I know, avocado toast is nothing new. But I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon. I probably was a little late to join the avocado bandwagon, but that’s nothing new – I’m late to all trends. Anyways, during one of our trips to Drift last weekend, I ordered the avocado toast for breakfast. In between sips of coffee and bites of my bread, I told Big Guy that I was going to recreate their avocado toast at home. And I didn’t wait long to get in the kitchen with some avocados and toast.
Now Drift did not give me any secrets or recipe, however, I’m sure they would if I asked. So this is my interpretation of their toast based on taste and sight.
Mash 1/2 an avocado in a bowl. Season with a little salt (more will come later!). Toast your bread. Top the toast with the avocado. Spring with salt and pepper. Finely chop a few mixed nuts. Sprinkle those on top along with pumpkin seeds. Drizzle with 1 teaspoon of your best EVOO.
Oh, and a poached egg on top kind of makes this insane.
In a good way.
