a restaurant I usually get a side of bacon for the ultimate chest grabber.

I looked up recipes for avocado toast once, and found it was primarily some combination of avocados with tomatoes, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I said to myself that sounded lame, asked my husband to make his famous guac loaded with tomatoes and onions, and put that on toasted bread instead.

The moral of the story is that guac toast > avocado toast.

The best avocado toast is as follows:

Toast
Smashed or thinly sliced avocados
Drizzle lemon juice (fresh)
Drizzle toasted sesame oil
Sesame seeds
Salt/Pepper

The. Best.

Avocado toast is life in LA. Every place does it differently.

I just had avocado, lightly cooked abalone, pickled red onion and cucumber with yuzu zest. Was nice

My wife makes it home whenever she's up to doing brunch on a weekend.

Avocado and salmon pastrami on toasted rye, with the usual seasonings. Love it!

About once a month the coworking place where our startup is - which is full of young tech startup folks - has Toast Wednesday for the free breakfast and it is insanely popular ... I don't get it. I do like the regular days which serve about 10 variations of bagels and cc. Then again, they also had a "Retro Fluffernutter Snack" day ... so clearly I am not of the right generation to appreciate these amenities!

BACON.
and some of the other stuff. (Surprised we got this far without a mention)

At the risk of thread drift *cough* this also reminds me of ‘pea toast ‘ we had at a restaurant in Quebec City a while back which was actually made from pea flour somehow. More interesting than wow (came with killer pea broth so the dish overall was good).

I do remember a popular sandwich with the thick bacon rolled in pea flour at the Toronto public market. Quite good, although I expected/hoping for a bolder flavor from the sandwich.

$1.50 for the avocado from the corner fruit cart.

The coffee shop near me serves it with a fried egg on top. Since that’s the only place I’ve had it I always assumed that was standard. It’s good.

I make it at home with avocado, pickled red onion, a touch of soy sauce, a tiny drop of sesame oil, thinly sliced cucumber, salt and rice seasoning sprinkled on top. It's delicious. There are a zillion variations.

Gasp!!! You hating on frugality??!?!?! So sad!!!!

Sugar also used in many savory recipes. Why don't you sprinkle some of that on top of your overpriced avocado? You wouldn't evvn have to buy the sugar as many establishments put them out, gratis, for cost-sensitive customers to enjoy at their hearts' content.

Yu welcom.

We do it a bunch of different ways. One of our favorites is grilled bread, avocado smear once the bread has cooled a little, roasted golden beets for a little sweetness and nice flaky salt. Usually pair with gruner, champ or sancerre.

Love avocado toast at home. Thinly sliced radish is a good addition.

We recently few business class out of SF and were in the AA Executive Lounge. They announced over the loudspeaker that an avocado toast station would be starting shortly. Watching people berate the woman making avocado toast from a cart in the airport lounge -- for not putting on enough avocado or spreading it correctly -- was the quintessential douche/elitist moment. Really hard to watch.

The meetings that must have taken place to convince the AA exec's that they needed a trolley serving avocado toast in lounges, must have been something.

I had not flown first class since I was 10 years old and never have access to these lounges. I just figured this is how the 1% live, avocado toast carts everywhere they go.

Avocado toast carts will be popping up on every corner. This is the future of trendy neighbourhood food trucks.

That upscale re-presentation validates the diner, and drives the aforementioned profit margin, especially when the toast is bread saved from the prior-evening dinner service.
