Garlicky Avocado Toast with Crottin de Chavignol


Garlicky Avocado Toast with Crottin de Chavignol
This flavor-packed avocado toast comes together in a snap. If you can’t find Crottin de Chavignol, substitute another small, aged goat cheese such as Vermont Creamery Bijou.
Ingredients
  1. 12-inch French-style baguette, cut into 6-inch lengths and sliced open horizontally
  2. 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  3. 1 Hass avocado
  4. Salt, to taste
  5. Ground black pepper, to taste
  6. 1 2-ounce Crottin de Chavignol, cut into 8 equal pieces
Instructions
  1. In an oven or toaster, toast baguette pieces until lightly browned. Cut garlic cloves in half, and rub one half on each piece of toast. Discard any remaining garlic.
  2. Halve the avocado, and slice into ½-inch pieces. Top each piece of toast with a quarter of the avocado slices, and mash slightly with a fork to adhere the avocado to the toast. Salt and pepper the avocado toast to taste, top with cheese, and serve.
