BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – This year, the U.S. celebrates National Guacamole Day Friday, September 16.

Guacamole is known as a healthy snack as it’s made of avocados, which are rich in vitamins and healthy fats that are believed to contribute to lower cholesterol.

Foodies add the side dish to all sorts of meals, from salads to burgers to smoothies.

It can even make for a quick and tasty breakfast, like Guacamole Toast.

This simple five-minute meal involves spreading about 1/4 cup of guacamole onto a slice of toast and then layering the toast with either a fried egg or a few sprinkles of shredded cheese.
