This is a pretty basic sandwich that works well with our panini press. I like to add some sliced onion. But the bread needs to be special to make this sandwich better than ordinary. But as for quick and easy, you can't beat this recipe.
I really like this sandwich...I make it all the time now. I made it with shredded cheese the first time, but I now make it with a slice of medium cheddar (Sargento). I layer the avocado first, lightly salt, add tomato, lightly salt, then add cheese. I cover the pan while I'm cooking it and the cheese melts wonderfully. I imagine other types of cheese would work as well.
Not really a recipe, is it? But in warm weather anything that doesn't involve cooking catches my attention. Liked the tip to use shredded cheese and we used some on bottom before the tomato and some on top of the avocado (to hold the veg in place). Served with CL's spicy cilantro coleslaw.
Not impressed. Just didn't have enough flavor for my liking. Avocado drowned out everything else.
My mother and I had this for lunch. I thoroughly enjoyed it! It was easy to make and kept me filled for the afternoon. I will definitely make it again!
I loved this. I made it just as the recipe instructed and it came out perfectly. Regarding the 3 tablespoons of cheese, that's the same as a slice and a half of pre-packaged American (just for comparison sake). It's plenty. Anyhow, I loved the flavors of the sharp cheddar, creamy avocado and acidic tomato. It's hard to just stop at one sandwich. You can read my full review at Taking On Magazines: http://bit.ly/QUxWhe
My husband & I had these last night for dinner. We both enjoyed our sandwich very much; would definitely have again! No changes to recipe. Served these with the green bean feta salad, another C L recipe.
These weren't as amazing as we expected (avocado + grilled cheese?! sounds like heaven!). First of all, 3 tablespoons of cheese per sandwich is ludicrous. So I used more than that, but still the avocado way overpowered the cheese. It basically just tasted like a grilled avocado sandwich.
