Girl Smarts: 9 avocado breakfasts that don't involve toast

9 avocado breakfasts that don't involve toast

But if you're just enjoying avocados at breakfast in toast form, then you're seriously missing out.

Let's get one thing out of the way: Avocado toast is awesome. It's filling, it's infinitely adaptable, and it makes for a really nice photo. I love avocado almost as much as Antoni from Queer Eye.

But if you're just enjoying avocados at breakfast in toast form, then you're seriously missing out.

There's a whole world of tasty, interesting avocado breakfasts out there just waiting for you to shake things up a little. Try any one of these nine recipes next time you're in an avo toast rut.
