After picking up an avocado at the grocery store, in hopes that I would do something cool with it, I had planned on making a toasted tomato sandwich with avocado on it. While that would have been a simple and tasty dish, it wasn’t very creative. Fortunately, inspiration struck courtesy of the ingredients in my fridge (red onion mainly!) and the Deconstructed Guacamole Sandwich was created! These tasted great and were super easy to make, perfect for a quick snack or a twist on the traditional guacamole appetizer at at party!
Deconstructed Guacamole Sandwich
Makes 1-2 servings
- ½ an Avocado
- 2 Tbsp Mayonnaise
- Garlic Salt
- ½ a Tomato
- 1 Slice of Red Onion
- Salt & Pepper
- 2 Slices of French Bread
As usual, I cook for myself, so the recipe is suited to serving one, meaning you just need to multiply the ingredients by the number of people you’re serving!
To start things off, slice and toast your bread. If you are serving a larger group, I would suggest cutting each slice in half, to make appetizer sized portions, and toast them in the oven on 400°F for a few minutes. While your bread is toasting, take two tablespoons of mayonnaise and mix in garlic salt to taste (garlic powder or garlic plus would also work). Next, slice up your tomato, avocado and red onion (I sliced the onion thinly, as I didn’t want it to be too pungent).
Once the bread is toasted, spread your garlic mayo mixture, top with onion, avocado, tomato, grind some salt and pepper to taste, and garnish with cilantro. That’s it! A super quick and creative twist on guacamole or a great way to elevate your timeless (but sometimes drab) toasted tomato sandwich!
