Breakfast is, as we all know, the most important meal you’ll eat all day. A wholesome breakfast gives you the fuel you need to accomplish your tasks and goals whether at work or around the house, and it ensures you’re awake and alert right up until lunchtime. The only thing not to love about breakfast is that typical breakfast foods–eggs, pancakes, waffles–don’t give you a whole lot of room to get creative or try something different, and after a while, breakfast can get a little boring.
Avocados from Mexico is changing all of that with fresh ideas for breakfast using avocados, like this super easy and delicious avocado toast recipe:
You will need:
- 1 fully ripened avocado from Mexico, halved, pitted and peeled
- Ground black pepper
- 2 large slices bread, toasted
- Optional: 2 slices bacon, cooked and halved, or 2 tablespoons chopped tomato
In a bowl, coarsely mash avocado with a fork; season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide avocado onto toast and spread to cover; cut each slice in half.
If desired, tuck a piece of bacon into avocado on each toast half, or slice tomato over top and serve.
