Avocado Pesto Grilled Cheese

9

Let’s go over the components of my delicious grilled cheese. This grilled cheese should be called green grilled cheese, because everything on it aside from the cheese is green. I decided to have some greens on there that were quickly sautéed in some sunflower oil with some onions. It added a bit more of texture to my fairly mushy grilled cheese. Speaking of texture, grilled cheese on rye bread is AMAZING, because when rye bread is pan-cooked, it gets all hot and crispy and delicious. I will have

1
Rye bread
Butter or margarine for the outside of the bread
A fistful of fresh green salad (I used field greens)
1/4 cup minced onion
1 tsp sunflower oil
1/2 an avocado (depending on how much you like avocado, this may only be good for one sandwich. I originally made two during my first batch)
1 tbsp of freshly made pesto (ingredients include basil, garlic, olive oil, parm cheese, and almonds)
Mozzarella cheese!
Butter the outsides of your sandwich-to-be. This will keep the bread from burning and will make the outsides crispy and delicious. Mix together 1/2 an avocado and 1 tbsp of pesto, mashing it up to create a spread. Sauté the onions until translucent, and then add the greens. Sauté them just until they are wilted. Spread the avocado pesto onto one side of the sandwich, add the greens on top, then add the cheese last so when it melts, it sticks to the top side of the bread. Over medium low heat, cook the sandwich with the side of the avocado part down against the pan. Cover the pan with a lid (I like to "preheat" the sandwich before cooking on the cheese side. I find the cheese melts better). Once the bottom is nicely browned (with rye bread, you'll have lovely golden edges, and a nice golden middle), flip it over so the side of the bread closest is the cheese is on the bottom. Cook until golden, remove from pan, cut in half, and enjoy the ooey-gooey cheesiness that's spruced up with some bright pesto and mellow avocado.
