The REAL Californian Grilled Cheese

Recipes

Ingredients:

– 8 (1/2-inch thick) slices rustic grainy bread cut on the diagonal to make slightly larger – 2 tablespoons California butter softened – 1 ripe avocado peeled, pitted, and coarsely mashed – 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt – 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper – 1/4 cup diced tomato – 2 teaspoons minced roasted garlic – 4-6 ounces farmstead or sharp California Cheddar cheese thinly sliced

Directions:

Butter one side of each bread slice and place buttered side down on a cutting board. Stir together avocado, salt and lemon pepper in a small bowl. Top half the bread with avocado, tomato, garlic and cheese; close sandwiches. Cook in a large skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes on each side or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, tenting with foil after turning.

Makes 4 servings.
