Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwiches


Grilled cheese sandwiches are so tasty and it's so easy to add new ingredients to them to change them up. I saw this recipe for guacamole grilled cheese sandwiches on Two Peas and their Pod and thought it would be good to give them a try, since I love avocado. What an easy way to jazz up a grilled cheese sandwich! I was a bit worried they would be too rich, but the cheese and the avocado actually complement each other very nicely. I'll definitely make these again!

Ingredients:
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 handful of cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • Lime or lemon juice to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Tabasco sauce to taste
  • Good quality bread
  • Aged cheddar
  • Butter

Make the guacamole first by mixing the avocado, cherry tomatoes, lime or lemon juice, salt and pepper, and Tabasco sauce. You can either mix it all together in a food processor or just smash it all together in a bowl with a fork. I like leaving the guacamole chunkier for these sandwiches. There should be enough for two or three sandwiches.

Butter one side of the bread slices. I often use normal grocery store sliced bread, but this time I bought a loaf of crusty bread and it was so much tastier. Layer the guacamole and cheese on the bread with the butter side out, and then grill away. We have a George Foreman grill that I used for the first time making grilled cheese sandwiches, rather than grilling them in a pan like I usually do, and they came out so much crispier and lighter. I'll never go back to using pans again!



I like this version even better my than my bruschetta grilled cheese sandwiches (though those are tasty too). The Tabasco adds a nice zing to the richness of the guacamole and the mellow cheese. Yum!

  16. I found your recipe on Pinterest. I let chia seeds soak into tomato juice and tomato to part of a tomato I chopped up for 15 minutes. I added onion to avocado and cayenne pepper and used Monterey Jack cheese with a little shredded cheddar. I will make again. Thanks
