    I learned a new technique for building grilled cheese sandwiches in my last Fine Cooking magazine.  It entails preparing the cheese in the traditional fashion, but then opening it up to add the remaining cold ingredients.  What a flavor bomb this makes!

    Not only do you get taste and texture variation, but temperture too. It brings a whole new element to boring, old grilled cheese.

    Cool, cold guacamole with acidic and biting lime juice, salty bacon and ooey gooey savory cheese will be a party in your mouth.  I used a hearty sourdough bread and highly recommend it.

    However, if you choose a different type, make sure it is hearty enough and can handle a lot of heavy ingredients without falling apart because Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwiches need a lot of support!

    To make a quick sandwich, buy store bought guacamole or use one of my homemade guacamole recipes. Bacon is optional, however if you omit, add extra salt to the guacamole to make up for it. Be careful…  these Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are about to become your new food obsession!

    You can also use your own blend of cheese or just one cheese. I use the trifecta of best cheese for grilled cheese sandwiches: sharp cheddar, provolone and gruyere.

    A big tip for making grilled cheese is to not be stingy with your butter. Butter is very important for making a nicely browned and crunchy outside to your sandwich! But watch closely, as it also has the tendency to burn.

    Keyword: grilled cheese sandwiches
    Servings: 2 large sandwiches
    Calories: 1439 kcal
    Ingredients
    • 4 slices sourdough bread , sliced 3/4 inch thick
    • 3 slices bacon , cooked and cut in half
    • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese , shredded
    • 4 ounces provolone cheese , shredded
    • 4 ounces Gruyere cheese , shredded
    • 1/2 cup guacamole
    • 2 lime wedges
    • 1 fresh tomato , sliced
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    Instructions
    1. Ready? Here we go... heat butter in a large skillet or saute pan over medium heat. Divide cheese evenly between two slices of bread and place into hot pan. Press down to sear and toast evenly. When browned, flip.
    2. If your cheese is having trouble melting because you have a seriously large sandwich, don't worry. Just heat the broiler, gently open up your sandwich and place under the broiler, cheesy side up until melted.
    3. Remove from broiler or saute pan and open up your grilled cheese sandwich. Divide all ingredients in half, bacon, guacamole and tomato, place on top of the cheese. Spritz the inside of each with a lime wedge. Put the bread slices back together and press down lightly to marry, but not enough to push your guacamole out the sides.
    4. Cut in half, grab a napkin and enjoy your Bacon and Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwiches!
