Avocado Grilled Cheese


Happy Friday y'all!! Thought I would share a quick recipe today for a yummy grilled cheese :) but this isn't just any grilled cheese...this is an avocado grilled cream cheese...with a secret ingredient...shhh.

What you will need:
bread
butter
mayo (yes that is what I said)
cheddar cheese
cream cheese
avocado
black pepper and herb of choice

What's always the first step when making a grilled cheese? Besiiiides turning on the burner...butter, duh. Well when you're spreading the butter on your bread I want you to include about a teaspoon of mayo (for each slice)...or more if you want...trust me. I have to give credit to Terry Taylor for this step..would have never thought to include mayo on the OUTside of my grilled cheese but it's pure genius! It does something to the bread, I can't explain it, but it's right ;)

Next, slice up your cheddar cheese, cream cheese and avocado. Less is not more in this situation but that's just my opinion. Layer it all on and add some black pepper to taste and your herb of choice. I think I used dried chives this time but fresh basil would be divine!

Take the chapstick put it on your lips. Wait..what? 

Put the sammach in the skillet and grill to perfection. Enjoy!


I hope y'all enjoy this recipe as much as I did! Would you believe I made this and then thought, "Ooh! Food photo shoot!" Went to all the trouble of photographing this little baby before I even took the first bite! What if it had been a fluke?? lol! But it wasn't... took me about .25 seconds to devour. Yum-E.
