bacon guacamole grilled cheese.




I love how versatile grilled cheese is. I know that's a strange statement but think about it... You can use different kinds of bread- white, wheat, sourdough, and even cauliflower!
You can use a variety of cheeses along with so many different add-ins and it pretty much always turns out delicious.

Gant and I found our new favorite go-to grilled cheese.  It is loaded with bacon, gaucamole, and plenty of cheese- all between delightful, buttery bread. It takes a bit more time to make 
than a normal grilled cheese but worth every ounce of effort. Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

bacon guacamole grilled cheese.

Ingredients (per sandwich)

2 slices bread (I used flax & fiber)
2-3 slices bacon 
2-3 Tbsp Guacamole
1-2 Tbsp Butter, softened
2-3 slices of your favorite cheese

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare baking sheet with foil. 
  2. On top of foil, weave your bacon like this: http://diyready.com/how-to-make-a-bacon-weave-sandwich/. They used 3 slices, I only used 2 slices. Go with your heart's desire though ;)
  3. Cook bacon in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until however done you like it.
  4. Make your guacamole. I used 2 avocados and a seasoning packet. You won't need all the guacamole. With the extras, make more sandwiches tomorrow or eat it with chips or veggies. Refrigerate guac until ready to use.
  5. Butter one side of each piece of bread.
  6. Turn burner onto medium heat and place a nonstick skillet on it. 
  7. Assemble sandwiches. Put bread, butter side down, onto skillet. Top with your favorite cheese. Grant likes pepper jack and havarti and I like colby jack and havarti. 
  8. Top with bacon and close sandwich by putting the last piece of bread butter side up. Do not put gauc on yet. 
  9. Cook sandwich for a few minutes on each side, until it is grilled to your desired perfection. 
  10. Remove sandwich from skillet. Open sandwich, bacon side up. Carefully layer guacamole on inside of the sandwich. 
  11. Cut sandwich as desired & devour!
