Avocado toast has become a favorite breakfast food in many parts of the world. Why? It’s easy to make, it’s tasty, and it’s totally versatile. You can customize it any way you want: use a toasted bagel instead of regular bread, add tomatoes or chopped fruit, drizzle with olive oil, or garnish it with herbs. And, of course, you can always top it with an egg!
