Everything bagel with avocado
If you love guacamole as much as I do, avocado toast may likely be part of your weekly breakfast routine.
Skip the toast and grab an everything bagel for the ultimate avocado everything bagel experience!
We're topping the bagel with a delicious avocado mash and lots of seasoning. Feel free to add other toppings for a loaded avocado vibe, much like this loaded guacamole.
- Bagels - I love using Everything bagels but any variety works well. Try onion, sesame, garlic, cheddar, asiago, or pumpernickel - the options are endless.
- Avocado - Haas avocados have dark green, bumpy skin. When ripe, they will give a little when applying gentle pressure. They are widely available year-round, which makes them a popular staple for sandwiches, salads, and all of your favorite Tex-Mex dishes.
- Lime (or lemon) juice - Avocados need acid. It prevents the avocado flesh from turning an unsightly brown-black. It also adds a bright, fresh flavor. I prefer lime, but if you prefer a slightly sweeter, less tart bite, go with lemon juice.
- Everything bagel seasoning - An absolute must on avocado toast in my opinion! I make this seasoning and keep it on hand at all times - we use a lot of it! You can easily find this at the supermarket if you don't have the individual ingredients on hand.
- Salt - Avocados need salt just as much as they need acid. I prefer using Maldon flaky sea salt.
- Red pepper flakes - Totally optional but if you like a little heat, don't skip this!
See the recipe card for complete instructions and ingredient amounts.
- Cut the avocados in half lengthwise by running your knife top to bottom until you feel the pit. Gently rotate the avocado until you have sliced around the whole avocado.
- With your hands, gently twist the avocado to separate the two halves. Carefully hit the pit with the blade of your knife and wiggle the pit free. Discard the pit. (Image 1)
- Scoop out the flesh of the avocado into a bowl. TIP: I like to make cross-cuts through the flesh so it creates small chunks when I scoop it out. This makes it so easy to mash afterward. (Image 2)
- When the flesh of both avocados has been scooped out, squeeze in the lime juice and add salt to taste.
- Mash the mixture with a fork. You can leave it chunky or mash it smoother. The consistency is totally up to you. (Image 3)
- Cut the bagel in half and toast. (Image 4)
- Spread the avocado on the bagels. Top with everything bagel seasoning, red pepper flakes, or other toppings as desired.
- For larger bakery-style bagels, figure one avocado per bagel.
- Prepare the avocado spread when ready to assemble the bagels. If you need to prep it ahead of time, cover it with plastic wrap, pushing the wrap down directly on top of the avocado to block out the air, then store it in an airtight container for up to 1 day.
- Set out a toppings bar so everyone can garnish their own avocado bagel.
More topping suggestions
- Pea shoots and crumbled feta
- Eggs - hard-boiled, scrambled, or fried

- Crumbled bacon
- Dash of hot sauce
- Spread a layer of scallion cream cheese on the bagel before topping with the avocado.

- Meanwhile, cut the avocados in half lengthwise by running your knife from top to bottom until you feel the pit. Gently rotate the avocado until you have sliced around the whole avocado.
- Gently twist the avocado to separate the two halves. Carefully hit the pit with the blade of your knife and wiggle the pit free. Discard the pit.
- Scoop out the flesh of the avocado into a bowl. (Note 1)
- Squeeze in the lime juice. Start with the juice of ½ of a lime and add more to taste. (Note 2) Season to taste with salt. Mash the mixture with a fork, leaving it as chunky or as smooth as you like.
- Spread the avocado on the toasted bagels. Top with everything bagel seasoning, red pepper flakes, and more flaky sea salt if desired. Serve immediately.
- Make cross-cuts in the flesh of the avocado before scooping it out. Creating these smaller chunks makes easy work of mashing the avocado.
