Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Follow Me on Pinterest

A guacamole grilled cheese sandwich has been on my to try list for a while now and since I was making the bacon guacamole on the weekend I figured I would just pick up double the ingredients and make both. The basic idea behind this grilled cheese is quite simple and it started out with just adding guacamole to a grilled cheese but with the success of combining salty bacon-y magnificence with cool and creamy guacamole I could not resist adding a few slices of bacon to the sandwich. I also had some leftover corn tortilla chips from dipping on the weekend so I decided to crumble a few of them and add them to the sandwich for texture.

Bacon Guacamole Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Like all grilled cheese sandwiches this one is pretty easy to make though you want to try to remember to pull the guacamole out of the fridge early so that it can come up to room temperature before adding it to the sandwich. Having all of the ingredients of the sandwich at room temperature is going to help ensure that the cheese melts into ooey gooey goodness so pull the cheese and butter out of the fridge at the same time as the guacamole. The only real problem with this guacamole grilled cheese sandwich is that it can be a bit messy to eat but I was not really thinking about that as I wolfed mine down. This sandwich is certainly one amazing way to enjoy any leftover guacamole and it is even worth making a fresh batch of guacamole just to make some grilled cheese!

Can you please open up a grilled cheese sandwich shop in Toronto? I would visit it all the time ;)

Phoebe and Cara, the Quarter-Life Cooks said...

Even though it seems decadent, there's really no better foil for melted cheese than avocado--I agree. But adding bacon?! Damn! Can't wait to try.

Stu_Can_Sam said...

This is a great variant of the Grilled Cheese... My first post and I love the your site. Keep the tastey things coming!!!

Just wanted to point out that, in your written instructions, you forgot to put the bacon on the sandwich.

I'm going to have to try this and picky husband can have one with just cheese and bacon. :-)

I love pesto grilled cheese but I never thought about guacamole. I will really have to try this!

zasa42 said...

How about adding a tomato in there too!

Kevin said...

zasa42: There is already some tomato in the guacamole but adding some big fat juicy slices of tomato to the sandwich would also be good!

Red lips, Black hair said...

Why oh WHY did I look?? I'm vegetarian and this shouldn't look so appetizing to me! *Whimpers*

Jessica said...

This looks amazing. I'm going to save this recipe to make. Do you know how many calories are in a half? I figured I will eat only half the sandwich.

Really good! I've just made this sandwich for dinner and I loved it! I totally recommend it!

Maria said...

I saw this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try yesterday but I added and subtracted a couple of ingredients. I used 3 strips of bacon, added thin sliced fresh tomatoes and used pepper jack cheese. Made 6 of the sandwiches and there wasn't a crumb left!! Fantastic fast lunch or supper idea. Thanks!

JustMargo said...

WOW. We just had this for dinner! Thanks again. You "cooked" for us last night too! This relationship is working out just fine! =)

Aurora said...

Made it with all of the flavors, but lighter- no butter, turkey bacon, only a thin slice of cheddar cheese. So fantastic!

marcus said...

Lighter? no bacon? Less cheese ? why bother ?
Stupid lite crap!!!

Just made this and it is the best sandwich I've ever eaten. Love avacados! This was perfect.

Made this a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I used veggie bacon instead, and it worked just as well. Such a delicious combination.

Anonymous said...

I just made this for myself and my sister for lunch and we loved it! I used french bread instead of sour dough because that's what I had at home and it was still delish! Thanks for posting this recipe up it was sooo good!

Just made this sandwich for myself and it was soo so good! I'll have to make it for my husband sometime without the bacon (cause he is a vegetarian), I'm sure it'll still be very good.

I made this tonight for my BF and I. I did half pepper jack and half cheddar cheese. And on my bfs I added grilled onion. It was soooo good.

That sounds amazing!

I made this tonight and it was incredible! The flavor combo was perfect. I used pita chips instead of tortilla chips, but I wouldn't recommend leaving out chips altogether. This perfect sandwich demands that extra crunch. I will definitely make this again.

Anna Belkind said...

Hi, WOW! This recipe is great! I used it in a Roojoom track about sandwiches, what do you think?

For goodness sake....this looks DELISH! Guac and Bacon are my favorite foods! (Not literally, I love all food way too much to have a favorite).

The gooier the better for me. Looks delicious.

Amit said...

ahh delicious post..
enjoyed eating it..

SarahN @ livetolist said...

Great lunch - though I did burn the bread trying to get the melty cheese (maybe I shouldn't have done it all in the frying pan from the bacon?)

Kevin Lynch said...

SarahN @ livetolist: I find that it helps to make sure that all of the ingredients are brought up to room temperature before grilling.
