Whipped Avocado-Goat Cheese Toasts

So, as a food blogger, it is my obligation to stay on top of food trends (just in case you didn’t know). I have tried my best to stay seasonal and pass along tasty trends to you guys. Sometimes, these trends are not so tasty, so I keep them to myself.

For example, kale chips. Remember that trend? Oh, wait, you don’t? That is because I tried this whole craze and decided for myself and all of you that this trend wasn’t for us. The “chips” disintegrated in my mouth and made my whole house smell like somebody had a bad case of gas. Sorry. I know that isn’t appetizing, but it is my duty to be honest with you.

If you like kale chips, good for you. Sorry I just could not get on that bandwagon.

Lucky for all of us, there is a new hot food trend sweeping the screens of your Instagram feed—avocado toast. What is it? It is an avocado smashed on top of a toasted or grilled piece of crusty bread. It is a much healthier alternative to using butter or jelly/jam as a topping.

I for one am a huge fan of this trend. Smashed avocado on a toasted English muffin, whole wheat pita, or thick slice of sourdough with a few dashes of Cholula is the perfect breakfast or even a snack.

I found a way to make this trend into a fancy and totally not healthy appetizer. Why, whip it together with goat cheese of course! If you aren’t a goat cheese lover, you can also do this with cream cheese. This is a quick appetizer that you can throw together for last minute guests or even eat all alone for breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner. It is perfect any time.

  1. I was OK with kale chips but I couldn’t sell them to Brian so that trend faded away around here. I didn’t know that avocado on toast is a new trend (I’m obviously not doing a good job with the whole food blogger trend thing) but it’s nice to know that I’ve actually been unknowingly trendy for years. I usually have avocados around so, when I can’t think of what I want for lunch, I just spread them on toasted bread, sprinkle on some sea salt and call it a meal. Yummy! Goat cheese? I eat that like a snack. :)

  2. Thanks for testing out trends and only delivering the worth-while ones. This toast looks so good. I love that you jazzed it up with some goat cheese.

  3. Funny you posted this recipe today because I had a dream about avocado toast last night. Whipping it with goat cheese sounds like a winning combo!

  4. Wow, so yummy!

  5. Avocado toasts certainly are sweeping the Internets lately, aren’t they? I am a big big fan, and I like to keep it simple with just sea salt and pepper. But you’ve totally won me over with the addition of goat cheese. What ISN’T made better with goat cheese? Nothing.
    Oh, and Cholula stole my heart during my stay in Hawaii (’cause I was eating fish tacos at every opportunity). Must try to find it here!

  6. And yeah, I need to get on this trend stat. I was a little late to the avocado love game, but now that I appreciate it, avocado everywhere!

  7. That’s like, all of my favorite things at once! Soo good… I’d add a poached egg for breakfast too ;)

  8. Bahahaha dying over the kale chip talk. But these toasts….these I am ALL over. I loooove avocado toast and with goat cheese? HOT DANG.

  9. I am with you — kale chips? No thanks. But avocado toast — especially when it’s whipped with goat cheese? SIGN. ME. UP.

  10. I love avocado on anything but toast especially. Goat cheese and avocado together sounds delicious!

    Stefanie – your comments about the Kale chips made me laugh out loud! I also tried to get on board the kale chips train and no amount of seasoning or olive oil spray added any flavor enhancement. However, these whipped avocado goat cheese toasts look amazing and are on my list of go to appetizer recipes.

      I can dig kale in a salad with other greens, but the kale chips no way! I am glad I am not the only one!

  12. Love this!! :) what a fab idea, haven’t seen this before. Obviously not keeping up!

  13. Ahhh I so need to try the avocado toast thing and I wanna try it your way!! Goat cheese=bliss.
