This avocado bacon grilled cheese sandwich is the ultimate lunch. Crispy bacon, creamy avocado, and cheese slices piled onto grilled Texas toast! This post has been sponsored by Sargento®.
Have you ever had a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon? How about avocado? There’s no need for sauce when you have gooey cheese and creamy avocado on your sandwich—it’s delicious!
I started adding avocado on my hot sandwiches when I worked at a restaurant during college. I’d order a turkey melt and decided to add a few slices of avocado. The cooks probably thought I was strange, but it was delicious and became one of my regular orders on my lunch break. It’s been almost 20 years since I worked at that restaurant, and avocado turkey melt sandwiches are still a thing in our house. I thought I’d switch it up with bacon—because you can’t ever go wrong with bacon and the result was incredible.
My boys both like pepper jack cheese, so I picked up a package of Sargento® Blends™ 4 Cheese Southwest Slices from Harris Teeter for them to try. Not only does it include pepper jack but it is also a blend of Monterey jack, chipotle cheddar, and Colby cheese. Sargento Slices are 100% real, natural cheese and come in three varieties: Slices, Ultra Thin, and Blends. I also picked up a couple of large avocados and bacon along with my other grocery items. Harris Teeter is one of my favorite grocery stores. They have an excellent produce section and the employees are super friendly. My kids also like the free sugar cookies that they have near the front door (of course!).
