Quick & Delicious Camp Avocado Toast

Rashad Frazier, chef and co-founder of Camp Yoshi, loves this dish for an early morning call time before a group excursion. This simplest version requires little cooking and minimal clean-up. 

All the ingredients can be assembled quickly and his favorite part is how scalable/interchangeable the dish is, a theme you notice often throughout the dishes offered at Camp Yoshi. You can add a fried egg, bacon, smoked salmon, or whatever your heart desires.

Just remember to grab sesame seeds and a zester before you leave the front country! (These are two items that might be tough to source last-minute in the wilderness. 


  • 2 avocados
  • 1 loaf rustic bread  
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds  
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes 
  • Salt & black pepper to taste 
  • 1 lemon  
  • Zest of one lime
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Olive oil 
  • Mixed greens 
  • Salad dressing of your choice 



1. In a small bowl, mix sesame seeds, chili flakes, salt, pepper, and both the lemon and lime zest

2. Heat your grill.

3. While the grill is heating, prepare your bread by cutting it into thick slices. Oil both sides of each bread slice and then season with salt and pepper.

4. Place the pieces of bread in the pan and lightly press down until both sides are grilled to a light brown color.

5. Slice each avocado in half and remove the flesh from the skin and pit. In a bowl, mix the avocado with the sesame seed seasoning (using a fork is best). It should be very chunky.

6. Spread a liberal amount of the avocado mixture on each piece of toast. Finish by squeezing lemon juice over the top.

7. Serve with mixed green salad.
