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.

  1. I never would have thought about putting guacamole in a grilled cheese sandwich but this looks and sounds amazing!

  2. Oh this looks crazy good and I just happen to be getting a CSA box full of avos…later today!

  3. I would have to make this sandwich first… there is never *leftover* guac in my house. 😉 Looks divine!

  4. If I wasn’t allergic to avocados, I would be ALL over this sandwich. I should make this for my husband. Yum!!!

  5. Ahh! I have an avocado that desperately needs to be used, and last night I was thinking, I wonder how it’d be in grilled cheese. So funny you did this! And now I know it’s worth it for me to try 🙂 Looks so good!

  6. Well, I just found my lunch.
    I am slightly obsessed with both guacamole AND grilled cheese sandwiches, so this is just about the most perfect thing ever!

  7. OH.

    maria, this couldn’t be more perfect…i can’t wait to find some good avocados here!

  8. We just posted a simple guacamole recipe on our blog today. There is still some guacamole in the fridge from yesterday’s photo-shoot of it. It’s meant to be! The kids are going to love this for lunch.

  9. damn, if only I could do cheese, I would be ALL over this! This amazing and love the addition of the guacamole.

  10. 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.

  11. Shut. The. Door! These look awesome. Basically a quesadilla with bread instead of tortillas. I need more reasons to eat guacamole, thank you!

  12. Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese? And one stuffed with guacamole to boot! I would happily eat this for lunch on a daily basis!

  13. Grilled cheese too? I made a breakfast grilled cheese sandwich yesterday. Now I can have grilled cheese for breakfast and lunch! YUM!
    Thank you!

  14. Oh heck yeah!! This is so going to be made for lunch this week! You’re such a genius! ps… thanks for the link! 🙂

  15. Oh yum! You know I have been trying to get Rachel to try being creative with guac. I wanted to put it on pizza but she declined. I’d totally try this – think I will. I bet once she took a bite Rachel would love this too =D

  16. Oh gosh, this sandwich looks awesome!! I adore grilled cheese and am always happy to find new variations. I can’t wait to try this, awesome idea!

  17. 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!

  18. Grilled cheese is like the best thing on earth!! but when you add guacamole… WOW, best thing in the universe!

  19. 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!

  20. Oooh yes. I love when there are extra people around to cook for, too. I’d love it even more if I was making this divine sandwich!!

  21. I’ve tried so many different varieties of grilled cheese. Why haven’t I thought of adding Avacado to it?! Amazing recipe. Can’t wait to try!

  22. 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.

  23. This sandwich looks amazing! I wish I wasn’t allergic to avocado! I just love guacamole! 🙁

  24. I know it’s a lot of fat, but I LOVE avocadoes and cheese together. SO.GOOD. This does sound like the best sandwich ever!

  25. 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.

  26. What a great idea – my kids love guacamole and grilled cheese, and together it must be super creamy tasting.

  27. 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.

  28. 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.

  29. What a great idea! I am not a huge fan of grilled cheese, but I love guacamole on just about anything. These look amazing!

  30. 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:)

  31. 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 🙂

  32. 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!

  33. Grilled cheese with guac sounds AMAZING!! I can’t believe I’ve never seen this combo before!

  34. Okay, when I surprise my surfer with this he is going to feel right at home and think that he’s back in Calli 😀 Luv it!

  35. I love the idea of this sandwich! As a vegetarian, I’m always on the lookout for new ways to use foods like avocados and cheese — two of my favorites! Thanks for sharing!

  36. This looks really good! I love avocado! Going to have to try this. I think I’m going to add some crumbled bacon too!

  37. 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!!

  38. 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.

  39. 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!

  40. Oh Wow! I love avocados but I love guacamole even more. What a fabulous idea for a grilled cheese sandwich! And the pictures… they make me want to reach into my computer and grab one. 🙂

  41. This looks delicious! What a great idea! I love guacamole and I’m sure it would be great addition to a grilled cheese sandwiches.

  42. This sandwich was amazing! I made it for lunch, and I have to admit, it’s better than a regular grilled cheese.

  43. I was introduced to grilled cheese/avocado at a local restaurant. I make it at home now, but use swiss cheese. . .YUMMO!

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

  45. 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!

  46. 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!

  49. This looks fabulous! I’m super new at this blogging thing but will have to make these with a big bowl of chili as soon as the weather turns cool. Thnaks!!!

  50. 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.

  51. 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!

  52. 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

  53. 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 🙂

  54. 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!

  55. 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!

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

  57. 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.

  58. 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.

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

    How does this not have more comments!! This website was the top result when I googled “guacamole grilled cheese”. I’m visiting this from in July 2020 because it was my latest quarantine creation and I wanted to see if it existed, if my idea was truly original. This article has been here for 8 years. Only I make my grilled cheeses with mayonnaise instead of butter! And I put some pickles inside too!
