Open-Faced Avocado Sandwich

It's a rare occasion to find perfectly ripe avocados at my local grocery store, but I hit the jackpot yesterday.  As I pondered the destiny of my delightful green fruit, I stumbled upon recipe for an avocado sandwich that I just *had* to try. 

This sandwich was perfect for an avocado fiend like me- simple and delicious.  Next time, I'm going to save the calories and omit the olive oil.  (It didn't add anything extra to the flavor or texture.)

And, just a disclaimer, this meal is not husband-approved.  He'd probably look at me like I had three heads if I plopped a plate of avocado-on-toast in front of him.  (He doesn't know what he's missing out on, does he?)

Adapted from The Hungry Mouse
Serves 2

2 slices of bread, toasted
1 avocado, pitted and peeled
Juice of half a lime
1 tsp olive oil (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

1.  Place the avocado in a medium bowl.  Add lime juice.  Mash the avocado with a fork, stirring to incorporate lime juice.  Spread half the avocado mixture on each slice of bread.  Drizzle with olive oil if desired, and season to taste.
Pin It!


  1. Yum. This is one of my favorite snacks. It's the perfect topping for a bagel too!

  2. I bet it would be good on bagels! I've got your sizzling hot shrimp on the meal plan this week, by the way, and I'm very excited to try it.

  3. I never thought of eating avocado like this! I am trying this sometime this week!

  4. I love having plain sliced avacado on potato bread... no seasoning needed YUM!
