How to Make Avocado Toast
The simple avocado toast “recipe” is this:
- Toast bread. You can toast bread in a toaster or place bread that is buttered or brushed with olive oil in a hot skillet until golden brown.
- Prep avocado. Cut ripe avocados in half with a knife and carefully remove pit. Slice with a knife or scoop out avocado flesh with a spoon and mash with a fork.
- Add toppings. Spread avocado on toast and add additional ingredients and toppings to taste. The best homemade avocado toast includes different flavors and textures.
TIP: I like to choose one or two toppings from each category – you can keep it super simple, mix-and-match flavors, or try one of the combinations below.

These combinations are classics for a reason

Is avocado toast healthy?
Yes! Topping toast with avocado can make for a nutritious and satisfying meal. To add even more nutrition in, use a whole wheat or sprouted bread bread, and make sure to add some protein and vegetable toppings for a well-rounded meal.
What does Kylie Jenner put on her avocado toast?
Kylie makes a simple, but slightly elevated avocado toast. She spreads mashed avocado over toasted sourdough bread, drizzles it with honey, and sprinkles it with red pepper flakes and salt for a hot-honey and fancy avocado toast recipe.
What is the best bread for avocado toast?
Go with your favorite! A high quality artisan or sourdough bread will always be my favorite for toast, but I don’t always have it on hand. I do usually have a whole grain bread (sprouted, typically!) and so it really depends on what you have and what you prefer.
Should you use sliced or mashed avocado?
While I prefer the looks of thin avocado slices, it’s not the best for eating so when I’m making avocado toast for myself, I’ll always go with smashed avocado toast.
If you’re adding additional toppings to your avocado toast, they can slide off the sliced avocado, so I typically go with mashed, but it’s really personal preference.
How many calories are in avocado toast?
The calories in avocado toast will vary based on the bread, how much avocado you use, and the toppings. A basic avocado toast with bread, avocado, and sea salt has around 200 calories, but again, can vary greatly based on what you make it with.
How to Set Up an Avocado Toast Bar
This is such a fun food idea for parties, I LOVE DIY situations, especially when entertaining.
An avocado toast bar is perfect for weekend brunches, wedding and baby showers, girls weekends, or anytime you have guests.
Put out a variety of breads, avocado (either sliced or mashed with a bit of lemon juice) and then all of your toppings. If you’re toasting bread for a crowd, toast it in the oven or in a large skillet.
You can also have your guests bring their favorite topping, or “assign” people to bring avocado toast bar toppings from different categories.
Serve it all with the breakfast charcuterie board for a great spread.
What to Serve with Avocado Toast
It depends on when you’re having it. I’m sharing some ideas for both breakfast and lunches:
- Breakfast – Serve with mini blueberry muffins, air fryer hash browns, breakfast sausages or bacon, a variety of fresh fruit, and cold foam cold coffee.
- Lunch – Serve with a Greek cucumber salad, strawberry spinach goat cheese salad, kale apple slaw, simple green salad, or black bean quinoa salad.
