More than any other time of year, winter is when I crave avocado toast. It’s a feel-good way to start the day, and the variations are endless. One of those many versions is this balsamic-tomato avocado toast – it’s one of my faves, and I make it on repeat when I need a little morning boost.

It’s an Italian-themed slice of toast with a smear of mascarpone cheese, creamy slices of avocado, and sliced tomatoes. It ends with a drizzle of balsamic glaze, which ties everything together. It’s light and fresh, not to mention easy to make.

How to Make It

Balsamic glaze is just balsamic vinegar cooked down until it’s thick and drizzly. I used to make it myself, but you can find balsamic glaze at most grocery stores now. It’s worth having on hand not just for this avocado toast but for any recipe that needs a drizzle of sweet and tangy goodness.

  • 1 slice whole-grain bread, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • 2 slices of tomato
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze
  • A pinch of salt and sprinkling of chopped parlsey, optional


  1. Spread the mascarpone cheese on top of the toast.
  2. Top with sliced tomatoes, avocado, and drizzle the balsamic glaze over the top. Garnish with the salt and parsley.


Mascarpone cheese: This is a type of creamy Italian cheese. It’s similar to cream cheese, but it’s not tangy. It has a rich and milky flavor – perfect for spreading on toast. I usually find it near the deli section at the grocery store with other specialty cheeses.

Balsamic glaze: Most grocery stores carry balsamic glaze – it’s usually near the balsamic vinegar section or pesto and other Italian sauces. If you can’t find it, you can simmer balsamic vinegar until it reduces to a thick sauce.

Avocado Toast Variations

The only thing better than this balsamic tomato avocado toast is making it your own! I love this version, but it’s so easy to switch up the ingredients based on what you like or have on hand. I have a few ideas for you…

  • Bread: Use your favorite kind of bread – pretty much anything goes! It’s great with crusty Italian bread, tangy sourdough bread, or just a plain Jane slice of white bread. I also love to use Ezekiel bread.
  • Cheese: You can swap the mascarpone cheese for cream cheese or ricotta or leave it out if you want to skip the cheese.
  • I like Roma tomatoes because they’re meatier but use your favorite. Sometimes, I use cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes – just halve them and layer them on the toast.
  • Herbs: I usually have fresh parsley on hand, so it’s my go-to. Fresh basil is also delicious – it gives the toast a Caprese salad vibe.
  • Optional extras: A sprinkle of ground black pepper, a small drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for heat are all good additions.
