Avocado Grilled Cheese

Healthy-Grilled-Cheese-Final-Shot-1

When the bread slices are golden brown on the bottom, about 3–5 minutes, remove the sandwich halves and place them on a plate. Choose a side and spread the avocado mixture all over it. Delicious!

Then, move quickly and carefully and bring the sandwich halves together to avoid spilling (although don’t let that yummy filling go to waste!).

This avocado grilled cheese is great for a simple dinner — just pair with a side salad. You can even omit the chicken if you don’t have any on hand or want to keep this vegetarian, or even replace the chicken with turkey bacon.

Once you try this avocado grilled cheese, you’ll never go back!
