Sarah instructed that our entry must be a sandwich that contains bacon, tomato and a leafy green. I decided to use baby spinach as my leafy green. I also added some avocado slices for a little extra green. You can learn all about Fantastical Food Fight and how to join by going to Sarah's introduction post.
Layer upon layer of goodness in this sandwich. Start with a slice of cheese, add the bacon, layer on the spinach and then the tomatoes. Top this with some avocado and then another slice of cheese. Generously butter the outside of the bread and grill it to a golden brown.
This would make a perfect breakfast, you could even add an egg if you so chose. It would also be a marvelous lunch paired with some chips or fries or you could do as I and serve it up with a hearty bowl of Bean Soup that you make from your Easter Leftovers and call it dinner.
BLT Grilled Cheese with Avocado
For each Sandwich:
2 slices whole wheat bread
butter, room temperature
2 slices colby jack cheese
4-5 slices bacon, cooked crisp
small handful of baby spinach leaves
2 tomato slices
3-4 slices avocado
Place one slice of bread on a board and cover with a slice of cheese, bacon, spinach, tomato and avocado. Place the second slice of cheese on top. Cover with a second slice of bread buttered on the side facing up. Carefully, transfer the sandwich to a hot griddle, placing the buttered side of the sandwich down. Butter the slice of bread now facing up. Grill until bottom is golden brown. Flip so that the top buttered side is on the griddle and grill until that side is golden brown and the cheese is melted.
