Avocado Veggie Bleu Toast. Toasted bread with toppings has become an easy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I’m always a fan of PBJ on whole grain toast or almond butter with banana slices and a drizzle of honey on cinnamon swirl toast. This time, I wanted to take my fave veggies along with some bleu cheese and put them on toast for a fab lunch. It’s an open-face sandwich that you can eat with a knife and fork.

Everyone thinks the “toast” craze is something new. It’s not. In my teenage years in the late 70s, I lived in “West” Germany. This was well before the Berlin Wall came down. My dad used to take us to a restaurant for Saturday lunch that featured toasted thick bread with a variety of toppings. I remember ordering the “Hawaiian Toast” a lot. The Hawaiian Toast included a large piece of toasted bread with warm melted cheese, a slice of ham, and a ring of pineapple. Sometimes I would order the “Italian Toast” which included an herbed tomato sauce, spicy sausage, and mozzarella cheese. I can’t remember the name of the restaurant and it’s probably not there anymore. Yet it was pretty popular for it’s “toast” offerings. I wish I had kept a copy of the menu.

To make my Avocado Veggie Bleu Toast, start with some good multigrain bread.

Cut a thick slice and toast the bread either in your toaster or under the broiler until golden brown.

When the bread has toasted nicely, remove it and let it cool to room temperature.

Slice a ripe tomato. Peel, pit, and slice a ripe avocado. Cut some mini-carrots into thin matchsticks. Thinly slice a shallot. Mince some chives. Have some bleu cheese crumbles ready. Make some balsamic vinegar syrup for drizzling.
