If you’re anything like me, finding simple solutions for dinner is absolutely imperative. But the health nut in me just can’t do Hamburger Helper or boxed mac & cheese … not that there’s anything wrong with these, and don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they’re tasty. But I do make a concerted effort to get good foods into my family’s systems. So when I saw a recipe for a similar sandwich, I was sold.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- “Good” bread. We get ours from The Bread Basket and I swear it can make or break a sandwich. TOTALLY worth it.
- Avocados (got ours from Trader Joe’s)
- Cheese (sliced – I chose Munster)
- Pepperoni. I used Boar’s Head turkey pepperoni. Remember the health nut reference above?
So; get out a skillet/non-stick pan/whatever you want to call it and put a little spray in it. Or if you want this to be really yummy, put a little bit of butter in the pan/on the bread. Assemble your sandwich; sliced avocado, pepperoni and top it off with cheese and another piece of bread. Cook it like you would a regular grilled cheese.
The result is amazing. My kids all gave it “two thumbs up” – hard to come by around here. And (ahem) they were eating avocados. Score!
