Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 12 Minutes


8 bacon slices
2 large tomatoes, each cut into 4 slices
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup Ranch dressing
8 slices NATURE'S OWN Whitewheat Bread
4 (1-ounce) provolone cheese slices
4 (1-ounce) sharp Cheddar cheese slices
1 large avocado, cut into 8 slices
Vegetable cooking spray


Prepare bacon according to package directions; drain and set aside.

Sprinkle tomato slices evenly with salt and pepper.

Spread 1/2 tablespoon dressing on 1 side of each bread slice. Top each dressing-coated side of 4 bread slices with 1 provolone slice; top each remaining 4 bread slices with 1 Cheddar slice. Top each provolone slice with 2 tomato slices, 2 bacon slices, and 2 avocado slices.

Cook bread slices, cheese side up, on a hot nonstick electric griddle at 325° or in a hot nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat 4 to 7 minutes or until browned.

Press together Cheddar cheese-topped bread slices and provolone-topped bread slices. Cut in half diagonally, and serve immediately.
