    In case you don’t have time to go out or want some toast on the go, we’ve found THE most amazing thing. Ever. Go Avo is avocado spread, which is an avocado-based condiment that is smashed avocado in “mayo” form. But don’t let the word mayo on the bottle fool you, it’s basically just spreadable avocado {and like regular avocado, it’s only good for a week and must be refrigerated}. Each bottle of Go Avo contains nearly 90% avocado in addition to oil, vinegar, and lemon juice — creating a creamy texture,  perfect for a party with some crackers, or to put on a sandwich.

    Homemade Avocado Toast Recipes {by Casey 2 Cook}

    avocado toast recipe casey 2 cook

    Basic Avo Toast: 

    Toast a slice of your favorite bread, mash up some avocado and spread it on top. Cook an egg to your liking {mine is sunny side up, because yolk dripping over avocado and toast = YUM},  then place that over the top and season with sea salt, black pepper, and crushed red chili pepper.

    Avo Toast with Eggs:

    Use a glass or mug to cut a hole in the center of the bread. Next, place into a greased frying pan over medium heat and crack your egg into the center. Cook the egg within the bread to your liking, and then remove and cover with avocado. Season with sea salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes.
