Peppered Butter and Pear Toast.

As big of a fan that I am, I have to admit that the whole avocado toast trend is starting to get tired. Sure, someone breathed fresh air into it by creating the avocado rose, but it's the exact same thing, is it not? This being said, put anything and everything in front of me that incorporates avocado, in any form, and I will gladly eat it. If it's any indication of my love for avocado, I ate an entire Whole Foods container of guacamole yesterday. It was delicious.

At the end of the day, variety and change is a good thing. Have you ever attempted to eat leftovers two or three days in a row? It gets boring. Back in May, Smak published an article about Savory Toast, an delicious alternate for avocado toast. Today, Smak brings you another option - Peppered Butter and Pear Toast - something a bit sweeter, but equally balanced by the peppered butter and Maldon sea salt.

Pour yourself a cup of coffee, open up the latest edition of Drift Magazine, and enjoy breakfast.
