  • 1 large avocado
  • salt and pepper
  • softened butter
  • 8 slices of bread (sourdough, multigrain, white-your choice-)
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced with seeds removed (Removing the seedy parts will keep the tomato from getting to watery)
  • 4 slices cheese (Provolone, havarti, white cheddar- your choice)


  1. Mash avocado, season with salt and pepper to taste.  (If you like it spicy, add a dash or two of your fave hot sauce.
  2. Heat large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Butter one side of each bread.  Add avocado to the non buttered side.  Place bread in skillet butter side down.
  4. Layer tomato and cheese over avocado and top with remaining bread, butter side up.
  5. Reduce heat to medium low if necessary.
  6. Use spatula to check bottom for doneness.  (toasted and golden brown.)
  7. Flip sandwich, pressing a bit with the spatula to help melt and spread the cheese.  Continue toasting until second side is golden brown.
