Turkey Avocado Grilled Cheese

turkey, avocado, grilled cheese, parmesan

Grilled Cheese month continues!  And with the recent bout of cold weather, comfort food really hits the spot.  Grilled cheese is always a favorite in this household.  Even the cat loves to nibble off of our sandwiches.  She has good taste.

I love the contrast of textures in this sandwich.  The inside of the sandwich is soft and chewy while the outside is crispy and buttery.  Plus the addition of Parmesan onto the buttered bread puts this sandwich over the top.  I will absolutely keep doing this to grilled cheese sandwiches in the future!  Why haven’t I done this before?!

Turkey Avocado Grilled Cheese


  • 4 slices bread (we like sourdough or multigrain)
  • 2 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced turkey
  • 1 avocado thinly sliced
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese


  1. Butter one side of each slice of bread. Sprinkle the Parmesan on the buttered bread. Place buttered sides of two bread slices in a frying pan. Bring pan to medium heat. Arrange a slice of mozzarella cheese, turkey, avocado, and a second mozzarella slice of cheese on bread slices, dividing evenly.
  2. Arrange other slices of bread on sandwiches, butter side up. Cover pan with a lid and cook over medium heat until the underside of the sandwich is crunchy-golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Lift sandwiches, flip, cover and cook until second side is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes more.
