Avocado Cloud Toast

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 servings


2 large eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch cream of tartar
1 ounce cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 large avocado
4 slices fresh tomato
Salt, to taste
Fresh cracked pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar with a hand mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form, about 30 seconds.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat together the cream cheese, egg yolk and garlic powder until pale in color and well combined.
  4. Gently fold the egg whites into the cream cheese mixture.
  5. Spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet in 4-inch circles, spacing them 1 to 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until lightly golden brown. Keep an eye on the buns as they bake. Then remove from the oven and cool completely.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise and fresh lemon juice.
  8. Open and pit the avocado; then cut it into quarters and slice thin.
  9. Toast the buns and spread with the mayonnaise mixture.
  10. Top each bun with 1 slice of tomato and 1 quarter of the sliced avocado.
  11. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
