A Delicious Twist on Avocado Toast

 Avocado French Toast 

This week we are bringing you a really fun variation on the ubiquitous avocado toast. This breakfast has become a staple on brunch menus and breakfast tables worldwide, loved for its creamy texture, satisfying taste, and versatility. But where did this beloved dish originate, and how did it rise to such popularity?

Believe it or not, avocado toast has been enjoyed in various forms for quite some time. However, its widespread recognition can be attributed to Bill Granger, an Australian chef, and restaurateur, who introduced it to the public in 1993. Granger added avocado toast to the menu of his Sydney restaurant, where it quickly gained a cult following among locals and tourists alike. His simple yet delicious take on the dish captured the hearts and palates of diners.

Fast forward to the 2010s, and avocado toast experienced a renaissance of sorts. Social media platforms like Instagram and Pinterest played a significant role in popularizing the dish, with users sharing countless photos of beautifully adorned avocado toasts featuring a myriad of toppings and garnishes. Suddenly, avocado toast wasn't just a tasty breakfast option; it became a symbol of health, wellness, and culinary creativity.

Speaking of health, the benefits of eating avocados really are numerous. They are high in nutrients like fiber and various vitamins. They help promote the growth of healthy bacteria in your gut, assisting with digestion and inflammation. They are also packed with healthy fats and antioxidants, and they reduce the risk of heart disease. Seriously, they are a super fruit.
