Grilled Avocado and Egg Melt Sandwich

It’s Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. It’s time for This Weeks Cravings and our theme this week is ultimate sandwiches. In other words, sandwiches you love, that you think are the ultimate deliciousness.

This sandwich is probably not our very favorite recipe but it is definitely one of our favorites. I’m just a bit of an avocado addict, and so many sandwiches we make include avocado. I usually make a Grilled Avocado and Egg Melt Sandwich in the mornings for breakfast, though I have been known to eat them for lunch as well. They are so good!

Grilled Avocado and Egg Melt Sandwich
  • 2 pcs. thick Italian bread (or whatever you have)
  • butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • 2 slices of cheese - I used Lorraine cheese, but I have also had this with swiss, provolone and brie and if you love cheese, any cheese will be delicious with it.
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. I hate writing out instructions for how to make a sandwich, as if you don't already know, but I'll do it anyway.
  2. Spread butter on one side of each piece of bread. Set aside.
  3. In a skillet, cook 2 eggs the way you like them - sunny side up, medium, over-hard, etc. (yes this does taste just as wonderful with scrambled eggs, so feel free).
  4. Remove the egg to a plate for just a moment.
  5. Turn your heat to medium.
  6. Take 1 piece of the buttered bread and place it buttered side down into the skillet. Top with the egg, sprinkle some salt and pepper, then place the avocado slices on top of the egg and then the cheese over the avocado slices. Place the other buttered bread on top with the butter side up.
  7. Grill on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until bread is golden.
  8. Enjoy!!

      Terra, I’m the same – you just can’t go wrong with avocado. I am slightly addicted lately. Good thing its the good kind of fat haha at least that’s what I’m telling myself to feel better about eating so much of it.
