Are you looking for something new and different for breakfast? I have a good suggestion with this delicious, somewhat healthy, recipe.
This terrific idea came to me through an email from Food.com. I immediately knew I wanted to make this because of three favorite ingredients that I never tire of eating; avocado, bacon and Michigan maple syrup. The bread is secondary as it is just a vessel to hold all of these goodies.
Avocado, Bacon and Maple Syrup on Toast, Adapted
- baguette of your choice – I used a crusty multigrain or try Overnight Crusty Baguette for homemade
- 3 ripe avocados
- 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
- other seasonings as desired
- bacon crisply fried, drained and broken in half (it’s best not to use a thick bacon such as applewood)
- real maple syrup to drizzle
Cut the baguette into 1/2 to 1-inch thick slices and toast. I like to use my Breville toaster oven as I don’t have to preheat and it’s a lot quicker to toast the bread than in my oven.
Fry the bacon until it is crisp and drain it on paper towels; tear in half. You could also crumble up the bacon but the presentation will not be as pretty.
Mash up the avocados, add the lemon juice and season to taste. I did not add any seasonings as the combination of fresh avocados, bacon and syrup was so flavorful nothing else was needed.
Divide the avocado mixture evenly among the bread slices and top with the bacon. Drizzle a little maple syrup on top and serve.
