Try one of our easy avocado toast recipes for a lazy brunch. You can play around with other ingredients to make this simple treat something truly special.
On breakfast and brunch menus everywhere, this once exotic green fruit has become a British staple. With its creamy flesh, the avocado is a filling way to start the day, generously spread on toast. We love it on a good, thick slice paired with a runny poached egg and something salty like bacon, or a sprinkling of crumbly feta.

Avocado on toast with chorizo & fried eggs
Make a speedy avocado toast with chorizo and a dippy egg – it's super simple and characterised by the bold, spicy flavour of the sausage. Crunchy pumpkin seeds add texture and a squeeze of lime with a few chopped coriander leaves bring freshness and zing. Minimum effort for maximum taste.
Crisp bacon & avocado toasts
Switch up your BLT with bacon, cherry tomatoes and avocado and leave it open-topped. A sprinkling of chilli flakes packs a little bit of heat – sure to perk you up for a busy day ahead – but that is balanced out by the sweetness of the tomatoes and the cooling creaminess of the avocado.
Poached eggs on avocado & feta toast
Worth getting out of bed for, the salty tang of feta beautifully complements the avocado in this easy 10 minute recipe. Another sprinkling of chilli is optional, but a runny poached egg is a must to bring all the flavours together. One for the veggies, too – it has everything you want from a breakfast, including a good dose of protein.
Boiled egg, quick pickle & avocado toast
For the more adventurous, this colourful plate of avocado with pickled radishes also features a boiled egg instead of a runny yolk. That means it better combines with the sharper-tasting veg and also offers a contrast with their crunchy texture. Pat yourself on the back because the dish also counts as two of your five-a-day.
Mexican beans & avocado on toast
For a really substantial brunch, try this vibrant mix of Mexican beans with avocado. It's healthy, easy to make and a tasty twist on beans on toast. With heaps of cherry tomatoes, black beans, onion and plenty of spices, this is also a great option for veggies and vegans.
