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.

This recipe is relevant to my interests.

I just made it and it's fucking awesome. I used vegenaise, horseradish mustard, a fatty slice of tomato, some red onion and a tiny squeeze of lime juice. Delicious!


Ok so I was thinking... avocado, butter type spread, and bread I have those things, why not make it. I was not expecting it to be so good. I had mine with veggie noodle soup. Great new fast lunch or dinner. Thanks


Yumm yumm. I love ANYTHING with avocados!

I added tomato slices and a sprinkle of garlic powder! YUMMMM.

I also didnt have any butter so I sprayed the pan with cooking spray, worked perfectly. My new favorite quick-e sandwich!


Had this for lunch yesterday and it was good. I didn't have any mayo so didn't use that and I added some cooked sliced onions(I love onions) and it was great. I think I would taste amazing with some pico de gallo sauce on it. Thanks for the quick and east recipe.


What a hit!  My family loved this!  Thanks!


Very very yummy! I was looking for a simple way to use up an avocado, and I'd never had a grilled avo sammie before! I used whole wheat bread, stone ground brown mustard, tomato slices, and the avocado!


I sometimes eat avocado with thin slices of apple on bread, or sometimes just dip apple slices in scooped out avo. It is so yummy! I'll try this too. I'm sure i'll love it. ;)b


really good and easy.  i used veganaise and finely chopped red onions. mmmm


I love Grilled Vegan Cheese sandwiches, too,...but
I really love Avocado.  In Mexico it's called, "the poor man's butter".

First...grill/sautee some onion slices & slices of larger mushroom in Earth Balance in a fry pan 'til golden brown, drain, ...set aside.
I make my grilled sammiches like this:
Inside the bread (I like whole grain oat nut)- one slice has ground mustard-the kind with those tiny little ball bearings of mustard seed.
The other slice - Vegenaise mayo(a nice slathering of it!), then I start to STACK:

~2 slices Vegan/Veggie Cheddar Cheez, thinly sliced tomato, thinly sliced avocado, sauteed mushroom, sauteed onions & top with the other slice of bread. Spread a little Earth Balance on the top slice of bread, flip over and start to brown it in a barely oiled fry pan(that's been on medium heat for a bit that makes it hot enough to begin browning.  Flip over after some comfy seconds, then Earth Balance the other side.  Grill bread 'til it's a warm golden brown.  Place sammich on plate, carefully slice in 2, diagonally.  I like to dip this Goddesspiece in ketsup/catchup/catsup/ketchup.
It is a divine experience. OOooooooommmmmmm.
Namaste,  YumVegan


Yum! I just made these sandwiches on whole wheat and they're delicious. I love avocado so I just added some salt, and its great. Next time I'll probably have some tomato on it. Awesome recipe!
