Thank you to Mirum shopper for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
School hasn’t quite started for us. We have one last week of summer vacation to enjoy but I already feel a little frenzied as the onslaught children’s of activities have started up again.
Both of my girls play soccer so we have 4 practices each week, 2 games and one tournament a month. Plus jazz dance classes and cheerleading. Oh and ballet rehearsals for the Nutcracker. Did I mention my husband also plays soccer three nights a week? We love to stay busy and active but it does make a dinner a bit of an issue as I am sometimes gone from school pickup until 7pm running from practices and rehearsals. Are you in the same boat?
Meal planning is a must in our house and I have learned to embrace simplicity with meals on busy nights. Sandwiches, soups and omelettes appear on the menu at least once a week- quick, easy and very filling. I am a vegetarian and the rest of the family eats meat so I often struggle to find something quick for myself that is filling and healthy. Once things settle down in the evening, I dash off to the gym to get my workout in before bedtime, so quick really is key.
Avocado toast is one of my favorites for a quick meal and this is a fun little variation on Avocado Toast courtesy of Best Foods®. Best Foods® challenged me to try something different- one of their Strangewich sandwich recipes. Classic sandwich recipes that have an unexpected twist to make something totally new for dinner.
I have to say my Strangewich was really quite good and best of all it just takes minutes to prepare. I can totally take this on the go.
Here are the basic ingredients- you probably already have these on hand:
- 4 slices Whole Wheat Toast
- ½ cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
- up to 2 tsp sriracha (add to taste)
- Toast whole wheat bread.
- Mix sriracha and mayo in a small bowl.
- Spread mixture on toast and top with sliced or mashed avocado.
- Top with salt and pepper, a sprinkle of chives or sliced almonds for extra crunch.
I like to mix the sriracha and mayo together but you can also spread the mayo directly on your toast and just drizzle the sriracha on top.
I prefer to mash the avocado and I usually drizzle in lemon or lime juice to give it a little zip.
And if you want to give this recipe a shot, head over to your local Target store (find locations here) to pick up Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise in a 20oz squeezable bottle priced at 2 for $7!
If you give this recipe a shot, please come back and let me know what you think! And if you’d like a few more ideas to give your meal planning a twist, see some additional Strangewich recipes here.
