Updated:Sep 20, 2022
Avocado Open Sandwich is prepared with creamy ripe avocados on crispy toasted bread. The ingredients for enhancing flavours include eggs, chili oil, and red pepper flakes!
Avocado open sandwich consists of a slice or two of bread, which is toasted with one or more food items. There are several variations to the traditional avocado toast, including avocado on sweet potato toast, avocado and vegemite toast, French toast with avocado and Parmesan cheese, Toast fingers with soft-boiled eggs, avocado and baked beans on toast, and avocado and feta smash on toasted rye. Another common variation is Avocado Open Sandwich with smashed avocados, soft-boiled eggs, chili oil, and other toppings, often including hot sauce.
The origins of avocado toast can take you all over the globe and back hundreds of years. Bill Granger from Sydney Australia claims that he was the first to invent and serve it at his cafe Bills, in 1993. Bill's was modeled after restaurants in the more eclectic Melbourne food scene.
