California Classic Grilled Cheese

Featuring plenty of salted butter and delicious Cabot Pepper Jack Cheese, our classic avocado tomato grilled cheese is an incredibly tasty dish, and it’s sure to be a winner in your home. Our recipe makes two servings, and is quite easy to prepare. It features plenty of healthy ingredients, such as vine-ripened tomatoes and avocado, but it also features some of our popular pepper jack cheese and salted butter to really crank up the flavor factor. We suggest making this sandwich for lunch, but you can also make it for dinner too—if you decide to make grilled cheese sandwiches for dinner, pair the sandwiches with fresh tomato soup. The combination is absolutely to-die-for!
