Avocado, bread, seasonings — done. Those three ingredients are all it takes to make a basic slice of avocado toast. And when it comes to the directions to prep the toast, they're not much more complicated: slice, smash, sprinkle. But when Nigella Lawson debuted such a how-to on Simply Nigella, her series that recently premiered in Great Britain, it seems that the Internet was not too pleased with her simple step-by-step, as fans took to Twitter to share their frustration over the apparently too-basic dish. Check out Mashable to see what some are saying about the now-infamous non-recipe.

And if you, like Nigella, love avocado toast (who doesn't, really?) and want to dress it up, check out Food Network Kitchen's next-level how-to for  Avocado-Toast Breakfast Salad. While this is indeed an easy recipe, it goes beyond the slice-smash-sprinkle-serve staple we've all had before. Here the toast is topped with a light but satisfying arugula-feta salad featuring toasted sliced almonds for welcome texture.
