The Simple Ingredient To Enhance The Flavor And Texture Of Avocado Toast

Avocado toast has come a long way since it was seemingly only used as a metaphor for millennial spending habits. Not only is it now a universally beloved breakfast staple that you can find on just about any restaurant brunch menu, but it has also evolved in new and exciting ways. Chefs and home cooks alike are experimenting with a whole slew of toppings; from spices that add an extra kick, to unexpected extras like hummus, mayonnaise, and even a grated hard boiled egg.

However, if you're on the lookout for yet another fresh way to enjoy your avocado spread, we have a suggestion that's perhaps so simple and obvious, you'll wonder why you didn't think of it sooner. The delicious, does-it-all blend that is everything bagel seasoning is the perfect and easy add-on that enhances your spread. The next time you whip up an avocado toast, you'll want to reach for this mix to seriously upgrade your snack.

The crunchy seasoning complements the avocado

Whether you snag a pre-made jar from your local grocery store, or make it yourself, everything bagel seasoning typically features a combination of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried onion, dried garlic, and salt — the flakier, the better. All of these individual ingredients come together to achieve the desired result: tricking your taste buds into thinking they're enjoying a fresh everything bagel, of course.

Sans the bagel, though, the seasoning adds a well-rounded flavor to anything it touches. Given the mild and earthy taste of avocado; the savory, nutty, and slightly toasty flavors of the seeds and spices are particularly suited to complement avocado toast. While we all know that the key component of yummy avocado toast is the soft, moisture-rich creaminess of the fruit, the addition of these crunchy toppings will provide a palate-pleasing range of texture, giving the dish a delightfully surprising bit of extra bite.

Although a simple sprinkle of the stuff on your avocado is really all you need to enhance the dish, you can also combine the blend with other fan-favorite toppings including eggs, herbs, and/or zesty vegetables to create an extra-fulfilling meal. Like its name suggests, the seasoning goes with, well, "everything" — bagel not required.
