Avocado Chipotle Toast

Annie, Annie's Eats

Open faced sandwiches are a favorite lunch and dinner option in our household. They are quick and easy to make, and easily adaptable based on what you have available in your fridge and pantry. Our versions almost always start with a generous layer of coarsely mashed avocado and then we top with whatever veggies we like.

Hard boiled egg is a great topping option. This particular version is taken to the next level by the addition of a chipotle compound butter that is spread on the bread before toasting. It adds a nice smoky flavor without being overpowering. The chipotle butter was so great, we’re already dreaming up lots of other ways we can use it.

Directions:

To make compound butter, combine butter, garlic, chipotle powder and paprika in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix well until evenly combined.

Spread thin layer of butter on both sides of bread slices. Warm skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat. Once hot, add buttered bread to pan and cook, turning once, until crisp and browned on both sides. (Alternatively, cook on grill or grill pan.) Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.

Meanwhile, scoop flesh of avocados into medium bowl. Add in lime juice and salt and mash together coarsely with fork. Spread generous layer of avocado mash on each slice of toast. Top with some of hard-boiled egg, red onion, tomatoes and minced cilantro. Serve immediately.
