Grilled Avocado Sandwich

No more burning the toast while you wait for the cheese to melt. Avocado is rich and creamy, and possibly my new favorite cheese substitute.

When I was in grade school, I lived right by my school and would often choose to come home for a hot homemade lunch instead of eating a meal at the cafeteria.  My favorite lunches included: Campbell’s Cream of Chicken Soup (mixed with milk) served with buttered toast, and Campbell’s Tomato Soup (also mixed with milk) served with a grilled cheese sandwich.

When eating cream of chicken soup, I would usually rip up the toast into bite-sized pieces and drop them into the soup–like crackers.  The toast would soften a little on the edges and almost turn into a dumpling of sorts.

With grilled cheese and tomato soup, the soup was more of a dipping sauce for the cheese sandwich.  I guess I must like soggy toast or something, but I sure have missed eating tomato soup and grilled cheese–especially since it is such a fast and easy meal to prepare.

Growing up, I never knew the tomato soup’s instructions were to mix the condensed soup with water–milk was the home standard. Now, I have learned to enjoy the soup mixed with a can of water instead of milk.   I have never tried it with non-dairy milk substitute.  Has anybody?  How does it taste?

I think that using an avocado was awesome!  It didn’t have any artificial flavor tastes.  It was just smooth, creamy avocado toast kicked up a notch.  Mooove over cheese.  I’m going to start eating more tomato soup and grilled avocado sandwiches.

Grilled Avocado Sandwich

Ripe avocado

Bread

Dairy-free butter or spread, coconut oil, or mayonnaise

Salt and Pepper

Peel, pit and mash avocado in a bowl.  Salt and pepper the avocado (remember cheese is a little salty, so don’t under-salt the avocado). Butter the outsides of the bread.  Spread the avocado mixture in between the two slices of bread with the butter on the outside .

Toast in a pan on the stove top until toasted and lightly browned.

Enjoy the sandwich by itself or dip it in tomato soup.

  1. I’ll have to try this! I love the combination of tomato soup and grilled cheese and have been playing around with substitutes. I usually make my soup with water, but I have added just a bit (maybe 1/4 cup or less?) of almond milk and it tastes good. I don’t think I’d want to do more or the nuttiness when warmed up would be too strong. For the sandwich part, I often slather miracle whip, minced garlic, and a sprinkle of nutritional yeast on the bread to make my cheese taste, and sometimes added a dash of hot sauce or some basil leaves. It’s not very melty or creamy but tastes good (it’s really the pan-fried part with the salty tang that wins me over).
