Ingredients of Grown Up Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread
  • 2 slices white American cheese
  • 4 thin slices tomato

Directions for Grown Up Grilled Cheese Sandwich:

  1. Preheat skillet on medium heat.
  2. Spread 1/2 tablespoon butter onto one side of each slice of bread to cover evenly. With buttered sides of the bread facing out, layer 1 slice American cheese, 2 slices tomato, and 2 slices avocado onto each of 2 of the bread slices. Sprinkle about half the basil, red pepper flakes, and garlic salt atop the avocado layer. Finish by topping each with half the mozzarella and 1 slice provolone.

  3. Cook in hot skillet until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
