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 can live off of these. My favorite way to make it is to mash the avocado with some lime, cilantro, salt and pepper; with a little bit of mustard and tomatoes, and only a little butter on the outside. Mmmm.

so good! I made it with vegan butter and veganaise on Daves Killer Bread. mmmm sooo yummy. I think next time I will try it on sourdough that sounds like it would be super good. I also used maters. I forgot mustard but I'm not sure it needs it?

wow, it sounds so simple but it's actually that good. I made mine with tomato, a few slices of salami, and spicy chipotle humus!

Delicious, quick, and easy!  Tonight, I used sourdough bread, Earth Balance margarine, mashed seasoned avocado, sliced grape tomatoes, salt, pepper, vegenaise, and spicy brown mustard.  These are a great option when you're super hungry and need something fast to throw together.

"mmm....m! Yummy goodness!"  "I could just eat 100 sandwiches just like this!" My six year old son's words.

I bought avocados at the store today just to try this recipe. I am so glad I did. I pretty much did as the recipe suggested - just added a spinkle of salt and buttered just one side of the bread. And Veganaise on the inside of course.

Oh, ok...my son, Jayden, just told me that this was the sandwich of his dreams.

I was thinking that some alfalfa sprouts would really add some crunch to this sandwich. Totally going to make it again. :)>>>

This was very good, I made it like a grilled cheese, except I used avocado and tomato instead of cheese, I also put vegan mayo and mustard on it too, which gave it some zip.  This would be awesome with some tomato soup  on the side.

This was so simple and a big hit! My stove top and I don't always get along so I used an electric griddle instead. I made mine with potato bread, veganaise, mustard, a sprinkling of nutritional yeast and ground flax seed, alfalfa sprouts, red onion slices and tomatoes. I wish I would have added some fresh ground black pepper. I did mashed and sliced avocado. It grilled up perfectly and tasted great. Thanks for sharing this simple recipe! It is sure to be a regular at my place from here on.  ;)b
