Avocado toast with a super flavorful twist!

This is one of those recipes where, by the time I’ve given you the name of it, it’s fairly clear how to make it so I never quite know what to write about!

So I guess we can just look at some photos and have a little chat, right?

Hey! See that?

It’s a home made sourdough loaf!

I know, right? Home made bread? Not even from a bread maker?

No one is more surprised about this than me. But it’s really not that much effort. My neighbor gave me some starter, which I am nurturing in my fridge, and I have dough kneading hooks on my hand mixer, so all of it is just really low maintenance. Every weekend, I now produce one of these loaves.

This is my fourth loaf so far, it’s still a little… artisan(?)… looking, with randomly massive holes, and it might be undercooked in the middle.

So I’ll just leave you to source some nice bread of your choosing for your avocado toast. And maybe once I’ve got the technique perfected we can talk about home made sourdough again!

Avocado toast with a super flavorful twist!

Sourdough is the perfect base for avocado toast, but ciabatta and baguette can be great too, and even a bagel. So work with what you’ve got!

I usually like my avocado toast fairly plain, with just some chili flakes and olive oil. But today I decided to give it a big flavor boost with fried capers and kalamata olives, and it was totally delicious. It doesn’t feel very brunch-y, with all the strong flavors, but it would be a perfect light dinner or evening snack with a glass of white wine to enhance the tastes.

Or you could make mini toasts as a party snack. That would be awesome.

Do you have any interesting avocado toast suggestions? I’d love to hear them, so please leave a comment to share!
