Creamy California style grilled cheese made with mashed avocado, tomato and pepper jack cheese.


  • 1 ripe avocado mashed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 4 slices California style multigrain bread
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 medium tomato sliced about 6 slices
  • 1/4 cup pepper jack cheese shredded


  1. Season avocado with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. Butter each slice of bread and place butter side down in a large skillet. Spread mayonnaise on each unbuttered side of bread. This will make the grilled cheese nice and creamy.
  3. Add the avocado, tomato and pepper jack cheese on two slices of bread.
  4. Fold the sandwiches together and cook on medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. If they are getting brown and the cheese has not melted turn the heat down or cover the pan.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy!
