For the Sandwiches/Spread:

  • 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

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl, mash together 2 ripe avocados. A potato masher is the fastest route.
  2. Stir 1/8 tsp salt (or to taste) and 1 tsp fresh lemon juice into the mashed avocados until well combined.
  3. Lightly toast your sliced bread (if desired) with a small pat of butter until the edges are golden brown.
