Roasted Garlic Avocado Toast
Let’s talk about roasted garlic for a second. It’s the sex of food: sweet, caramelized (when done right), potent, satisfying, having some just makes you want more, and everybody lies about it. Search your favorite recipe blogs, and they’ll tell you to roast garlic for 30 minutes at 350F. That’s bullshit. Do it that way and you’ll have barely roasted garlic. Roasted garlic takes 1 hour at 350F. Chef Jay Weinstein taught that at culinary school and it’s never failed me.
Do it like this: Slice a head of garlic in half widthwise. Rub a little olive oil on it. Hit it with some S&P (and a leaf of basil if you’re feeling fancy), wrap it up on foil, throw it in the oven for 1 hour at 350F. Pull it out and let it cool.
Smash an avocado and a head of roasted garlic together in a little bowl with salt, pepper and the juice of 1 lime. Make 2 pieces of toast. Spread the avocado mix on the toast. Cook 2 eggs over medium. Top the toast with the eggs. Shake some crushed red pepper on top. Delicious.
