Brunch-Worthy Basic Avocado Toast

Like so many posts here on For the Sake of Good Taste, the story behind this recipe take place in England.  Really, avocado toast was my primary sustenance while living abroad!  Whether I met up with a friend for brunch at Boston Tea Party or needed a filling breakfast before class, it was quick and delicious!  Over time, I’ve made my avocado toast recipe my own.
