Shamrock Toasts

St. Patrick’s day is tomorrow! – so what can you make for a quick breakfast on a weekday that everyone will love AND that is festive?  How about

Avocado Shamrocks

A little cheese – a lot of avocado – and you can eat it on the go! 

What you need:

  • 4 large slices of bread or 8 small slices
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese cut into small pieces
  • 2 whole avocados
  • Shamrock cookie cutter

How to Do it:

Toast until brown.

 

While still hot, place the cheese around the bread still keeping the shamrock shape. 20160309-IMG_5261

Allow to melt into the toast (You can microwave it for about 30 seconds to speed it along).

Cut the avocados in half and mash, still in the shell, with a fork.

Note: I use a cheese slicer to get fairly thin slices off of chunk cheese (which is cheaper than pre-sliced.
