Start to Finish 25 mins
Tomato-Avocado Grilled Cheese
  • 1  ripe avocado, halved, seeded, and peeled
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
  • 8  slices  whole grain bread
  • 6  ounces  reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, sliced
  • 1  large  tomato, thinly sliced
  • 2  tablespoons  butter or margarine, softened

1. In a small bowl use a fork to mash together avocado, lemon juice, cumin, and salt until smooth. Stir in parsley. Set aside.

2. Top four of the bread slices with the cheese. Spread with the avocado mixture and top with tomato slices. Place the remaining bread slices on top of tomato slices. Spread top of the bread slices lightly with half of the butter.
