Grilled Avocado Sandwich

What you need: 

4 slices sandwich bread
vegan butter, as needed
whole grain mustard, to taste, optional
vegan mayo, to taste, optional
1 large ripe avocado, sliced thinly (I like Hass)

What you do: 

1. Spread the buttery spread on one side of all the bread slices. Place one slice, buttery side down, in a preheated frying pan over medium-low heat. If you want to add vegan mayo, mustard, or other "dressings" now is the time!
2. Otherwise, lay the avocado slices from one half of the avocado on the bread, covering well. Place another slice of bread, buttered side up, on top. Let cook 3-5 minutes, or until the bottom is golden to your liking.
3. Carefully flip the sandwich over and grill the other side 3-5 minutes. Repeat the above to make the second sandwich.
This is best when you have a really fatty, good avocado (like Hass). If you use a Florida or other "low fat" or "wet" avocado the flavor is still there but it isn't as good, in my opinion. This goes well with soup.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I couldn't believe this was so simple and vegan!

I spread half an avocado, sauteed some sliced portabella mushrooms and red onions in garlic, used vegan cheddar cheese, and Earth Balance to butter the bread.

I will be making this again, and for my non-veggie friends!!!

This recipe has a high tastiness-to-effort ratio.  :)  I didn't find it to be bland at all, thanks to a good avocado and plenty of spicy whole-grain mustard.  I may make another for breakfast tomorrow.

Simple, but good  :). Think it needs a little tweaking, but not sure what. Maybe some spices, or peppers? I'm gonna make it again though. Why is it called a "grilled sandwich" by the way?

I make this all the time - I can't imagine it being bland! But some people's taste buds are just different I suppose.

At the risk of stating the obvious, if you find it bland I would suggest taking into consideration the kind/quality of the bread/avocado you use, as well as the kind of mustard/mayo/whatever else you choose to try with it....it can make all the difference!

Am I missing something?

I'm with you on this one! I found it very bland. I added tomatoes and was completely bored with it. Sorry!

Am I missing something?  I made this exactly as submitted and I ended up throwing the other half away.  There was nothing special or intriguing or distinguishable about this at all, except it was bland, slimy and gross, completely awful textures combined.

Quit settling people.

Sorry I offended u hun, I was just saying for other readers that if you do not like these "completely awful textures" then maybe it's not the sandwich for you!

much love

I think the way you said it is the problem... This recipe has 5 stars and 6 pages worth of good reviews, so maybe you're the one "settling" LOL... Your comment seemed rather snobby IMO... Nobody is asking you to lie, but a little tact is always appreciated

I love these sandwiches...sometimes avocado quality may be an issue, Hass avos that are big & ripe are more 'buttery' than the small -stringy-ones...also toasting bread prior to making a "grilled-cheeseish" sandwhich can help the bread be more toasty
