I was born and raised in tropical Honduras in the heart of Central America. In other words, I grew up in the prime environment for avocados to grow. Thus, avocados were always present in my kitchen. To this day, I can't live without them. I think we can all agree that avocados—especially avocado toasts—have taken over social media, our eating habits, and, to be honest, our hearts. Although it might seem silly to write out a recipe for something as self-explanatory as toast, you'd be surprised to find out how many different avocado toast recipes you can make with an avocado and a piece of toast. 

Nothing beats the classic toast and mashed avocado spread, but when you're ready to graduate from this one, you'll find yourself hoping you had discovered the many other options sooner. You'll become a master of these fancy avocado toast recipes in no time. 

1. Avocado Ricotta Toast

To take your classic avo-toast up a notch, add ricotta cheese for extra creaminess. Sprinkle a few red pepper flakes for a slight kick, as well as salt and pepper. Then serve and enjoy. 

2. Tomato-White Bean & Avocado Toast

If you're looking for a way to up your protein intake, this vegan white bean and tomato avocado toast alternative will hit the spot. Top your toast with roasted garlic and a balsamic glaze, and garnish with a few fresh basil leaves.  

3. Avocado Feta Toast

Adding feta cheese to avocado toast is as easy as it sounds. This addition is perfect on rye bread and sprinkled with fresh basil leaves. 

4. Mushroom Avocado Toast

Mushrooms have an earthy taste that complements the creaminess of the avocado and the crunchiness of toast. I'd recommend using sourdough bread, spreading it with mashed avocado, adding sautéed mushrooms, aged Parmesan cheese, and garnish with fresh arugula. 

5. Toasted Chickpea Avocado Toast

Once you pick your choice of bread, all you need is an avocado and a couple crunchy add-ons. For this recipe, avocado is spread as a base, topped with toasted chickpeas, sunflower seeds, and radishes. When paired with kale chips, it's the ideal lunch. Brace yourself for the best avocado toast you'll ever try. 

6. Avocado Potato Toast

Using a waxy potato instead of bread is the perfect substitute if you're looking for a gluten-free version of your favorite brunch special. Be careful not to slice the potatoes too thin, as they can break off easier than bread. 

7. Smoked Salmon Tartine with Red Onion and Avocado

Adding smoked salmon to your avocado toast in the morning is the perfect way to get your omega-3 fatty acids. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends consuming two 4-ounce servings per week of seafood to reduce the risk of heart disease. Adding smoked salmon to your brunch menu is the way to go. 

8. Avocado English Muffin with Roasted Garlic and Prosciutto

Making English muffins from scratch isn't really that hard at all. And, of course, they are a classic brunch staple for eggs Benedict. Whip a batch of English muffins, top with some avocado, roasted garlic, and prosciutto and elevate your brunch game to the next level. 

9. Hummus and Avocado Toast

This is basically the recipe for success. The protein from the hummus, healthy fats from the avocado, whole-wheat bread as your carb source, and, last but not least, the veggie element from the tomato all make up this super nutrient-packed meal. This is perfect for any meal or any time of the day. 

10. Spicy Lump Crab with Sriracha and Lime Avocado Toast 

Spicy lump crab and avocado? I'm in. Whip up a batch of this spicy lump crab and avocado salad, and top your favorite whole wheat sourdough bread with the salad and some greens. Drizzle some lime to top it all off, and enjoy. 

11. Avocado and Pomegranate Seed Toast

If you're like me, then you literally always have a hard time deciding between eating a sweet or a savory breakfast. With this recipe for avocado toast with pomegranate seeds, you will never have to pick ever again. The tanginess from the pomegranate seeds really helps to bring out the flavors from the avocado and the bread. 

Pomegranate seeds not only add color but also taste to avocado toast recipes. Add a few hemp seeds here and there for extra nutritional value. 

12. Avocado and Poached Egg Toast

An avocado toast with a perfectly poached egg is a super easy, dorm-friendly recipe. You can make a poached egg in the microwave, and top a slice of toast with cream cheese, avocado, and Trader Joe's Everything But The Bagel seasoning

13. Avocado, Cottage Cheese, and Tomato Toast

Although the idea of adding cottage cheese to your avocado toast might sound a little odd, don't push away the idea until you try it. Avocado, cottage cheese, tomato slices, and a poached egg are my go-to. I also like to top my toast with chia seeds, lots of pepper, and a tiny bit of red pepper flakes. 

14. Sweet Potato, Jalapeño, and Avocado Toast

Sweet potato toasts have been everywhere on social media lately. Literally, all you need to do is cut up a sweet potato, drop it in the toaster, top with your favorite toppings, and enjoy. In this recipe, be prepared to get a kick from the jalapeños. 

15. Avocado, Salmon, and Poached Egg Toast

Avocado toast and salmon are like a match made in heaven. Throw on a poached egg, and if you're feeling fancy drizzle on your very own hollandaise sauce, and you'll be killing the brunch game. This should for sure be at the top of your avocado toast recipes. 

16. Avocado Toast with Tossed Greens in Lemon Vinaigrette 

For a super easy and healthy twist, add a tossed salad in a lemon vinaigrette or a balsamic dressing as a topping. The #eatyourgreens has never been more real, am I right? 

17. Roasted Asparagus, Arugula, Feta, and Sunflower Seed Avocado Toast

How about adding asparagus to your avocado toast? I know, it's fancy AF, but that's not a bad thing. Try adding feta for an extra creamy flavor, and sunflower seeds for an extra crunch. 

18. Avocado Toast Bruschetta

Bruschetta is a type of classic Italian antipasti or appetizer. Adding avocado and an egg would switch up the game a little bit. Who said you can't have a bruschetta for breakfast? 

19. Avocado, Goat Cheese, and Sesame Seeds

Two of my favorite things include goat cheese and avocado. Combine the two on a slice of toast, and I think I would be biting into heaven. The creaminess of both the goat cheese and avocado add to the level of satisfaction on this toast. 

20. Avocado Toast Eggs Benedict

Imagine an eggs Benedict spin-off meets avocado toast. Once you get to this point and try this out, there's no going back. Two of the classiest brunch items out there combined in one will have you coming back for more. 

I don't think that there's anything better than learning how to make a variety of avocado toast recipes. I mean, it's an important life skill, right?
