But this week I got a little creative and this is what I did:
You'll need the following and you can adapt it however you want:
- bacon (Turkey bacon or regular or not at all if you don't want... I just liked the smokey, salty addition)
- avocado (about 1/3 per sandwich)
- fresh purple basil (whole leaves)
- 2 kinds of cheese (I used white cheddar and Turkish kasar)
- butter or margarine
- garlic powder
- dried dillweed
- dried oregano
- dijon mustard
- cayenne pepper
Okay... I baked my bacon so that it didn't crinkle or curl and was just easier to work with.
I mixed all the dry spices with enough margarine to spread on the slices of bread that I used (whole wheat for me... trying to make it somewhat healthy)
Then I layed one slice of the buttered bread in a pan that wasn't on the heat yet (I like to build my sandwiches before heating so that the cheese gets all melty). I then spread the avocado onto the bread and put on one layer of the cheese. Then I added the basil and bacon and the last layer of cheese. Before I added the last slice of bread I added the dijon mustard to the inside of the bread.
Grilling is a little tricky with something so stacked unless you have a panini press, and I don't so it was tricky but turned out great and made me want to think of a billion different variations! Enjoy!
