Grilled Cheese, Tomato, and Avocado Sandwich Variations

Who doesn’t love a quick grilled cheese sandwich? Channel your inner child and let’s update this classic with some avocado! Here are two simple grilled cheese, tomato, and avocado sandwich variations

Grilled Cheese, Tomato, and Avocado Sandwich Variations

The first version is a sandwich of sliced tomato, sliced avocado and swiss cheese. The second version is sliced tomato, sliced avocado, pimiento cheese and some baby spinach leaves.Grilled Cheese, Tomato, and Avocado Sandwich VariationsThese would be wonderful on sourdough bread, but since I’m not much of a bread eater anymore, I used a simple gluten free sandwich bread which worked beautifully.

On the inside pieces of the bread, I spread on mayonnaise, then I built the sandwiches. On the first sandwich I added sliced tomato, sliced avocado and swiss cheese. On second sandwich I added sliced tomato, sliced avocado, pimiento cheese and some baby spinach leaves.

Make sure and use softened butter for the outside of the bread so that it spreads easily. You don’t want to tear the bread!

I always add a little pat of butter to my cast iron skillet, too. Grill the buttered side of the sandwich on a medium high heat. While that’s grilling, I carefully buttered the other side of the sandwich (the side that’s face up) while grilling.  Have your spatula handy and get ready to flip the sandwiches when the first side is lightly browned.

When both sides are browned and cheese is melted, remove to a plate and let rest before you attempt to cut the sandwich.

Here’s the spinach and pimiento cheese version:
