What others are saying
Melissa Hunter says:
I used chicken sausage instead of turkey, and it was super delicious. I didn't do the cranberries or walnuts either, just the toast with avocado, sausage, and a fried egg with runny yolk in the middle. It was fantastic.
Alexis Pearson says:
I always have a hard time finding "rustic style" bread, so I used plain wheat toast and it came out great. I also skipped the cranberries, they're not really my thing. Simple changes, delicious results!
Jessica Scott says:
I wish my mom packed me these turkey sandwiches when I was a kid! These are definitely the grown up version, so filling and delicious! My boyfriend is totally spoiled when I make him this, and of course, I add extra turkey meat!
Greg Jones says:
I love a good avocado toast! I'm not a fan of cranberries so I used pomegranate seeds instead. The cheddar, balsamic glaze and turkey go together very well. Good for a light lunch or after a workout for fuel.
Tal Levitas says:
Big fan of this recipe, though be prepared to eat it open faced, it's too big and messy to eat.
