Smashed Avocado On Toast Three Ways

Simple and delicious, smashed avocado on toast is like rich buttered toast. It can be your breakfast, lunch, dinner, light snack, dinner party appetiser or just an excuse to eat more avocado. It’s also a blank canvas in terms of toppings, you can add anything that tickles your fancy. We’ve chosen crumbled feta, pickled onion and garlic prawns, but this is only the tip of the avocado iceberg and we would love to hear your own creative topping suggestions. But for now, try making these examples at home and feast on avocado toast to your heart’s content.
