Avocado toast: 6 Easy Ways to Amp Up Your Avocado Toast

Avocado toast has been super trendy. It's been on breakfast menus and served at coffee shops but there's a hefty price to it. Fortunately, it's so easy to make at home. Avocado toast isn't anything "fancy" or revolutionary, in fact it's just sliced or mashed avocado on top of a piece of toast - so simple, yet so delicious. You can eat avocado toast for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even a healthy daytime snack. I've come up with a few different variations to keep our avocado toast interesting.
