Any other avocado lovers out there? I loooove avocados! I think I hated them til I was about 23 or 24 and then I discovered what real guacamole tasted like (not the fake stuff you buy in a tub with preservatives and garbage) and I have never been able to turn back. I try to keep them on hand for this yummy avocado sandwich I'm sharing with you today and also for guacamole, bean dip (which FYI is not required to be made to look like a spiderweb), etc.
A few weeks ago our local Sprouts had avocados 3/$1, which was a steal, so I bought 9. And don't you worry, we put them to good use and ate them all up before they could go bad. I had this sandwich multiple times that week.
My friend Becky, introduced me to this sandwich one day when we met them at their pool. It's so simple to make. It's good for you and tastes delicious. I love that! You simply toast some bread, butter it, top it with whatever cheese you want, some sliced avocado, salt/pepper, lime juice, and your choice of spinach, lettuce or sunflower sprouts (which add an incredible nutty flavor). You can make it in 2 minutes or so and it just hits the spot for me any afternoon.
I hope you'll love it as much as I do.
Yield: 1 Sandwich
2 slices bread, toasted & buttered
1-2 slices cheese (any kind, I usually use Colby, Monterey Jack or Provolone)
1 small avocado, sliced
sea salt & pepper, sprinkled to taste
½ lime, juiced
Spinach, lettuce or sunflower sprouts
Toast two peice of sandwich bread and butter the sides that will be inside the sandwich. Top one of the buttered sides with cheese, and sliced avocado (I use ½-1 avocado), sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper to taste, and drizzle with lime juice. Top with spinach, lettuce or sunflower sprouts (I love the nutty flavor from the sunflower sprouts) and the remaining piece of toasted bread.
