It was when guests arrived unexpectedly and I offered them Sunday lunch that I knew there was enough of the main course available, but no hors d’oeuvre. So I went into the kitchen to see what was available. There was a ripe avocado. So I fried pieces of my home-made bread in olive oil, drained them, and placed mashed avocado on top. They were much enjoyed.
You will need:
Small pieces of crustless bread
Pepper and salt
Chopped onion or shallot
Chilli (powder or sauce)
Fry desired slices of crustless bread on both sides in olive oil. Allow them to drain on kitchen paper.
In a bowl put the flesh of a ripe avocado. Add finely chopped onion or shallot, pepper and salt, and either chilli powder or chilli sauce. Mix it all together.
Put the avocado mix on to the pieces of fried bread. Serve.
