Avocado-Tomato Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Total Time

I LOVE avocados, especially the black Haas avocados. They're creamy and have such a "buttery" taste, and yet are cholesterol-free. This recipe makes a really delicious sandwich. When I make it for the kids, I eliminate the cumin, but add it when I'm making a sandwich for myself -- I like cumin's very mild spicy flavor that has a hint of caraway in it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, mash together avocado, lemon juice, cumin and salt until smooth. Stir in parsley and set aside.
  2. Top four of the bread slices with cheese; spread with avocado mixture and top with tomato slices. Add the four remaining bread slices on top. Using 1 tablespoon of the softened butter, spread some on the top of each sandwich.
  3. Heat a large nonstick griddle or 12-inch skillet, over medium-high heat. Add sandwiches, buttered sides down. Carefully spread the remaining softened butter over the top of each sandwich.
  4. Cook 4-6 minutes or until toasted, turning once.

Delicious sandwich! I used cheddar cheese and loved the creaminess the avocado added, the zing the lemon added and the sweetness the tomato added. I think I would just skip the cumin next time. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Delicious sandwich! I love grilled cheese sandwich but the avocado - tomato combo really gilded the lily. I made a few subs, cilantro instead of parsley, lime instead of lemon, I added whole cumin seeds and a little chopped jalapeno. Lovely combination of textures and flavors. Thanks for posting, I will make this often! made and reviewed for the Spain/Portugal Forum, July 2012
