Grilled Two Cheese Avocado Sammie

When Kenya see's avocado or cheese in his school lunch, he immediately gets excited. There's nothing like these 2 nutritious creamy foods melted between crusty bread to keep a kid sated all day long. If you're looking for a school lunch recipe, I would give this idea a shot!

Grilled Two Cheese Avocado Sammie (Serves 4)

Prep Time: 1 mins Cook Time: 4 mins

nut free


  • 8 Slices Sourdough Bread
  • 4 Slices cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 Slices Gruyere or Provolone Cheese
  • 4 Tbsp butter, softened


1. Lightly spread one side of all bread slices with butter.
2. Place one slice of bread on a plate, butterside down, and cover with 1 slice of cheddar, half of the avocado slices ( I mash them down a bit) and finally, a slice of gruyere or provolone cheese.
3. Top with the remaining piece of bread, butterside up.
4. Preheat a panini maker or saute pan over medium heat and cook the sandwiches until the bread is golden and the cheese is melted, about 4 minutes.
5. Cut and serve.

    I'm confused by this as a lunch recipe. Do you prepare this in the morning and then put in his lunch box to eat cold? Sounds yummy, but not sure how it would hold up in a refrigerator for 3 hours. Thanks.

      Yes I do, Kenya eats his lunch at room temperature. I put a cold ice pack in it as well.

    Does it bother him if the avocado oxidizes and is a bit brown? I suppose tossing it with a bit of lemon juice would help that issue, but not sure if it would change the flavour too much.

    I just tried one - used shredded cheddar cheese & onion with the avocado. It was yummy!
