Jazz Up Avocado Toast With This Sweet And Savory Condiment

Avocado toast has earned quite a reputation over the past few years as being the go-to breakfast of Millennials. But according to Huff Post, it may not be deserved. The news outlet shares that while the narrative has focused on this demographic and how they like to spend their hard earned dollars on this trendy food at overpriced restaurants, it is just not true. As it turns out, we all like avocado toast. But it can be pricey. According to Travel Channel, it can run you an average of $7 if you live in Phoenix, Arizona, or as much as $11 if you are in the Windy City.

The good news is you can make this meal at home. Whether you enjoy a little homemade sourdough avocado toast or you choose to mix it up and add a creamy ingredient like cream cheese to your recipe, making avocado toast at home is cheaper and gives you control over the ingredients you use. It also provides the culinary curious with the ability to exercise a little creativity for the taste buds.

If you are looking for a way to jazz up this dish, you need to try this sweet and savory condiment that will change your avocado toast forever.

Top it off with tomato jam

According to Well + Good and Chef Nyesha Arrington, tomato jam is the condiment your avocado toast is missing. Arrington lauded this addition to avocado toast in an episode of "Cook with Us." Arrington revealed, "It's both sweet, savory, and just a little spicy." It's also a little meaty and chunky in texture, pairing perfectly with the creaminess of the avocado. But the real beauty of tomato jam is you can make it yourself. 

While Arrington explains that tomato paste is the foundation of this thick mixture, tomatoes, onions, and a host of spices create a festive and fresh flavor. To give it a little heat, she adds some cayenne pepper and Fresno chilis but tempers it with the sweetness of some agave nectar. 

Of course, the only thing better than tomato jam on your avocado toast is tomato-bacon jam. Grab a Plate says it's easy to make because there is no long and tedious canning process involved. To add to the savory essence of the bacon, they add maple syrup, noting this sweet tomato-bacon jam can also be used beyond your avocado toast with eggs and burgers.
