Hi, did I miss the link with the actual recipe? I see that you mention it can be customized with any toppings that you like, but I never saw an actual recipe with the procedure for mixing the avocado (with what?) to make the base for the toast. What bread do you use? What temp and for how long do you bake the toast?
Thanks so much.
Oh my goodness – that’s so strange! It disappeared. Thanks for letting me know! I’ll go try and see what the heck happened!
OK that was so strange! I’m sorry about that…the recipe is updated now! Thanks so much for letting me know. I’ve never had that happen where the recipe has just disappeared before!
Kristen, thank you so much for the quick reply. We’ve made a version of avocado toast for many years, but yours was so colorful and pretty, I wanted to make sure I made a copy of it. Thought it would be great to have when company is around (or not!) Thanks again. I can’t wait to look through your other recipes. I just “found” your blog today and subscribed, so I’ll be checking it out regularly.
I so appreciate you bringing it to my attention that the recipe was gone! That was crazy. It’s so nice to meet you and thanks so much for your kind comment! Enjoy!

Such a great idea for a party. I want to use a French loaf and slice it up, toast it and use your Avocado recipe. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

I love the colors on that toast. So bright and appetizing. And the taste of avocado and roasted pepper together is just lovely.
It’s almost too pretty to eat!

What a great way to bump it up a notch! I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks that avocado toast isn’t just meant for breakfast. This would be much more filling and make a great lunch! Thanks for sharing.
