I think you’ll like this avocado toast a lot lot
Haha…I’ll never be a rapper, but I call this “Boujee” Avocado Toast because just like the lyrics in the popular Migos tune “Bad and Boujee” it went from “nothin’ to somethin’.”
I hemmed and hawed over writing this post. First of all, this isn’t really a recipe because everyone already knows you just slap avocado toast together. Secondly, it contains an ingredient that is not readily available in Hilo. Ugh, I hate recipes like that! However, I thought maybe you have a “friend” that goes to Trader Joe’s and buys you stuff. I consider my mother-in-law my Trader Joe’s “friend” as she goes to Las Vegas very often. Truth be told, I don’t think she necessarily “likes” being my Trader Joe’s “friend.” I don’t blame her. Thank you, Granny Yvonne, for lugging back all of my Trader Joe’s crap year after year! (8/10/19 update–Amazon now has lots of other options for this seasoning!)
If you are lucky enough to have a TJ’s “friend” have them get you a bottle of Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend the next time they go!
Back to the toast. I wanted to make a quick appetizer for a special dinner I attended last weekend. I had some ripe avocados and settled on avocado toast. Really, it was all I could manage at the end of a harried week while my husband was away on “business.” As I haphazardly assembled the toasts I realized I had that bottle of TJ’s bagel seasoning in my cabinet. Just like I had seen on Instagram (over 5,000 #everythingbutthebagel posts) I sprinkled it on and (poof!) my humble avocado toast turned into an elevated boujee-version! This is what I did:
Misty’s “Boujee” Avocado Toast
8 slices Dave’s Good Seed Bread (Dave’s has two types, I used the more-boujee thin-sliced)
½ C. mayonnaise (or to your discretion, mayo is key please do not omit this!)
2 ripe avocados
Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend
- Slice avocados as thinly and as prettily as possible.
- Toast the bread and spread a generous amount of mayonnaise on each slice.
- Carefully “fan” out the avocado slices as nicely as possible (err…unlike what I did!)
- Sprinkle with TJ’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning.
That’s it, only easy! Word to your mother…
[…] get it….you know….just in case!” As if not trying TJ’s black truffle salt or stocking up on EBTBS Seasoning would be the end of my existence. It’s crazy. I’m slowly coming to realize I can live with […]
