Tag Archives: love at first bite

The first time I made my Avocado Bacon Grilled Cheese for my husband it was love at first bite.  Between bites he said, “Where has this been all my life?”

Several days ago as I was working on my meal plan for the week,  I told him that I would be making his favorite sandwich this weekend.  He was super excited and has been looking forward to it all week.  I’m not going to lie, I’ve been looking forward to it too! This sandwich is so scrumptiously delicious I wish I could eat it every day.

I cooked pancakes and bacon for breakfast this morning, so I cooked a few extra slices to use later for the sandwiches.  I love eating bacon, but despise actually cooking it.  That’s probably the reason we don’t eat these sandwiches more often.

When it came time to cook up the sandwiches, my little sous chef was eager to help.  Kora likes any excuse to be able to use a knife (“I’ll be carefully Mom”), so she buttered the bread for me. Then she spotted the cut up avocado and decided she needed a little snack!

I like my grilled cheese sandwiches extra cheesy, so I used two slices of cheese – one slice of cheddar and one slice of Monterrey Jack.  I top the cheese with sliced bacon and avocado and then cook it on a griddle until it’s nice and golden and melty.

And then comes the best part – sinking your teeth into that crunchy bacon, buttery avocado, and gooey cheese! The clouds part and angels sing! Such deliciousness!

Go and make yourself this yummy sandwich and you too will be asking yourself, “Where has this been all my life?”
