Other Ingredients

Instructions

  • Get out and measure all of your ingredients.

  • Add the salt and squeeze half a lemon on top.

  • Slice and toast your bread slices.
  • Spread on the avocado mixture and then place the sautéed mushroom’s on top.
  • Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds, if desired, and serve.

Notes

OPTIONS
With the mushroom mixture you can play with different spice options such as soy sauce, and red pepper flakes.
Likewise with the avocado mixture you can add different ingredients as well such as salsa, crushed tomatoes, etc.
The size of the bread will dictate the size of the individual slices. If serving a lot of people, then use a small diameter long loaf to get more pieces.
Using the lemon in the avocado not only adds taste but prevents the avocado from oxidizing and turning brown.
