Grilled cheeses are pretty darn awesome. But I’m not talking about the processed yellow cheese sandwiches of your youth. This Avocado Grilled Cheese is a totally delicious, grown-up version.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • ⅓ cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 6 chicken tenders, cooked and shredded
  • 3 ounces shaved Pecorino Romano
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 4 slices gluten-free or sprouted wheat berry bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl add avocados, garlic and lemon juice, mixing until well combined.
  3. Add butter to skillet and once melted, add bread.
  4. Build sandwich in skillet: on one side add feta cheese and chicken, on other side, add shaved pecorino and tomatoes.
  5. Remove each sandwich half to a plate after 3–5 minutes, once bread is golden brown on bottom.
  6. Place avocado spread on one side of grilled cheese. Carefully and quickly bring two sandwich halves together to form your grilled cheese.


This avocado grilled cheese is great for a simple dinner — just pair with a side salad. You can even omit the chicken if you don’t have any on hand or want to keep this vegetarian, or even replace the chicken with turkey bacon.
