Tomato and Guacamole Grilled Cheese

This Tomato and Guacamole Grilled Cheese and I go back a long way. It’s my go-to lunch of choice on warmer days, nice and light yet the combination of tomatoes and grilled cheese with the guacamole, it’s tasty and filling. I thought I was brilliant when I originally came up with it.

I’ll still be the first to give myself a pat on the back for this one.

It’s also quick enough that a busy, frazzled mom can have a decent lunch that doesn’t involve scavenging through the fridge for leftover chicken nuggets from the night before.

Since the tomatoes are the meat of this sandwich, you want to make sure you get the best you can whether it’s straight from your garden or the store. I tend to prefer 2 medium-thick slices. Don’t go overboard with any of these ingredients or your bread will become too soggy.

Slather some guacamole on one side of your bread. Again, you can prepare your own, but I pick mine up at the store. Place your cheese on the other slice of bread. The guacamole and cheese act as your glue. Tasty glue.

Grill and eat. With chips. I like salt & vinegar, personally.

  1. OMG! We frequently make grilled cheese with tomatoes, but why on earth did we never think about guacamole?
