Guacamole Grilled Cheese

I can eat grilled cheese all day long. I’m also frequently craving guacamole. Stick those two together and I’m going into a food coma.

I like my cheese to be as melted as possible in my sandwich, so I normally take a lid from a large pot and place it over top of the skillet. The bread still gets golden and crunchy while the cheese is gooey–it makes for the perfect sandwich.

I know traditional guacamole is made with lime juice, but I was working with what I had in the kitchen. That being said, whenever I say to use lemon or lime juice, never use that artificial stuff from the store because it’s garbage and really not that much cheaper than real lemons.

Also, I decided to add the guacamole in after the sandwich was taken off the heat because avocado can get a “smoky” taste when it’s cooked.Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Ingredients

Makes 1 sandwich

  • 2 slices of your favourite bread, lightly buttered on one side (I just used regular sliced sandwich bread, nothing fancy)
  • 2 slices swiss cheese
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 2 tbsp. red onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 3 cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tsp. fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Salt to taste

Method

Place both swiss and cheddar cheese inside your slices of bread, buttered sides out. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat, and cook sandwich until golden brown on each side and cheese is melted; about 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, mash together avocado, red onion, lemon juice, tomatoes, cilantro, hot sauce and salt. Remove sandwich from pan and carefully open the sandwich to reveal melted cheese (I know this seems obvious but it will be very hot).

Spoon guacamole into the centre of the sandwich, close it back up, and enjoy with a side of salsa!Guacamole Grilled CheeseGuacamole Grilled Cheese
