    Julesong's Note:

    This is one of my favorite sandwiches! I usually use a wonderful white horseradish cheddar cheese rather than provolone, but it's kind of hard to find and the provolone is tasty, too. :) I've tried it on a lot of different breads, but I think that Oroweat's Carb Counting Multigrain Bread (when I'm being good) and Poulsbo Bread (when I'm bad) are my favorites for this sandwich.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 slices of your favorite French bread or 2 slices Italian bread or 2 slices potato bread or 2 slices whole grain bread (what-have-you)
    • 1/2 teaspoon mayonnaise (Best Foods, Hellmann's, or Vegenaise)
    • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 2 -3 drops balsamic vinegar, to taste
    • 1 slice provolone cheese
    • 1 slice prosciutto or 1 slice ham (an extremely thin slice) (optional)
    • 1/2 ripe avocado, pitted,peeled,and in slices
    • 4 slices ripe tomatoes (thin slices)
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste (I like a tri-color pepper mix)
    • 1 leaf romaine lettuce or 1/4 cup alfalfa sprout (I often leave this off)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If you like your sandwiches toasted, go ahead and toast your bread.
    2. 2
      Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, and balsamic together, then spread it thinly on one side of each slice of bread.
    3. 3
      Place cheese on a mayo/mustard side of a piece of bread; if including proscuitto, place it on the provolone.
    4. 4
      Spread the slices of avocado next, then the tomato, and season to taste with salt and pepper; then top with lettuce and the other slice of bread with the mayo/mustard side facing the lettuce.
    5. 5
      Note: using a fully ripe avocado is very important.

      I had this for brunch this morning and loved it. I left out the meat and lettuce, used extra tasty (sharp) cheddar cheese and wholegrain bread, frying it in a pan with a little butter. Thanks for a great recipe, Julesong.
