This Bacon & Avocado Grilled Cheese is the epitome of comfort food. Flavorful and delicious, this is the best grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever tasted!



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


  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.
