Grilled Cheese w Avocado, Salsa, & Onions #grilledcheesemonth

I got a really fun Christmas gift from my brother- and sister-in-law: a three-month subscription to Hatchery. It's a service that delivers a selection of small-batch artisan food products to you each month. You never know exactly what you'll get so it's an impetus to experiment with new ingredients!

One of the items I received was a small jar of salsa from La Fundidora. I decided to use it on a grilled cheese sandwich (hey, it's still National Grilled Cheese Month). Those of you who know my Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich—with Avocado, Spinach, and Smoked Gouda—know I love a good grilled cheese. And, let me tell you, this new one is good. 

This sandwich may not be fancy, but it's delicious. And it's easy which, let's be honest, makes it more delicious!


  • 2 slices sprouted grain or whole wheat bread
  • 2 slices (2 ounces) sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 to 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • a few paper-thin slices of red onion
  • 2 to 3 Tbsp of salsa
  • about 2 tsp butter

Spread the salsa on each slice of bread (on what will be the inside of the sandwich). On top of one slice, layer a slice of cheese, then avocado, then the onion, then the other slice of cheese. Top with bread. I like to push down on the top of the sandwich and squish the avocado a bit. 

Spread 1 teaspoon of the butter on the top of the sandwich. Melt the other teaspoon of butter in a pan over medium-low heat. Add sandwich, unbuttered-side down. Cover and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and cover; cook until other side is golden and cheese is melted.
