- Whole grain bread: Hearty enough to hold the weight of the ingredients as well as flavorful. But the type of bread is totally up to you!
- Cottage cheese: I use low fat cottage cheese and it adds great flavor and texture, as well as being protein, calcium, and vitamins and minerals.
- Avocado: Naturally rich in flavor and creamy in texture, it’s also a huge source of protein, fiber, and vitamin C.
- Tomato: A bit sweet, juicy, and chalk full of vitamins.
- Red onion: Mild enough to eat raw, but strong enough to add a zing of sharp flavor.
How to Make Avocado Toast with Cottage Cheese and Tomatoes
Start you Avocado Toast with Cottage Cheese and Tomatoes by slicing and toasting your whole grain bread. You could use white bread or whatever wheat bread you have on hand as well, but seedy, whole grain, crusty bread is my favorite!
Then cut your fresh avocado in half and slice into thin slices, and slice your fresh tomatoes.
Spread your cottage cheese evenly on each slice of toast.
Season each with a bit of salt and pepper, then layer with tomato slices.
Top the tomatoes with avocado slices.
And a pinch more of salt and pepper.
Finish your toast by thinly slicing red onion and adding to the top of your toast.
Enjoy your delicious breakfast of Avocado Toast with Cottage Cheese and Tomatoes.
Additions / Substitutions:
- Up the protein. Cottage cheese is already high protein, but bacon strips would taste great, or use bacon bits to keep it a “no cook” meal.
- Switch the cheese. If you’re not a fan of cottage cheese, spreadable cheese with chives would be a good substitute.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is avocado toast good for losing belly fat?
Because avocados are packed with monounsaturated fats (the good kind of fat), it actually helps you burn fat and keeps it from accumulating around your middle!
What is the difference between avodaco toast and guacamole toast?
It’s basically as it sounds, with avocado toast simply being smashed or sliced avocado, and guacamole toast using guacamole that usually includes other ingredients like lime juice, garlic, onion, and sometimes bits of tomato.
How do you keep cut avocado from turning brown?
Keep the pit! By keeping the pit with the avocado and putting it in an airtight container in the fridge, you can slow the browning. You can also sprinkle it with lime or lemon juice!

I needed a easy thing to make and eat for our stay at a cabin and I did not think cottage cheese and bread/toast would be good but this is outstanding!!! I love it. I will have to wait till summer for fresh tomatoes, but the avocado and cottage cheese was good enough. I also only like Michigan brand cottage cheese. I can’t stop eating it now! Thanks so much!!
I’m so glad you enjoyed these!! One of my favorites!!
I decided to make this for my sister and niece and it was a huge hit! It is now our need lunch fast meal. I use fat free cottage cheese and put cucumber slices out in case someone wants a change from the avocado.
I am eating this as I type and it is delicious! I added some cheddar to it and I am in love. I’m surethis will be a common thing for me now.
Oh yummy :) this is my kind of sandwich!! I love this combination!

I love simple recipes that only take a few minutes to make. Perfect when you’re late in the morning ;) Plus there’s avocado so it’s a total winner in my book!

I love anything with avocados in it. Now you add bread to it and in my book you have a super winner. What a great snack, light lunch or dinner :-)

I pretty much have to go with no-cook breakfasts or I tend to go without altogether. I don’t give myself any time in the morning for cooking breakfast. I love the sound of this – healthy and filling but so flavorful!
It’s funny, aside from a fried egg I really have been all about no cook breakfasts myself!!
This sandwich is literally all of my favorite foods piled into one recipe… plus, it’s a sandwich. And I love me a sandwich. :) YUMS!
hahah I love the “plus it’s a sandwich.” :) So true!
Why have I never thought of the idea to pair avocado with toast? So simple! And I love your idea to add in the cottage cheese and tomatoes. I’ve got tomatoes from my in-laws garden that I’m just itching to use. This is perfect. :)
Oh yes girl avocado and toast has endless opportunities!!! Enjoy your tomatoes – I am loving tomato season this year!!
