My goal was to combine two of my favorite foods, guacamole and grilled cheese. I made a simple, yet tasty, guacamole that doesn’t overshadow the deliciousness of Tillamook Monterey Jack Cheese. The result? A creamy, fresh-tasting grilled cheese unlike anything you’ve ever tried!
- 6 slices Goldminer California Sourdough Square Bread*
- 6 slices Tillamook Monterey Jack Cheese
- 3 medium-sized avocados
- 6 tablespoons Tillamook Unsalted Butter
- juice of half a small lime
- ½ of a jalapeno, roasted and rough chopped
- 1 tablespoon green onion, sliced (green part only)
- 1 teaspoon red onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ⅛ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
To Roast Jalapeno:
Cut jalapeno in half, and remove seeds and ribs. Place on a small baking sheet lined with foil. Put baking sheet underneath the broiler and roast for 5 minutes, or until skin is bubbly and darkened. Immediately place in a small bowl and cover with saran wrap. After five minutes, remove jalapeno and remove the outer skin. Chop one of the jalapeno halves and set aside.
To Make Guacamole:
Scoop the center of 3 medium-sized avocados into a small bowl and gently mash together, leaving it fairly chunky. Add the fresh lime juice, green and red onion, garlic and jalapeno and mix. Add salt and pepper.
To Make the Grilled Cheese:
Preheat a non-stick skilled on medium heat. Butter one side of three slices of bread. Spread 3 tbsp. guacamole on each of the dry sides of the bread. Place buttered side of bread with guacamole down in preheated pan. Top with two slices of cheese and second slice of bread. Butter the top of the bread. Cook for two-three minutes, until bottom side of the bread is golden brown. Flip the sandwich over with a spatula, and cook and additional 2 minutes. Again, until the bread is golden brown. Allow grilled cheese to sit for one minute before butting in half.
