This greek-style avocado toast is quick and healthy enough for a filling weekday breakfast, but also fancy enough for any weekend brunch.—You’ll never go back to regular old toast again!
I have a confession, friends. A REALLY-BIG, super-juicy, ultra-embarrassing confession. Are you ready?
Today marks only the SECOND time I’ve had avocado toast in my life. Also uhhhhh, the first time was only just a week ago.
You’re probably wondering about now….what is even WRONG with Sarah?! Is she living in a box? Have this chick ever even HEARD of Pinterest?
Like I said, guys. I am huuuuuugely embarrassed. This is all just so…..wrong…. NOW I know why my life felt so incomplete! It was lacking avocado toast.
Do you know how I plan to make up for this avocado injustice? I plan to eat avocado toast for breakfast every day for the rest of my living days.
Send loaves of bread by the thousands and truckloads of ripe avocados on over my way, please and thank ‘ya. Your donations are GREATLY appreciated. 😉
SO. Any big plans for the weekend? This is kind of going to be a bittersweet and more-than-likely emotional weekend for me: Some of you may know I’m a dancer when I’m not baking, right? I have my last-ever dance performances happening tomorrow and Sunday.
Like….last EVER! I’ve been performing with this studio since I was 5 years old and this weekend is the last time I’ll ever step on stage with the girls and teachers I grew up dancing with.
Also….ummm I’m performing in five (yes, FIVE) dance numbers, two of which are solos (eeeek!!) so my stress-level combined with last-performance emotions are definitely kicking my butt right now.
Just….PUH-LEEZE send positive thoughts my way that I don’t cry on stage during the finale or something mortifying like that.
Also….keep my poor mother in mind too. She already warned me that she’s going to be in the audience bawling her eyes out during my solos. I worry for her Kleenex supply….
ANYWAYZ. Back to our avocado toast business.
Guys, how many of us are in mad rush-mode in the morning? I feel lucky enough to say that MY mornings are pretty low-key and stress-free (yeah, just wait til this fall) so I’m not scrambling to shove breakfast in my face and then run out the door, but still….I don’t particularly like slaving over gourmet breakfasts especially on weekdays either.
Enter super-speedy, ready-in-five, keeps-ya-full-for-hours HEALTHY avocado toast. My friends, this is the answer to your on-the-go breakfast PRAYERS.
Sorry, Starbucks. I won’t be needing your drive-thru anymore. Except for in the afternoons when it’s time for my s’mores frappuccino-run.
Side note: Have you tried those frappes yet?? They are to DIE for. They blow my mind in the best way. They also take my money in a not-so-nice way.
Seriously all that’s involved in this toast is the following: Mash up some ripe avocado with a few seasonings and a little lime juice. Toast up your bread. Slather the mashed avocado over that. Sprinkle some chopped fresh cherry tomatoes (loooooooove these!) and a lot of feta love on top. Greek-style baby!!
The last step is as follows →
You faceplant into the stack and probably get the green stuff all over your jammies, but that’s a-ok because you’re too much in avocado toast-bliss to care.
Sidenote: Your friends will totally be jealous when you walk into the office sporting that avocado toast. Be sure to tell them that this is what the COOL kids have for breakfast now’a’days.
This toast is seriously so simple, but trust me on this, guys: It holds a powerhouse of flavors and SCORE! It’s absolutely good for you and will totally keep your energy level UP for hours.
But only as long as you have an extra-large cup of coffee on the side. I wouldn’t know any other way. aheeeeem.
I’m planning on powering up for my performances this weekend by eating THIS and only this avocado toast for breakfast. And possibly for an intermission snack too. Maybe even for dinner if I’m in a lazy-ish mood.
Which I undoubtedly will be. Fast-paced weekends give me EVERY excuse in the book to eat avocado toast the lazy way.
Brainstorm: Let’s be lazy TOGETHER this weekend and make avocado toast!

Heather - Butter & Burlap says
Second time having avocado? No judgement here! Now that I’ve been blogging, there are soooo many foods I haven’t tried yet, but these recipes make everything seem so accessible! So, no worries, everyone has been there:). And yes, avo toast will be in your life for ever and ever now, but it’s so delicious you’ll never grow tired of it. I can’t believe your last performance is this weekend! AH!! What are you going to do now that that chapter is over? My sister danced for 17 years and I loved watching her perform. Her last solo was so memorable and such a special moment for her, I know you will have the same feeling! Good luck this weekend, you will do great!
Ahhhh! Thank you so much Heather! It was definitely an emotional but unforgettable weekend!
This toast looks so delicious, perfect for breakfast! Love avocados! Pinned!

Cyndi - My Kitchen Craze says
Oooh Sarah I wish I could watch you at your dance recital!! I danced for 8 years when I was younger and I wish I would of kept it up. What type of dance do you do? PS can I share a secret with you too? I only have avocado toast this year too! Oops. 😉 At least we jumped on that ban wagon, right? This looks awesome. So having this next week!! 😉
No waaaay! That’s awesome that you used to dance too, Cyndi! I do a variety of dance, but my favorite styles are classical ballet and modern ballet. 🙂
Betty Sievert says
This is a great lazy breakfast idea! Yummm. Good luck on your performances this weekend and I know you will do well, as always. I wish I were there to watch.
Love and Prayers
Thank you so much, Mrs. Sievert! I wish you could have been here to watch too! I hope things are going well for you. 🙂
Amber @ Dessert Now, Dinner Later! says
I love avocados! I haven’t tried avocado toast though! On my list to try now!
Oh, you SO need to give avocado toast a go, Amber! You will be obsessed. 🙂
Kelley @ Chef Savvy says
This recipe is so simple yet so amazing! I love avocado on toast. This will make it 10 x better! Yum!
Thanks Kelley! Sometimes simple really is best. 😀
Raquel @ My California Roots says
What a brilliant idea! This is totally on the list for this week, except with a few kalamata olives thrown on top. Pinned!
I love the sound of olives on top of this toast! So trying that next time. 🙂
Chicory App says
We just had avocado toast with salmon in our office a few days ago. Absolutely delicious! Will try your approach next time since it looks so yummy!
We love your blog! Are you interested in becoming a Chicory recipe partner?
This is delicious, I make that quite often. For a nice variation I recommend you try fava bean puree instead of the avocado. Just blanch the fava beans, blitz with a little olive oil and a clove of garlic and seasoning. I also top with cherry tomatoes and blue cheese.
I’m glad to hear that this avocado toast has become a favorite, Ana! I’ve so gotta try that fava bean puree on this toast next time!!
what kind of cheese is that???
Feta cheese, Kourtney 🙂
Jackie @ Love Deep Fried Turkey says
Avocado and tomato…one of my favourite combinations. Thanks for the delicious recipe and I now know what I’ll be trying out tomorrow.
So what are your seasonings? It’s not a complete recipe.
I’ve made Avocado toast but was curious what you added to it
I’m so sorry about that, Susan. For some reason the recipe wasn’t showing up but it should be now. 🙂
