Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Hot damn.  I have never been this excited to make something off Pinterest – that is, in the short time that Pinterest has been around.  This hit my Pinterest feed 2 nights ago, and it’s being repinned over and over!  Below are the ingredients.  The guacamole makes a lot so be sure to have some limes or lots of sandwiches to make 😉

Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Guacamole Grilled Cheese

  • 2 Avocados
  • 1 tomato or a few grape tomatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 lime
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 slices of bread (per sandwich)
  • 3 Cheese slices (per sandwich – I used chipotle cheese)
  • Some butter
  • 3 slices of turkey bacon (optional)

Let’s make the guac first.  Cut open the avocados and scoop them out.  Beat, churn, crush, blend, however you can whip up (I got an early birthday present in the shape of a hand mixer – bougie!) the avocados.  Dice up your tomatoes and onion, and mix in.  Cut your lime in half, and squeeze a half into your guac…add a dash of salt to taste.  MIX IT UP and set aside.

(OPTIONAL – for my vegetarians out there) – Whip up a few slices of turkey bacon.  I chose to use Turkey bacon because it’s a healthier alternative to the ‘other’ stuff.  I was very skeptical about using turkey bacon because I think my alma mater’s omelette station never cooked the turkey bacon thoroughly (slimy and chewy) and I was permanently turn off.  But Fatima egged me on…and now I’m in love.  If skipping this step, move on to the below…

Preheat a skillet or pan on medium to low heat.  The goal is to let the grilled cheese get really melty and gooey when it’s cooking, so use some low heat!  While you’re waiting, butter up one of the sides of your slices of bread.  Once your skillet is ready…

Directions (To be done one after another, after another…under a min)

  1. Lay one buttered side of your slice of bread down on the skillet
  2. Add a slice of cheese on top
  3. Layer slices of bacon (if used)
  4. Add a slice of cheese
  5. Plop guacamole on top of the cheese
  6. Add a slice of cheese
  7. Top off with the second slice of bread (butter side up)

Cook each side of the sandwich to your liking.  When you eventually flip the sandwich to toast the other side, cap it off with a pot top.  This will trap the heat and melt the cheese.  Once you’re done, remove the sandwich from the pan or skillet and move to a plate.  Enjoy the left over guacamole with some chips and chow down!
