Avocado Toast

Avocado on Rye Toast

I was born in the late 70s, a time when the Internet as we know it was still a distant dream for a bunch of tech guys trying to connect the entire world. So no, I’m not a Millennial. And while I do know a few that I absolutely adore, I have to admit that I’ve also been a bit snarky towards them on occasion. But when they start taking an interest in food, I start taking a bigger interest in them. And I’m very thankful for their Avocado Toast.

Yes, I realize people were likely smearing avocados on toast long before there was Instagram to post their pics to, but I think we can all agree that it was the Millennials that really made it a trend, filling our feeds with countless pics of gorgeous Avocado Toast. And now, I get to be those one of those people! And not only is Avocado Toast very pretty to look at, it’s also delicious and takes only a few minutes to pull together. So thanks, Millennials, for the delicious snack!
