 I am a huge avocado fan. It’s one of those tasty and filling healthy snacks that I never tire of. It can make a boring salad taste better, a creamy delicious dressing or eaten on its own with some olive oil and pepper. So many possibilities. All of them yummy! Avocado toast is bound to impress!

So I was considering having a nice family brunch gathering before an afternoon dinner at the house. I began trying to think up of something light but filling and tasty, a kind of appetizer to keep us going until dinner which will probably happen around 3ish. Something that can be easily whipped up and enough to feed a crowd. I had the idea of doing some nice avocado toasts. Since there are so many possibilities, I figured they would be ideal as they are suitable for most tastes, with lots of different topping options.

Here are the ones I came up with –

Well I really enjoyed making and eating these. They are really quick and easy to prepare, look great on the plate and are actually surprisingly filling so you would only need a few quarter pieces per person. I figured that would be enough to keep people going until the dinner. They are ideal for brunch so I would probably serve them around midday if having dinner around 3ish.

Basically, these are a great snack any time you are peckish and also make a good lunch. 2 half slices, as in one piece of toast with fillings is enough. A nice healthy and tasty avocado toast is a hearty lunch or brunch. Perfect party food for random get togethers.

Bon Appétit mon amis!
