This week’s theme, “put an avocado on it.” Easy and healthy; you are going to love these Open Faced Avocado Spread Sandwiches! Imagine biting into a generous layer of avocado spread and through crusty toast with that subtle crunch… you can’t help but close your eyes and smile.

It’s a good idea to keep a stash of tried-and-true quick recipes for really busy or lazy days. These sandwiches can be assembled in under 10 minutes and they are perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. Oh and if you’re a late night snacker, you should keep these in mind.

I’m sharing 5 of our favorite toppings but you can make these sandwiches with nearly anything you can dream up. They’re so easy and tasty. That drizzle of extra virgin olive oil at the end is delicious; don’t skip it. P.S. Make the avocado sandwiches even healthier by using multi-grain or whole wheat bread.

Ingredients for Avocado Spread Sandwiches:

Fresh bread, sliced into 8 to 10 half-inch slices (8-10 slices of bread)
2 Ripe Avocados, pittend and peeled
1/8 tsp salt, or to taste (we love sea salt)
1 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Black pepper to taste, optional
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, to drizzle over the top

Fantastic Topping options

(you have to try all of these):
Eggs, sunny side up (yolks loose) I suppose you can scramble them if you wish 😉
Fresh Spinach, rinsed and dried
Baby Tomatoes, sliced
Fresh cilantro sprigs
Radishes, thinly sliced

How to Make Open-Faced Avocado  Spread Sandwiches:

1. In a medium bowl, mash together 2 ripe avocados. A potato masher is the fastest route.

3. Lightly toast your sliced bread (if desired) with a small pat of butter until the edges are golden brown.

4. Add a generous layer of avocado spread over each piece of toast. Add your desired toppings, then drizzle each piece of toast with extra virgin olive oil and top with freshly cracked black pepper. So so good

      Do you just infuse the oil with garlic or do you purchase a special garlic oil? That sounds amazing! Thanks so much for sharing your tip! Reply

            This might sound odd, but I topped the avocado spread with some crumbled feta cheese, and it was fantastic! The salty, sharp feta and the creamy avocado were a great contrast.

    What incredibly beautiful variety you’ve got there, so many ideas for a healthy snack! I love it. Is that a homemade loaf of bread too? Looks gorgeous. Reply

      Thank you Julia 🙂 This post was kind of a last minute thing so it’s not homemade but it was a loaf from Zeppole Bakery. It was quite good, but I think they would be incredible with fresh home-baked bread. Yum! Girl, you’re making me hungry! Reply

  • May 12, 2014

    Avocado and Tomato are my fav! I have it couple times a week with plenty of freshly ground pepper. With cup of tea 🙂 Will have to try the other combos. Looks delish! Reply

      That’s the one I gravitate toward the most also. It’s almost like having guacamole on toast, but classier ;). Reply

    That “glazunia” (sunny side up egg) is so mouth-watering in your picture!! I love this idea. Very fresh and healthy! I think radishes are not appreciated enough here in North America, but they are so fresh and crunchy. Really great “kanapki” idea.

    P.S Before your blog design change, when I left comments, it would remember my information (name, e-mail, etc.) but now I have to re-type them every time. Any way to change that? Reply

      I agree, radishes don’t get the attention they deserve. Thanks for the tip! I’m looking into the comment issue right now. I wonder if it is a browser specific issue; what browser are you in? Is it your first comment since the update was completed? If it happens with your next comment, would you let me know. I wonder if it has to do with the browser re-caching the entire site design. When I opened it up in firefox, I had to put all my own credentials in but the second time I wen to test it, it was auto-filling for me. Please let me know if this is the case for you. I’d love to get this figured out. Making my site user-friendly is really important to me. Thank you Julia! 🙂 Reply

        I’m using Firefox as well and it’s not the first comment since the site change.. even now, if I try leaving a comment anywhere on the site, the fields are all empty 🙂 Not a huge deal, but it was cool when it auto-filled for me before! Reply

          Hi Yasmin, I’m not sure what you mean by costed. If you are asking about the cost to make, it is in US dollars. I hope that answers your question. Reply
