Good Cook ProFreshionals DisclosureThere is no other comfort food quite like a really good grilled cheese, and this grilled cheese is no exception with its tantalizing tastes of melted Cheddar, American, bacon, freshly sliced tomato, and avocado. 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. The hook on the end of the handle helps you to remove the avocado pit. Removing the pit from the avocadoThen you just run the slicer down the skin of the avocado through the meat of the fruit, and you have a sliced avocado. Slicing up the avocado with the Good Cook Avocado SlicerThe tool is quite sturdy and something we’ll probably be using quite a bit in our kitchen, as we’re always eating avocado on our sandwiches or making guacamole.

So, how do you make this delicious grilled cheese? See below for a printable recipe. You’ll want to cook the bacon beforehand; we like to bake ours. Then, of course, get your tomatoes and avocados ready to go. Good Cook Avocado Slicer with Tomatoes and AvocadoPutting this sandwich together is super easy, and you start with two slices of sourdough bread. Butter the outsides; I used to butter the insides too on all my grilled cheese, but I don’t do that anymore…. trying to be a bit more health-conscious. Fire up the griddle, and place one slice of bread on the griddle. Add a few slices of Cheddar Cheese, then tomato, avocado, and a slice of American Cheese. Sandwiching the tomato and avocado between the two cheeses ensures that everything will be wrapped together in ooey, gooey goodness. Finally, add a few slices of bacon, already cooked.

  1. I had guacamole for the first time ever this past May. It was delicious. This recipe sounds and looks wonderful. I will have to try it. Thanks for sharing. I would love the citrus tools. I have been cooking with more lemon and orange peel so this would be a great addition to my kitchen arsenal! :)

  2. I also love BLAT (Bacon, lettuce, avocado and bacon) but I have never thought of grilling it we serve it toasted with mayo – still sounds great to me..

  3. That does look delicious! I love making chicken salad with avocado. And avocado, cooca powder, and a bit of sweetener makes a great pudding.

  4. avocado is wonderful and we add it to almost any sandwich we have made. hamburgers, chicken, and even egg salad. We add it to salads and of course love guacamole.

  6. 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!!
