Grilled Cheese and Avocado



 We've all heard of the old fashioned grilled cheese sandwich, grilled cheese and tomato, grilled cheese with apple, grilled cheese with _____. So now it's time to add avocado into that blank.For those who've been following this blog for a while now may may know of my love to avocados.

Served this with some good ol' fashioned creamy tomato soup. Grilled cheese is on the top list of ultimate comfort foods. It doesn't get any simpler than that. The cheese I used is shredded mozarella and a couple slices of sourdough bread.

Makes 2 sandwiches.




Grilled Cheese and Avocado

4 slices of bread
1 c shredded mozzarella
1 ripe avocado - pitted and sliced
butter

Spread some butter on all 4 slices of bread. Take two slices and divide the cheese and avocado evenly between the two top with the other two slices buttered side out.

Heat a skillet, place on side of the sandwich down and toast the bread for 2-3 minutes on medium heat until the bread is browned. Flip the sandwich and cook for another 2-3 minutes until browned.

Serve warm with some soup or alone.

Grilled cheese stands alone but with avocado, it stands higher. This is great and I can taste it, just looking at it.

Sprinkle Cinnamon/sugar on prior to cooking. Sound Crazy but, tastes delicious!
