Avocado toast is a longtime favorite snack of mine. I eat it daily. I wanted to punch it up with some salt and depth of flavor, thus I turned to a couple of my favorite foods in the savory department: pesto and prosciutto.
I made an ad hoc pesto by blending several handfuls of fresh basil, two cloves of garlic, olive oil, a small handful of pine nuts, Parmesan, and salt and pepper to taste. I spread the pesto on toasted rye bread and added sliced prosciutto, avocado, baby arugula and a perfectly poached egg.
What are your favorite toppings for avocado toast?
