I had the nerve to call this a recipe, but it’s more of a ‘stuff I like to bung on a plate and eat’ type thing.
I really love avocados. There’s something about them that just makes me feel a bit excited. I mean, they are the staple to guac, and that’s probably reason enough.
I love them for nutritional reason too, and also because they feel a bit special. Sure, my favourite sandwich might be a simple ham one (good quality ham and fresh crusty bread will always win in my book). But if you fancy a s bit of a treat, avocado does it for me.
And this is how I like it best.
Seeded bread – two slices, toasted how you like.
One avocado – mashed up, with a little chunk to it.
Streaky bacon – go for four slices, you deserve it.
Firstly, cook your bacon, however you like, grilled, frying pan, whatever takes your fancy. When it’s almost done, take your bread and pop it in to toast.
I choose seeded bread as I like the crunch and the extra taste that the seeds give, especially against the creamy texture of avocado.
Next, grab a bowl, half your avocado, remove the stone (carefully now), and scoop out the flesh. Add a squeeze of lemon juice (bottled is fine – it’s convenient isn’t it) and some sea salt (I use Maldon) and black pepper. Mush with a fork until it’s smooth, with some nice chunks for bite.
Oh look! Your toast has conveniently popped up. Spread on your avocado, slice a few cherry tomatoes and pop on top, followed by some crispy bacon.
Orange juice (I’m Team With Bits) and a coffee makes this a heavenly Sunday breakfast. And it would rock as a lunch too.
You could also add a fried egg, for extra yum.
Or even add some chilli and garlic to your avocado, and crumble on a little bit of feta.
