So, I finally broke down and experimented with different types of avocado toast. I've been seeing avocado toast everywhere, aka the blogosphere and the foodiesphere (and all of the areas in which those are the same). I, of course, always drooled over the photos that I was seeing, but didn't know if I could do something that I felt was different enough to warrant a post. After some much needed brainstorming, I finally came up with my own twist on avocado toast. I hope you guys will enjoy this simple, yet delicious addition to your breakfast rotation!

Typical avocado toast include a smashed avocado, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes. I've decided to add in the ginger because it compliments the lemon nicely and is actually paired with lemon frequently for their super detoxing power. I added the tomato and Havarti because they are two of my favorites to put with avocado.

Before we begin the recipe, I wanted to show you how I tend to cut up my avocados. I eat A LOT of avocado. Typically I'll eat it for lunch, and I'll just mash up the avocado in the skin and top it with salt and pepper. Even if you don't want to do that, I find that this makes it a little easier to mash. Essentially - you're turning your avocado into chunks. Cut vertically and horizontally. If you're making the toast, scoop this out into the bowl. If not, you can smash it down with a fork and mash it within itself.

I love making Havarti avocado grilled cheeses, so I knew I had to choose that awesome, drool-worthy, perfectly melty, cheese. I went with sourdough for the bread because I really like it with breakfast foods. Anything you like will work. Avocado tends to pair easily with most cheeses.

Once you put in the avocado pieces, you will add in minced ginger, chopped tomatoes, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, and sea salt. Mix and mash until combined nicely. I cooked my toast while I was mashing, and by the time my toast popped up it was ready to cover with the avocado mix. Spread on toast and enjoy!

I called this "Street" avocado toast because it's my play on one of my favorite simple dishes - street tacos. You can't go wrong with a cornmeal tortilla with avocado, onion, cilantro, and lime, so I knew I  couldn't go wrong with a toast that incorporated those delicious flavors.
