Avocado Grilled Cheese


Avocado lovers - look no further. A grilled cheese toastie oozing with salty, spinachy, avocadoy cheesy goodness!

Time: 20 mins Serves: 4 Difficulty: Easy

1 avocado ( we love New Zealand Avocados)

½ cup grated cheddar cheese (we love Mainland)

2 cups baby spinach (we love The Fresh Grower)

2 cloves garlic, minced

¼ cup extra virgin Avocado oil ( we love Olivado)

1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

8 slices toast bread

Butter to spread


  1. Place avocado flesh, cheddar cheese, spinach, garlic, salt, pepper and oil in a food processor. Process until well blended.  Stir in mozzarella.
  2. With a butter knife, spread butter on one side of each slice of bread. Place 4 slices, buttered side down, on work surface. Divide avocado mixture evenly on all slices. Top with remaining slices, buttered side up.
  3. Heat a large skillet over low heat. Add sandwiches and cover. Cook each side for 2-3 minutes each until golden brown and the cheese has just melted.
  4. Cut in half and serve immediately.
