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.

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!

I have had this in my recipe box for a while. I tried it today with whole grain bread, avocado, thin tomato, and mustard. It was good except that next time I won't butter up the outside of the bread. It wasn't necessary for me, and I would prefer it without all of that margarine taste. Other than that, very good, will make again!

I made this recipe for my mom and I for lunch and it was great. I didn't have any mustard or vegan mayo so I used hummus which turned out really well and I liked that it added protein. I also added tomato slices.

I eat one similiar to this, but I just put the bread in the toaster, then mash the avocado on it and add red onion and bean sprouts

Yummmmmmm. I've been hungry for this for a while now. I used wheat bread, some veganaise, and horseradish mustard. My husband had regular mustard. So good!

I've had a version of this that included tomato slices -  super tasty!

Me too. Very good. Next time, I think I'll had some green or red peppers.

Awesome, it was so simple, but better than any grilled cheese sandwich I've had before. And believe me before I went vegan, I was a huge cheese freak. I also add some sun-dried tomatoes sometimes.
