The past year or so Avocado Toast has been quite popular. I can see the appeal. A runny egg with the creaminess of avocado and the comfort of a slice of delicious bread.
One morning, I was standing at the fridge wondering what to have for breakfast. There sat half an avocado and a leftover container of refried beans. Seeing the beans, I was reminded of molletes. It is a type of open-faced sandwich eaten in Mexico. It consists of a piece of bread spread with refried beans, cheese, salsa, and sometimes other toppings. It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or as a snack. That’s where the inspiration for my Mexican-Style Avocado Toast came from.
For bread options, use whatever you have on hand, or if you are planning ahead, ciabatta, french baguette, or the traditional Mexican option of a bolillo would be wonderful. As for the cheese, provolone, Havarti, mozzarella, or pepper jack would all taste great!
