Prep Your Ingredients
Halve the avocado and carefully remove the pit. With a small knife, cut the avocado into squares to make for easy mashing. A perfectly ripened avocado will have darkened skin and underneath the stem piece at the top, it will have a light, milky green color. Spoon out the avocado pieces into a bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado until it reaches a smooth, silky consistency. Note: You can add a splash of lime at this step also for some zing!
Add salt and pepper to taste to the avocado mash and toast your bread.
Chop the raisins into small pieces. This will allow you to form a tight alien eyeball. Gather about one-half teaspoonful of chopped raisins and roll them in your palm to form a ball. Make 3 balls for the signature Toy Story Alien triple vision. Here, the original recipe calls for halved black olives, so if you're a fan you can use those!
Form a Toy Story Alien
Next, let’s make the face. Take your avocado mash and spread it on the toast. Create an oval shaped alien head with the avocado.
Now, Let’s form the eyes. With about one teaspoonful of sour cream, dot the toast to form the whites of the alien eyes. Start with the center eye to make a symmetrical circle shape. The center eye will be slightly higher than the two eyes on the sides (about a quarter to half an inch depending on the size toast your using). Place one raisin ball in the center of each.
Finally, use the spinach to form the ears, mouth, and antenna. Using two similar sized spinach leaves, tuck in the small stem on either side of the avocado spread for the ears. With a small knife, take another spinach leaf and cut off a small, thin, crescent shape for the mouth. Trim another leaf to form the antenna. I like to start by trimming around the stem of the leaf and carefully shaping a small circle at the top.
