Over the weekend I had breakfast at Swingers, a popular LA diner. If you've never been there, you'll probably remember it as the spot an awkward Seth Rogan took Katherine Heigl the morning after they made a baby...
Anyhoozers. It's a good restaurant, I like it. And even more now after my random breakfast order this weekend: Avocado Toast. It was described on the menu as thick, multi-grain toast, olive oil, sliced avocado, lemon, kosher salt and chili flakes. What? I had to try, and was very pleased with myself when the waitress told us it was the best thing on the menu. She wasn't wrong. It was so delicious. The toast had just enough crunch, it was smothered with bright avocado, fresh lemon juice, a sprinkle of salt - always necessary with avocado - and the chili flakes offered this wonderful heat.
I knew I had to recreate it as soon as I got home, and that I did. The easiest thing to make, and would be great as an appetizer. Your friends would say, wow, you're cool because you made this.
