This Ricotta Avocado Toast is a simple yet scrumptious breakfast or lunch!

Ricotta Avocado Toast - an easy and delicious breakfast idea!

I’m the type of person that will eat the same 3 breakfasts/lunches again and again. It’s easy and you don’t have to do as much brain work. So I was really stepping out of the box when I created this Ricotta Avocado Toast. I had a bit of leftover ricotta from making lasagna, and I decided to spread it on my toast so it wouldn’t go to waste. To my delight, it was delicious! Now I know what to do with those little bits of leftover ricotta.

Here are the simple ingredients that you’ll need: a slice of sourdough bread, ricotta cheese (duh!), butter, avocado, lemon, and salt + pepper.

This stuff is not rocket science: Toast the bread, spread on a layer of butter, top with ricotta, add salt + pepper to your heart’s content, and squeeze lemon juice on top.

You can get all fancy with an avocado rose, or you can be sensible and just lay slices on top. More salt + pep are in order!

You can sprinkle on some chili flakes if that makes you happy, or leave them off it spicy food isn’t your thing! An egg would also be a lovely addition for some extra oomf.

And there you have it: Ricotta Avocado Toast!

How about you? Do you eat the same basic things again and again, or do you eat a different breakfast/lunch every single day?

I had no idea that Ricotta would taste so good on toast. I always have extra ricotta left over, so I will be eating this often. Next time I will add a little bacon.

Hi, Erica!

So pretty! It makes me wish I could eat ricotta cheese.

Like you, I eat the same one or two things for breakfast and lunch everyday. I eat either old fashioned oats with wild local honey -- drizzle -- and some heavy cream or Greek yogurt with fruit for breakfast. For lunch I'll eat salad with a little meat or chicken or Wasa brot with cheese. I use my imagination for supper. ; )

Hey Diane,

Thank you! That's too bad that you can't eat ricotta! :(

Mmmm...your oatmeal sounds delicious! I love oats for breakfast. Yes! Same - I do different things for supper each night, just not breakfast and lunch. Haha!
