  7.  1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes — optional
  8.  Chopped fresh herbs: cilantro — parsley, chives, etc.

Instructions
  • Slice bagel in half. If the hole is very small, tear out some of the center to make it larger or use a round cookie cutter, small juice glass, or biscuit cutter to cut a larger hole. Lightly spread the cut sides of the bagel with butter. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using). Taste and add additional seasoning if desired.
