12 Avocado Breakfast Ideas That Are WAY More Exciting Than Toast

Please bear with me on this post.  Avocado in the morning is not everyone’s cup of tea.  Nor a salad either.   But here are 12 breakfast ideas that might pique your interest to try one, or two or twelve. My first choice is going to be Mexican Scrambled Eggs.  Need not be just for breakfast either.  Brunch anyone ?
