Turkey, Avo, Tomato Grilled Cheese

I love grilled cheese sandwiches. The toasty, buttered bread and the gooey cheese are soooooo good! I could eat multiple grilled cheese sandwiches every single day, if I didn't care about being healthy.

But sometimes you've just gotta have a grilled cheese. So to make it a bit more filling and healthy, I cut back on the cheese and bulked it up with some turkey, avocado and sliced tomatoes. And I added a bit of a kick by using sourdough chile bread from Fresh and Easy. Yummy!

2 slices sourdough chile bread
turkey lunch meat
sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 avocado, sliced
1/2 tomato, sliced


Heat a pan on the stove over medium low heat.

Lightly butter one side of each slice of bread.

Slice 4 small slices of cheese.

Place one piece of bread on the hot pan, buttered side down, and top with 2 slices of cheese. Add a few slices of turkey, followed by the tomato and avocado slices, then topped with the remaining 2 slices of cheese. Set the 2nd slice of bread on top of the sandwich, buttered side up and gently press down for 2-3 seconds.

Grill your sandwich on medium low heat for a few minutes (about 3-4 minutes) until the bread is golden and toasty, and the bottom layer of cheese is soft and slightly melty.

Using a wide spatula, gently flip your sandwich over, cooking until the bread is golden and toasty.
