    gailanng's Note:

    Almost any kind of cheese works well. Notice the technique of leaving it open-faced and covered with a lid until the cheese melts. Adapted from "Cheap. Fast. Good!" by Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 tablespoon butter
    • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard (regular or grainy)
    • 4 slices white bread or 4 slices whole wheat bread
    • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise
    • 4 slices cheese (such as 2 slices sharp Cheddar cheese and 2 slices Swiss)
    • 4 thin slices tomatoes
    • 6 thin slices avocados

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Melt butter in a 12-inch skillet over low heat.
    2. 2
      While butter melts, spread 1 teaspoon mustard on each of 2 slices of the bread. Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise on each of the 2 remaining slices of bread. Place 2 slices of cheese on each of 2 slices of the bread.
    3. 3
      Place the cheese-topped bread, cheese side up, in the skillet. Cover the skillet and cook until the bread is golden brown on the bottom and the cheese is just beginning to melt, 2 to 3 minutes.
    4. 4
      Arrange 2 slices of tomato and 3 slices of avocado on top of the cheese, and place another piece of bread on each sandwich. Turn the sandwiches over, pressing each with a spatula to keep it together. Cook, uncovered, until the second side is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Continue to press sandwiches with a spatula while cooking.
    5. 5
      Transfer sandwiches to plates, cut in half and serve.
