Avocado & Egg Grilled Cheese

I just shared my new favorite Bacon Guacamole Sandwich, so I’d thought I’d also share its Vegetarian Friday counterpart!

Of course, one could simply omit the bacon from the previous sandwich, but I like to add a fried egg for extra protein and flavor.  Serve with a bowl of tomato soup for lunch or with fruit for breakfast!

Recipe Notes:
*I love the way the yolk oozes in to the rest of the sandwich, but if you’re not a fan, scramble your eggs instead.

Avocado & Egg Grilled Cheese

1 egg
2 slices whole wheat bread
¼ cup shredded Cheddar Jack cheese, divided
Small handful spinach leaves, roughly shredded
Butter or margarine

Heat a small skillet over medium-high heat.   Fry the egg over easy and set aside.

 Meanwhile, butter one side of each slice of bread. 

On the unbuttered side of one slice, sprinkle half the cheese.  Add the guacamole in large dollops, then spread it to the edges of the bread.    Then add the spinach leaves and the fried egg.  Top with the remaining cheese and slice of bread, buttered side up.

Place the sandwich into the hot skillet.  Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the bread is toasted, flip and cook and additional 1-2 minutes or until the bread is toasted and cheese is melted.  Serve immediately with a side of tomato soup.
