This is honestly the BEST grilled cheese ever!!

  • Buttery, crispy-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside sourdough bread
  • 4 slices of gooey, melty, colby jack cheese
  • 3 slices of center-cut bacon

This is the perfect amount of gooey cheesy goodness to crispy carb ratio.

We make this all the time on weekends. It’s the perfect meal for brunch! Sometimes I’ll even add a scrambled egg. To DIE for!!

Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 slices colby jack cheese
  • 3 slices bacon
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions:

  1. Cut avocado in half, scoop out the flesh, and cut into slices.
  2. Layer one slice of bread with 2 slices of cheese, avocado slices, bacon, remaining 2 slices of cheese, and top with remaining slice of bread.
  3. Melt half the butter in a skillet over medium to medium-high heat. When butter is melted and starts to foam, carefully place sandwich into the skillet. Cook for 2-4 minutes until bottom is golden brown and toasted. Carefully flip over, add remaining butter and cook for an additional 1-3 minutes until toasted. Serve warm and enjoy!!

A perfectly ripe avocado should give a little when pressed, but not be too mushy.
