When I was a kid, it was all about the Grilled Cheese. It is still a go-to comfort food, but now it has a big twist. A gourmet grilled cheese sandwich fit for a king. I give you our favorite Avocado Bacon Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich. A truly gourmet take on a true classic.
Did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? The Sunday Supper tastemakers are bringing you a whole recipe box of absolutely mouth-watering grilled cheese sandwiches. Be sure and check that list out at the bottom of the post, after you read about this amazing sandwich.
We’ve made this Avocado Bacon Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwich for years when I took two different grilled cheese recipes and basically combined them into one to create this mouthful of goodness.
It’s the Ultimate Grilled Cheese. I guess it’s OUR Ultimate Grilled Cheese.
I mean, how can it not be with all it’s ooey gooey deliciousness and added flavors. It’s like a giant flavor meld in your mouth, while still be that same classic comfort food we all know and love.
I love Grilled Cheese, don’t you?

And my kids love it too. I mean it’s gooey and melty like the grilled cheese they know and love, but it also has layer upon layer of added flavor.
Plus, I felt good because I was able to get some good veggies into them, but still make it taste good to them by adding something they all love.
