French toast with avocado is a variant of the classic French toast. A much more “exotic” variant that offers different hints than usual. The credit goes mainly to avocado, which is one of the main ingredients of this recipe (French toast with avocado). Specifically, it is used to make a truly delicious creamy, rich in flavour but balanced. Among other things, it is also prepared with lime juice, which gives it an acidic and pleasant scent. I want to clarify that avocado cream enhances the other ingredients, rather than covering them. The reference is in particular to the egg, which forms a large part of the filling (it is first boiled and then cut into wedges).
French toast with avocado, a bit like all toasts in this category, is quite simple to prepare. The only difficulty is given by the preparation of the avocado cream, which requires a minimum of manual skills. Above all, it requires a lot of attention to the doses, as the slightest variation can compromise the final result. The advice, therefore, is to respect the quantities and, in general, the indications that I will give you. If you follow the recipe to the letter, you too can enjoy fantastic and delicious French toast with avocado.
All the nutritional qualities of French toast with avocado
One of the protagonists of these simple but delicious French toasts is, in fact, avocado. Specifically, the pulp must be extracted, transferred to a bowl, mashed with a fork and combined with oil and lime juice (and a pinch of salt). The result is a balanced cream, with an irregular but very tasty texture. Is avocado fatty food? In principle yes, since it contains many lipids. However, these are “good” and help to lower bad cholesterol. From a caloric point of view, 100 grams of avocado contains 231 kcal, a rather high figure for a fruit. However, the recommended doses for this recipe are minimal, therefore there is no risk of abuse.
Avocado is in its way a very healthy fruit, the reference is to the presence of vitamins, which abound and are very varied. In particular to vitamin A, B1, D and so on (E, K, H, PP). Avocado is also an excellent astringent, therefore a useful food to combat dysentery. Recent studies have shown that avocado is a cure-all for the liver since it contains galactosamine, a substance that reduces liver damage in the case of intoxication or mild to moderate ailments.
Why did we use clarified butter?
One of the most unique ingredients of the avocado french toast recipe is clarified butter. Who works in the pastry shop or restaurant certainly knows it, while it could be a partial “unknown” for people anyway. Probably many do not know the difference between clarified butter and normal butter, what you normally buy in the supermarket.
Well, clarified butter does not contain casein, a protein present instead of in normal butter and in general in milk and its derivatives (not subject to seasoning). The absence of casein makes butter suitable for frying, almost as if it were an oil. This is because casein tends to burn even at high temperatures. It is no coincidence that clarified butter is the most used frying fat in Northern European cuisine, or in any case outside of Italy.
Furthermore, the absence of casein deprives butter of much of its flavor. This is actually an advantage, as it allows you to use even large doses without being afraid that its flavor will cover others, and therefore find yourself with an unbalanced preparation from this point of view. Specifically, the role of clarified butter in the French toast recipe is very simple, just spread it on all sides of the bread, just like you would with normal butter.

Preparation of french toast with avocado

Boil the eggs in their skins for about ten minutes, then let them cool in a little cold water. Peel the eggs cut them into slices and leave them temporarily. Now take care of the avocados: divide them into two parts long, remove the core and also the peel.

Now complete the toast by applying the cream.
