The grown up version of a childhood classic… Toast Two Way, featuring avocado toast!
Let’s face it, I’m not one of those bloggers who will grace you with a homemade leavened bread come Monday morning. As much as I wish I was, I’m just not. Just like my vocabulary (affectionately referred to as Lizism by my family), I like to keep things simple.
Toast is one of those classic dishes that has become super trendy again. I love it when this happens because for average cooks like me, it helps us shine.
Avocado toast, simply brilliant!
The toasting trend has not only sparked the interest of us home cooks, but also restaurateurs across the globe. It’s amazing what people will pay for a slice of toast, nut butter and a cup of joe! Let’s just say at a cute little corner coffee shop, you can easily drop $10 on this combo!
To save your hard earned money, I’m highlighting just how simple it is to whip a gourmet toast up on the fly at home. I’ve got you covered with toast two ways: a classic Pico De Gallo Avocado Toast and a Cinnamon PB Banana Toast. These toast combinations make the perfect meal, snack or sweet treat! Not only do they have the perfect blend of healthy fats, but also are fiber filled and nutrient dense! Talk about getting a BANG for your BUCK!
