Double recipe to make two sandwiches, which would increase avocado to one full avocado versus a half. You can also use one full avocado on one sandwich if you are like me and love avocados!

Substitute sourdough bread for the Italian bread, if desired. American cheese can be used in place of Cheddar cheese.
