If you’re having trouble deciding what to make for brunch that will satisfy everyone, these hashbrown avocado toasts have you covered.
Blending all the crunchy, potato goodness of hashbrowns with the most important elements of avocado toast, these little bites are perfect for a brunch party when you want to make something impressive for a group.
Hashbrown patties are topped with delicious avocado, sour cream, and pea shoots. These are simple and delicious.
Try pairing them with drinks in fancy glasses like a mimosa or an espresso—make it whimsical and fun! I think these are delicious to serve alongside slices of melon and mango, but you can also lean into the more hearty breakfast foods and try breakfast sausages or eggs.
You’ll want to use soft avocados for this recipe. If your avocados are still firm, place them in a paper bag for a few days to help them soften up. This will help you get that creamy texture we’re looking for.
If you are shopping on the day of or the night before you make this toast recipe, find avocados that have a little bit of give when you squeeze them.
What You Need To Make Hashbrown Avocado Toast
These hashbrown avocado toasts require hashbrown patties, avocados, sprouts, lime, salt, and a pinch of sweet paprika. My family likes spicy food, so I also include a pinch of cayenne pepper, but that seasoning is optional.
You can use any hashbrown patties you want—homemade or frozen is fine. You just don’t want to use regular shredded hashbrowns. Those are too small and not the right shape for this dish.

To make this avocado toast on hash browns, you need a bowl, a fork, a baking sheet, a spoon, and a spatula. That’s it!
You’ll be using your oven to heat the hashbrown patties, so you can either use a traditional oven or a toaster oven to achieve the right crisp. I don’t recommend using a skillet for these because those can leave the final product a little too oily.
How To Make Hashbrown Avocado Toast
Bake the hashbrown patties: If using frozen, follow the directions on the packaging. I put my patties in an oven heated to 350ºF for 20 minutes. Remove the hashbrown patties when golden brown.
Mash the avocado: While the patties are cooking, half two avocados and scoop out the flesh with a spoon. Put them in a bowl and mash them with a fork.
Assemble the patties: Once the hash browns have finished cooking, remove them from the oven and allow them to slightly cool.
Then add a scoop of avocado to the hashbrown patty and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt, pepper, and paprika. Add a dollop of sour cream and finish with a little handful of pea shoots.
Repeat with the other hashbrown patties. Last, add a squeeze of lime for a pop of flavor.
Can I make these before I plan to serve them?
These are best enjoyed shortly after they have been assembled. If you plan on leaving these out for longer, I recommend brushing the avocado with some olive oil or adding a spritz of lime juice to help keep the avocado from browning.
How long can I keep these after I make them?
I don’t recommend keeping these for too many hours. The hash browns are best eaten warm, and the avocado is best eaten before it’s sat out for too long. If you want to pre-cook the hashbrown patties you can, you will just want to warm them up before you use them. Do not top them until you are ready to serve them.
What else can I use besides pea shoots?
Pea shoots add a nice texture and a little bit of height, contributing a nice look to the dish that is really fun! But if you don’t want to use them, try a few sprouts, a sprinkle of a few seeds like sesame seeds, or a few dashes of hot sauce for something a bit spicy.
