Garlicky Avocado Toast with Crottin de Chavignol

Rebecca Haley-Park
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.


  • 12- inch French-style baguette cut into 6-inch lengths and sliced open horizontally
  • 2 garlic cloves peeled
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • Salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 2- ounce Crottin de Chavignol cut into 8 equal pieces


  • 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.
  • 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.
