Avocado ToastI’m always looking for healthy breakfast alternatives. Most American breakfast foods are laden with fat, sugar and refined carbs, and oatmeal with fruit gets a little old after a while.

Avocado toast is a quick, healthy breakfast that uses fresh ingredients. There are a lot of variations and it’s easy to come up with your own. This is one that turned out particularly well and is easy to make. Enjoy!

This award winning recipe (My oldest son, Jared, won first prize in an appetizer contest with it)  comes from my Aunt Ellie, my mother’s younger sister. Aunt Ellie loved to entertain and we always looked forward to these cheddar slices around holiday time. Where she got this recipe, I’ll never know, but since it involves bacon and bread, it may have it’s roots in a traditional Hungarian recipe. This has been a traditional Christmas Eve treat for our family and we usually make enough to last all the way through the holiday season and into the winter, as it freezes very well.
