Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Jump to Recipe

Josh’s brother is visiting us from California and we are having a great time. Caleb sure loves having his uncle around and I love having another person to feed:)  The other day the guys wanted a snack so I whipped up a bowl of guacamole and made homemade baked tortilla chips. The guys were still hungry so I offered to make grilled cheese sandwiches. There was still some guacamole left so I asked them if they wanted a Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I don’t know if they were crazy about the idea, but agreed to try it. Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwiches sounded good to me:)

I used crusty white bread to make the sandwiches. I spread a thick layer of guacamole on each slice of bread and topped it with cheddar cheese. I buttered the outside of the bread and grilled the sandwiches to perfection. The guys loved the sandwiches and so did I-Josh shared his sandwich with me:)  I mean, really, what is not to love-bread, melted cheese, and creamy guacamole? The best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever had. Once you try a Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich, your life will be changed forever. So get going and make yourself a sandwich, you all need to experience the best grilled cheese on the planet.

To make the Guacamole:

For the Grilled Cheese:

  • 4 slices crusty white bread

  2. Heat a pan or griddle to medium-high heat. Spread desired amount of guacamole on both slices of bread then top with cheese.

  1. Since you like having another person to feed, I’m thinking I should come over after Josh’s brother leaves. I can hold the baby, you can make me one of these grilled cheeses…we all win!!

    I’m obsessed with that bread. It looks amazing.

  2. I just made this and it’s fabulous — the only substitution I used was fresh sourdough bread because it’s what I had on hand and everything still tasted great!

  3. What a great idea! I’ll be making mine with Cabot Seriously Sharp Cheddar (from Vermont, like me!) and avocados from our family farm in California! The Fuerte avocados are in season now…they’ll be scrumptious in this sandwich!

  4. I never imagine we can use Guacamole in a sandwich, we eat it as a dip, but never inside a bread. And it’s strange because here in my country avocado sandwish is very common, in fact, is one of my favorites. There is a sandwish we caled “Triple” and is made with one slice of bread, mashed avocado, bread, egg, bread, tomato and bread.

  5. Ohhhhhhhh. Can I come eat at your house? 🙂 Between this sandwich, which is a combination I never would have thought of, and the polenta dish, which I am planning to try next week, wow. Thank you for such a lovely and inspiring blog. And congratulations again on your little one.

  6. I love this idea! Like you, I’m always looking for new ways to dress up the boring old Grilled Cheese. My kids love guac, so I am sure this will be a hit with them. Another one that has really worked for us is Grilled Cheese and Jelly. Brighter, tarter flavors of Jelly work best with this. It’s kind of like a cheese platter for kids. And adults.

  7. Yum! I’ve been putting avocado and bacon on our grilled cheese the last couple weeks – it’s so good. But guacamole would add even more flavor! I love tasty, easy dinners.

  8. I’m not much of a plain grilled cheese person, always have to add something and THIS sounds beyond delicious!!! I will be trying at my house:)

  9. Oh man, this looks amazing! I just posted about an egg salad I made with guacamole. Basically, I could eat guac with everything. Not to mention, cheese 🙂

  10. Yes, it’s official, guacamole makes everything better! I have a hard time with plain old grilled cheese – too one-note for me. This is genius Maria!

  11. Guacamole and grilled cheese are my two most favorite comfort foods! What a wonderful and unique idea to combine them!! As soon as I saw your post, I knew I had to make it as soon as possible! I made it this past weekend and it was absolutely fantastic and one of my new favorites!!

  13. Is it me or does the image of the sandwich have a bread, cheese, guac, cheese, bread arrangement? It looks that way to me. The instructions read bread, quac, cheese quac, bread order. Not that it matters all that much, i just wanted to be clear! 🙂 Thanks.

  14. Looks wonderful and I’m printing it today so I may pick up all ingredients! Do you know how I may convert these ingredients for nutrition info? My daughter and I are seeing a nutritionist and find it necessary to get a caloric count on the servings. Thanks for the inspiration!

  15. I was introduced to Grilled Cheese/Avocado at a local restaurant. I now make these at home, but with Swiss cheese. . .YUMMO!

  16. I made these tonight with Wholly Guacamole instead of making my own. I needed an easy dinner and this was so good and so easy. You are brilliant!

  17. Made this for dinner tonight along with your cilantro lime quinoa and some black beans. It was so, so good!! I used a whole grain crusty bread from the grocery store bakery, plus Boar’s Head cheddar cheese. Thank you for the great recipe!

  21. I just made this but made it into a quesadilla instead because I had no bread. Basically did the guacamole & cheddar on a whole wheat tortilla. Cooked with light olive oil cooking spray. It was super delicious and easy.

  22. I finally made this today after dreaming about this sandwich all week while our avocados ripened. I mmm’d my way through each and every bite! It totally lived up to my every expectation and more and is now my new favorite sandwich. Thank you so much for sharing!

  23. this recipe is amazing, especially that I’m the kind of person that can’t stand to eat the same food twice in a month. thanks

  24. best guac ive ever made! my mother in law couldn’t stop eating it! I added a few dashes of chipotle pepper salt. tasted so so good on the grilled cheese sandwich also! will certainly be making this again 🙂

  25. This might have already been suggested (I didn’t read all 200 comments) but just in case- try adding sliced smoked turkey breast & bacon. The different textures and flavors complement each other wonderfully and make for a truly awesome grilled cheese!

  26. Fantastic! I used a chipotle gouda instead of cheddar, and my own guac recipe (because I’m a bit if a guac- fanatic). Melty, gooey cheese with guacamole; seriously in heaven. My husband thinks I should add bacon next time. (He always wants to add bacon.) yes!

  28. This is a fantastic sandwich. 5 * (* bad / ***** excellent).
    Maria and Josh – thanks for your great receipts!!!

  29. This guacamole grilled cheese sandwich really sounds interesting. Love this sauce for tacos but have never tried it for sandwiches. This is definitely going to be a must try. I am also quite curious as to how this would taste with plain avocados. Thank you for sharing this post.

  30. I love avocado on a grilled cheese sandwich. I will either roast avocados in the oven or stove top, and then add them. I add fresh cilantro. Being a vegetarian I add different grilled veggies and stuff to my grilled cheese. Add sundried tomatoes too.

  31. This is such a great sandwich!! I’ve made it a few times for family and they all love it! Perfect, light summer meal!

  32. awesome. I adoooore grilled cheese with guacamole on the side, not in between lol. and I love avocado with pesto pasta, today making mac & cheese with avocado for the first time! your blog is awesome. you like a lot of the same things we do xD
