Avocado is one of those foods that has gotten randomly trendy over the past couple years. The very fact that foods become trendy is still a strange concept to me, but regardless, this avocado obsession is actually one I can get behind. One of my favourite dorm room snacks is an avocado doused in pepper, and when the cafeteria serves guacamole it's a straight-up holiday.
Luckily for me and my fellow avocado lovers, there are so many different ways to prepare this tasty superfruit. So, I share with you these creative ways to eat avocado for breakfast. Some are classics, some are new creations, and all are delicious.
1. The Classic: Avocado Toast

Some recipes are classics for a reason. They are quick, simple and above all else, delicious. Avocado toast is easily the most common avocado-based breakfast dish. However, there's more to this recipe than mashing up some green fruit on toasted bread. Try topping the toast with ricotta, egg, or even grilled peach.
2. Baked Egg in an Avocado

For a different take on the egg and avocado combination, try combining the two right from the start of the cooking process. This breakfast has a total prep and cook time of about 25 minutes. Pretty good timing for a delicious and nutritious meal.
3. Vegan Avocado Smoothie

When I first read that title my taste buds became a little confused. Avocado is not something I imagine tasting particularly good blended up into a drinkable consistency. This recipe calls for only three ingredients, which makes me a little more inclined to try it out.
4. Avocado Egg Salad

Add a new twist to this classic sandwich ingredient by infusing it with avocado. By mixing up eggs and avocado you are left with a sandwich filling that could be used for breakfast or lunch. The best part? It only takes about 20 minutes to mix up, and can be stored for a few days.
5. Avocado Chicken Salad

This recipe swaps mayonnaise for avocado in this classic chicken salad recipe. You can add in any extras you like, such as nuts or cranberries, to cater the dish to your taste buds. When spread on toast, this is a quick and easy breakfast essential.
6. Turkey Avocado Panini

This sandwich is described as Cuban style and features cheese, turkey, and avocado on a toasted bun. It promises to have a crunchy exterior and warm flavourful inside. I think this is one recipe I could handle for every meal of the day.
