October is always filled with creepy Halloween treats that make us laugh and often, wince with slight enjoyment. However, a toast that’s filled with good ingredients that’s actually edible for breakfast or brunch; like these Monster Eye Avocado Mash Toasts make the season even more spooktacular. This recipe can be a no-cook situation if you buy your hard boiled eyes at the store already cooked, however a few minutes in a bubbling salt water bath and you’re on the road to a haunted meal.
A quick mash of an avocado with a sprinkling of salt and pepper become the spread for a toasted piece of sourdough, and then the fun begins. Layering hardboiled eggs for eyes and topping with olive slices give these toasts that googly-eyed monster look and a squirt of sriracha or ketchup (for the younger ones) provides a blood shot presence that every scary Halloween snack deserves. I find these toasts quite frighteningly flavorful and most popular with both the younger and older generations. Boo.
