Things On Toast – Recipe Ideas

I have always found toast a really comforting joyful addition to any meal or a meal in itself, but things on toast is even better, bake beans on toast, cheese on toast, egg on toast all a lovely nostalgic memory of a Sunday night supper, a welcome comfort before the thought of school starting again the next day. As one of true tradition things on toast on a Sunday stills stand, but I have also experimented a bit with some more adventurous options that work equally as well as a simple meal on toast.

1 ripe avocado (soft but not brown inside)

A nice sturdy loaf – sour dough bread is always nice to use – 2 slices each

2 teaspoons chopped mint, plus a bit extra for presentation

60g feta cheese

Olive oil

Salt flakes and freshly ground pepper

Method:

Toast your bread. While it’s in the toaster, halve, pit  and peel your avocado and scoop out the flesh with a spoon then pop it in a bowl.

Mash the avocado with a fork and mix in the lemon juice and mint. Crumble your cheese and fold it into the avocado mixture, leaving some bits chunky.

Spread the avocado mixture onto your toast and top with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Sprinkle some extra mint to make it pretty and serve with lime wedges on the side.
