I’m guessing that you clicked on this because you, my friend, like avocados.

Maybe even love avocados.

This is why I’m here to teach you how to make the best avocado toast. Are you ready to have your taste buds blown away? Let’s go.

Ingredients for 1 piece of avocado toast:

  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1/2–3/4 of an avocado
  • 1/4 small fresh lemon/ 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • 1–4 tbsps red pepper flakes, depending on how spicy you want it
  • a sprinkle or 2 of salt, test the mash to see if you need more salt
  • for onions just how much you want, finely chop them. I usually go 1/2 of a small onion or 1/4th of a medium-large onion.
  • 1 tbsp of oregano
  • 1/2–1 tbsp of any other spice
  • egg(optional)


Step 1: Bread

Of course, you need bread for avocado toast. Just put your bread in the toaster while you do the other steps. If you don’t have a toaster, you can always use a mini oven, air fryer, or the good old stove. Just toast it on a pan, and you’ll be ready to go.

If you don’t want to toast your bread uh… it’s going to get soggy. But you do you?

(I personally use whole wheat bread, because it’s healthier and crunchier.)

Step 2: Cutting and Scooping

You can use how much avocado you prefer, usually, for one bread I use 1/2 an avocado, and for a 2 bread sandwich, I use 3/4 of the avocado.

Once you’ve figured out how much you’re using, cut the avocado and scoop it up into a bowl.

The next step is where we go deep into the secrets of making the best avocado toast.

Step 3: Mash time

Get some fresh lemons or lemon juice. Red pepper flakes. Salt. Oregano if you would like. Onions are optional too!

And get some other spices to add if you would like. But first, mash the avocado only so…
