Avocado & Bacon Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Pin It
I have always been a massive fan of cheese on toast but fairly recently discovered the phenomenon that is a grilled cheese sandwich- Our friends over the pond really do get somethings very right. Up until now I haven't really delved much further than some nice mature cheddar and a bit of chilli sauce between my bread but this weekend I took it up by about 5 notches with the addition of crispy bacon and avocado.

To make a grilled cheese sandwich you need a griddle pan ideally but a frying pan will work too. 2 slices of bread, 3/4 rashers of cooked dry cured, smoked pancetta bacon, 1/2 avocado sliced, mature cheddar & chilli sauce. Heat your pan on a high heat then either butter or brush oil onto the outsides (not the sides the fillings go in) Build up your sandwich and then place onto the pan. Cook for a few minutes on each side or until the cheese starts to ooze. Placing the butter or oil on your bread ensures you get that lovely golden & crispy outside.

Some days you really have to give in to your cravings and go all out.

  1. I can't believe you're just now discovering the brilliance of the grilled cheese!! It was a staple as a child growing up, conjuring up memories of cold winter days with mini gooey treats nestled by a bowl of steaming tomato soup, or summer days when our mothers sent us outside playing with dirty hands grasping our little cheese sandwiches. They also served as a hearty meal growing into adulthood when money was tight, more often than not. My favorite (now that I can afford the luxury of finer ingredients) is a pressed sandwich with delicious Roma tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and basil. Have fun and definitely try adding new ingredients to this "all-American dish"! Much love! Kala x
