The Avocado Toast Bar Party for Teens

By Brenda Ponnay

Teens looking to keep busy in the afternoon? Know what is amazing to keep them occupied AND fed? Or are the kids hosting friends for a sleepover? Need a fun breakfast or brunch activity the next morning? An Avocado Toast Bar. It’s definitely a winner in my house.

Building an Avocado Toast Bar:

Step one: Buy a bunch of avocados.

Here’s my secret: Buy them when they are not ripe. Buy them in a bag (they usually come in bags of five) and make sure they are hard. Then let them ripen on your kitchen counter for a few days. Counter-ripened avocados are the best avocados because you know exactly when they will be ready! If you buy soft avocados at the store they will be overripe before you even know it and you’ll be cutting out those ugly brown spots. You will know your avocados are ripe when they have turned a darker shade and give slightly to the touch.

See? A perfect avocado!

Step Two: Set up your avocado toast bar.

All you need to do is layout an area with your bowl of avocados, a toaster, a basket of a few types of bread and then a table full of every topping you can think of.

Here are a few of our favorite toppings for your Avocado Toast:

  • sprouts
  • rice wine vinegar
  • siracha
  • sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds
  • tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • crumbly cheese
  • radishes (do a quick pickle if you like with vinegar)
  • limes
  • crunchy salt  (we love Maldon’s sea salt flakes)
  • pepper flakes

You get the idea. Anything goes!

Enlist your kids to help. Tweens and teens are great at cutting up vegetables.

And those who don’t like to help in the kitchen can always make a fun party sign.

Now it’s time to get busy.

Toast your bread, slice your avocados and get to decorating! We even had a contest to see who could make the prettiest toast.

You’ll be surprised at what your kids will eat when they are creating their own masterpieces.
