Introduction: Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Eating grilled cheese sandwiches always reminds me of my childhood, so they have become a comfort food in my kitchen.  I have also recently developed a love for avocados, so I thought I would combine the two. I did and it made for the best grilled cheese sandwich I have ever had in my life. 

Step 1: Ingredients

To start off, you need to gather the ingredients:

-two slices of bread
-two slices of cheese
-one avocado

Step 2: Preparing the Avocado

1. Cut the avocado in half with a knife
2. Using a spoon, scoop out the fruit from the outer skin. 
3. Put aside for later storage the side with the pit.
4. Take the other side and slice it into small slices. (Notice in the picture, I made about six slices)

Step 3: Preparing the Bread

1. Measure out about 1 tablespoon of butter. This should be just enough to lightly coat both pieces of bread.
2. Spread 1/2 tablespoon on one side of one piece of bread.
3. Repeat previous step on the other piece of bread. 

Step 4: Preparing the Cooking Surface

1. Spray a light coat of cooking spray on the frying pan.
2. Turn the stove to medium heat. (This will allow the cheese to melt without burning the bread.)

Step 5: Putting It All Together

1. Place one slice of bread in the middle of the frying pan, buttered side facing down.
2. Place one slice of cheese on top of bread.
3. Arrange avocado slices across the bread surface.
4. Place the other slice of cheese on top of the avocado slices.
5. Place the other slice of bread on top, buttered side facing up. 

Step 6: Cooking the Sandwich

1. Leave the sandwich as is for about 30 seconds.
2. Flip the sandwich so the other side is exposed to the heat.
3. Leave for about 30 seconds.
4. Continue this process of flipping back and forth until the bread is a nice golden-brown, like shown in the picture. 
5. Double check that the cheese has adequately melted before removing from heat. 
6. Once finished, cut the sandwich open if you'd like and enjoy!
