If the walls of the Food52 office could talk, they would probably tell you about how much we love avocado toast. So simple and filling, we could write countless odes to this wonderful treat (but we will spare you those today). Avocado toast has become quite the popular item recently, and we couldn’t be happier. With Avocado Toast Week wrapping up today (though our love will last forever), we thought we'd poll the Food52 staffers and ask:
How do you make (or where have you eaten) the perfect avocado toast? What do you do to dress it up?
Do you prefer just a sprinkle of salt or an egg on top? Tell us in the comments!
Stephanie: I like to have only avocado and a fried egg on mine. And sometimes a fried halloumi slice, cut into strips, because it's salty like feta but has yummy, crispy edges.
Posie: I like simple and uncomplicated avocado toast. But, it is very good if you top it with gomasio seasoning (which is a mix of black sesame, ocean salt, and seaweed).
Gabriella P: I go for the Whole Foods "Seeduction" bread (sue me, I love a bad pun), heavily toasted, then I add mashed avocado, Sriracha, and salt on top.
More: Try adding infused salt to your avocado toast for even more flavor.
Lauren K.: My first avocado toast ever was at a little cafe in East London circa 2007, and while other all avocado toasts since have been delicious, this one is the most memorable. They served it on freshly baked baguette with chili, flaky salt, and lime.
Erin: My favorite style is mashed avocado, topped with flaky salt and a huge dollop of hot pepper jelly. Also, the bread should be a little burnt.
Haley: My homemade favorite is mashed avocado on a brown rice cake with Maldon sea salt and a dash of balsamic vinegar.
More: Add even more green to your basic avocado toast.
