When it comes to breakfast items, few have been at the center of American culture quite like avocado toast has in the last decade. It's satisfying, it's filled with healthy fats, and, according to some critics, it's the reason that millennials cannot afford to buy their own homes. No matter the hype, avocado toast is a simple dish with only two core ingredients: avocado and, well, toast. But it can be more complex, with restaurants adding spins on the otherwise basic recipe.

Don't be surprised to see avocado toast topped with ingredients such as whipped feta cheese, tomatoes, bacon, eggs, arugula, red onion, and an array of seasonings. It works for breakfast, brunch, and lunch, especially if the ingredients are piled high on a thick-cut piece of bread that keeps you full all afternoon.

Several breakfast chains across the country specialize in avocado toast, with toppings ranging from the bare necessities to everything but the kitchen sink. A few chains carry the item on the menu all day, meaning no matter what hour you're craving avocado toast, you're not too far from a restaurant serving it.
