Broiled Avocado Cheese Sandwich

Such a simple, yet satisfying, meal. We had this for lunch on a Saturday, but this could easily be taken as dinner with a salad on the side. You can make this quickly and have a hearty, warm lunch or dinner in just a few minutes. I used some homemade sourdough, which lent to its earthy back-to-basics simplicity.

Broiled Avocado Cheese Sandwich


Several pieces of thick sourdough bread
3 avocados, mashed
1 cup of vegan cheese or more, finely shredded - we used Follow Your Heart Vegan Gourmet, cheddar style


Make sure the top oven rack is in the second position from the top. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spread the mashed avocados evenly over the pieces of bread. Sprinkle the cheese liberally over the avocados. Bake for ten minutes. Turn top broiler on to melt the cheese. This should take about three or so minutes. Watch so it doesn't burn. Crispy edges are fine and tasty, though. So good. Feeds five hungry vegans.


  1. I love avocado toast so I love that you added cheese and broiled it all! I will have to try this the next time I have an avocado in the house.

  2. Thanks, Jenn! Let me know how you like it. :-)

  3. Mmm this is like a step up from the grill cheese sandwich. Never thought of adding avocado but I do love avocado on everything. Sounds like it would taste wonderful!

  4. I eat toasted avocado on sourdough bread all the time with a sprinkle of coarse salt and a grind of pepper. Adding cheese elevates it to a whole new level. Yay for avocados!!!

  5. Blessedmama,

    This is so easy and just right up my alley. After I make this will you give me permission to post it on my blog giving you all the credit? I must make this next week. Loved it.

  6. I'm more impressed by the homemade sourdough and that you know how to use a broiler. Pretty pic too.

  7. I love this sandwich, we make in on occasion in our house as well.

  8. Helloooo, everyone!

    Jacklyn, this was so good. You have to try it.

    Andrea, I had never heard of putting avocado on toast before. I just had the avocados on the counter, and said, hmmm. :-)

    Millie, of course! I hope you like it.

    S.V., Thank you, thank you. When I perfect my sourdough recipe, I'll post that too.

    Brenda, what a great idea! I had never heard of it until I "created" it. :-)

    Sarah, tell me about it!

  9. Hmmm. Avocados on the counter must have been kind of crunchy. Toast is much better.

  10. Ok, you've convinced me: this looks super yummy, especially on sourdough, my favorite type of bread...and homemade too? Yum!

  11. that looks ridiculously good:)i would not be able to keep to one serving! when i read this post it reminded me of some classic books ive read, where they have really simple meals of whole foods.:)

  12. I have never thought of adding avocado on a hot sandwich - but this looks really good! :) I'll keep your recipe in mind the next time I'm left with a bag of avocados, not knowing what to do with all of them.

  13. Andrea, Yes, that counter was surprisingly crunchy! And bits of counter between teeth is not a good thing, believe me.

    Rose, we were very pleased with this surprise dish I came up with. Don't listen to Andrea!

    Michelle, I know, that's how I felt too. I just couldn't find my bonnet.

    Seglare, I never thought of it before, either, but it was quite tasty and satisfying.

  14. This sounds and looks wonderful! I'm going to have to try this out. Now I just need to make some sourdough bread, which I've never done. :o)

  15. Have fun, Michelle, and let me know how you like it!
