California Fresh Avocado Toast


I love being in California where so many food trends get their start before making a splash on the rest of the world!  Just to name a few, there are the gourmet food trucks, juicing, and (my current favorite) avocado toast.  :)  Today for you, I decided to put together one of my fave easy, fresh, and tasty dishes.  It is totally a copycat from a popular local deli here, so now all of you out there can enjoy it!

This California Fresh Avocado Toast is super simple and delicious for either breakfast or snack, and I think it is pretty gorgeous if you ask me!  It's so simple, it takes about 15 seconds with TV magic...  See the video here or below!  :)

Speaking of California, I used one of theSan Luis Sourdough® Bread varieties because they have been a California favorite since 1983.  Totally delish!  In particular, I used the Sourdough Cracked Wheat Sliced Bread to build my creation on, because it is hearty and the texture is absolutely perfect to withstand all the avocado-y goodness.

Are you ready to get the recipe?  Let's go!

And that's it!  Like I said, it is really simple and the results are beautiful!  I even whipped up a second toast more hearty toast with roasted tomatoes and pesto at the same time (get that recipe here), and the whole thing took me less than 10 minutes.

In fact, take a look at how quick everything comes together with this mini video I put together.  :)  Easy peasy, right?




Just remember to pick up the Sourdough Cracked Wheat Sliced Bread for that authentic sourdough flavor, and crisp, bubbly crust.  I love the Sheepherder's Bread as well, which is much softer and absolutely delicious for so many other recipes!  Recently, a number of San Luis Sourdough Bread varieties were officially Non-GMO Project Verified*, so you know that you are getting the best quality product out there.  :)
