I’ve been eating grilled cheese like this for about ten years now and often forget that most people don’t add extras like I do.

Eating becomes a challenge when you are taking care of a newborn. Because I am breastfeeding, I have to incorporate healthy foods throughout my day.
This has been my “go-to” when I only have a few minutes to cook but want to feel full and satisfied.

Here ‘s what you need:
2 slices of whole wheat bread
2 slices of cheddar cheese
1 avocado (sliced)
1 tomato (sliced)
1 teaspoon of butter

I buttered one side of each slice of bread and put the butter side down on a hot pan on medium low heat.

Each slice of bread gets a slice of cheese. One piece of bread gets the avocado and the other gets the tomato.

The two slices of bread are cooking simultaneously (open faced) because this grilled cheese is so thick that it’s too hard to flip.

Once the cheese has melted, I place one slice of bread onto the other so that I can enjoy all of the ingredients in every bite.

*Please note that this sandwich is also good cold and great for picnics.
 The ingredients do not take up a lot of room, can be easily assembled and you can usually find the ingredients in any country.
 You can use the exact same ingredients or you can use a fresh baguette and Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

 Mel and I have eaten this sandwich quite a bit when exploring a new city because it is easy to share with someone and inexpensive!
