Breakfast always seem to be the challenge around my house. I am always looking for ways to make a great breakfast quickly while also finding interesting ways to make my recipes do more.
Like so many other others, I have discovered that my family enjoys avocado toast, and with so many preparations I know you will too. Since I work primarily in banquets, I have developed a recipe that is great for 1 or 1,000 and can be served as breakfast, lunch, as a snack or as an appetizer at dinner. Now while having just told you how it could be served, I have also realized that it makes a great replacement for the traditional dinner salad.
Please note a sharp knife is required for slicing the avocados, tomatoes and on occasion the English muffins. Avocado toast is a versatile dish that allows you and your family to get together and decorate them as they see fit and then enjoy the fruits of their labor.
A few notes on the preparation of this dish. First, I like an English muffin over traditional breads because I appreciate the way the mashed avocado adheres to the muffin, it is more of a preference than a requirement. If you like your bread to bring a unique flavor to your food, then I encourage you to be creative and try sourdough, rye, ciabatta or even something as adventurous as an olive loaf.
What kind of tomatoes should I use for bruschetta?
The other big thing to consider is the type of tomatoes that you select. I like to pick tomatoes that offer a lot of flavor and a variety of colors usually baby heirloom, but the sky is the limit. I encourage you to take a walk through the produce section and touch, smell, and taste (after purchasing) a variety of tomatoes.
Finally, a note on Litehouse spices and the balsamic. I love using the Litehouse spices on dishes like these, because the flavors are consistent and are easier to store than fresh. If you have a big family or are making a lot of these flavor consistency is always important. The balsamic can also be replaced with a variety of different Litehouse flavors, I would recommend trying any of the Litehouse vinaigrettes and match it to your toppings, if you want to skip the balsamic reduction.
