2 sandwiches


  • 2 ripe avocados, halved and pitted

  • ½ small onion, minced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 Roma tomato, finely chopped

  • 4 slices Texas toast

  • 4 slices Havarti cheese

  • 2 teaspoons butter, or to taste


  1. Mash avocados in a large bowl. Add onion, lime juice, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined. Stir tomato into the guacamole.

  2. Spread desired amount of guacamole over 2 bread slices; top each with 2 slices Havarti cheese. Cover with the remaining 2 slices bread; butter the outsides.

  3. Heat a skillet to medium-high heat. Cook sandwiches until golden brown on the bottom, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and cook until other side is browned, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Cook's Notes:

Regular white bread can be substituted for the Texas toast if desired.

Cheddar cheese also works well in this recipe.
