Ingredients

  • 2 slices thick bread I used Texas toast
  • 1 avocado
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tomato slices
  • 3 thin deli-style mozzarella cheese slices
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter softened to spread

Instructions

  • Place two slices of bread on a plate or flat surface.
  • Cut avocado in half and remove pit. Scoop contents into a small bowl and mash with fork.
  • Spread avocado evenly onto each bread slice and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place two slices of cheese on top of the avocado on one slice of bread, then add tomato slices, followed by the third slice of cheese.
  • Put the second bread slice on top of the sandwich and spread 1 tablespoon of softened butter evenly over the top of bread, coating to the edges.
  • Heat a small skillet over medium heat and place the sandwich, buttered side down, onto skillet. Butter the slice of bread that is facing up. Cook sandwich over medium heat, 3-4 minutes per side, or until crust is golden and cheese starts to melt.
