According to Bon Appetit, this is what New Zealanders call a warm open-face sandwich. The recipe they gave is for AVOCADO TOASTIES WITH KIWI SALSA AND BACON

8 slices bacon, cooked, drained and set aside

1 T plus 2 tsp. fresh lime juice - set aside the 2 tsp. juice for the avocado
1 teas. honey
3 large kiwis, peeled and cut into dice
1/2 cup chopped, fresh cilantro (seems like a lot, doesn't it?)
2 green onions, chopped
2 teas. hot sauce
Mix together and set aside

1 loaf ciabatta or pain rustique cut in half horizontally. Using a large griddle, put the bread cut-side down on it and "toast" it until it's the color you want.

2 avocados, halved, pitted, peeled - mash them with the 2 teas. lime juice

Spread the mashed avocado over the toasted bread, top with a slice of bacon and some salsa.

But I don't think New Zealanders then say, "Bon appetit!"
