What’s better than eating Avocado Toast at your favorite brunch spot? Enjoying it with your friends in the comfort of your own home! Plus, it’s super fun and interactive and will make a great centerpiece to any brunch party.
What to Put on Your Avocado Toast
Guests can customize their toasts with toppings to their taste preferences. I like to start by thinking of some popular avocado toast combos and then buy ingredients based on that. In the below photo, we’ve got:
- A savory & sweet option with yummy figs (and chili flakes if you dare).
- A bagel & lox-inspired option with high protein lox, capers, dill and thinly sliced cumber ribbons.
- An elegant veggie option with watermelon radishes and cumber ribbons.
- A classic breakfast combo option with jammy eggs, bacon & chives.
If this amount of toppings is overwhelming, you can limit the options by focusing on two or three types of produce. I would start with one veggie and one fruit, plus a protein combo of choice (i.e. eggs and fixins, or lox and fixins). Just be sure to remember seasonings and garnishes, like black pepper, chili flakes, and Everything But The Bagel seasoning, on hand to take your toasts to the next level.
Best Way to Serve the Avocado Mash
Halve, pit, and scoop the avocado out into a bowl. Mash with a fork until chunky, then season with salt and pepper. Immediately add a squeeze of lemon to prevent it from browning.

Let’s Talk Watermelon Radishes
A very pretty and flavorful addition to any toast! Watermelon radishes are a bit more mild than regular white radishes. I get lots of questions about where to find watermelon radishes. Most grocery stores will have them, but keep in mind that peak season is spring and late fall. On the outside they look very unassuming and are easy to miss (they tend to be mostly white on the outside). For the best results, use a mandolin to cut very thin slices.
Pro tip: Cut extra for use in salads or on other boards! Store the slices in water in your fridge to prevent them from drying out and curling up.
Let’s Get to the Toast
As for the actual pieces of bread, you can lay them out on the board like I did here. But if you’re not serving right away, feel free to just devote the board to the toppings and place fresh bread in a covered basket on the side.
For a smaller gathering, friends can even toast as they go. Again, it’s a great interactive entertaining idea!
