Low Carb Avocado Toast

Low Carb Avocado Toast

Today we're going to make the perennial hipster favorite: avocado toast.

But before we do, I'd like to share another hipster favorite: the Indian Michael Jackson.  (below)

This Thriller knock-off is from the 1985 Indian action film Donga

It's a Robin Hood tale about a guy who steals from the rich and gives to the poor.  He is in love with a woman, but has vowed revenge upon her father.  Also, he needs 50,000 rupees for his sister's dowry.  So there is a lot going on.  I cannot imagine how the Thriller sequence fits into the narrative, but it's pretty great just on it's own.  

But back to avocado toast, the latest brunch craze.

 Low Carb Avocado Toast on Wasa Cracker Recipe

As you probably know, avocado toast is an open faced sandwich made of mashed avocado, citrus juice, salt and pepper on toasted bread.  

For our low carb version, I decided to go with Wasa Light Rye Crackers instead of toast.  These crackers are my go to whenever I am dying for something bread-y.  The crackers are topped with a mixture of mashed avocado and lemon juice.  Throw a hard boiled egg and some seasoned salt on top and you are done.  You've got a tasty piece of avocado toast with only 7g net carbs per slice.

But now I must get back to Indian Thriller.  It's after midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark.
