Gourmet grilled cheese with bacon tomato and avocadoThis sandwich probably beats all the grilled cheese I've ever made. It's kinda funny because a year ago, I didn't really like avocado; it just wasn't one of my favorite foods at all. This summer it's like my tastes have reawakened, and I can't get enough of it.

Of course, I couldn't have made this grilled cheese without my handy Avocado Slicer from Good Cook. Good Cook Avocado SlicerThis slicer made pitting and slicing the avocados an easy peasy process.

  1. This looks incredible. The only thing I would do differently is add a dash or two of garlic powder to the avocado! Can’t wait to try this!!
