Bacon, Tomato & Guacamole Grilled Cheese

Oh, do I ever love a good sandwich.  Hats off to the inventor, he has given me many, many meals.  Last night was no exception.

With the husband working and the kids in bed, I invited a girlfriend over for some wine and sandwiches.  Two of my loves.  We had a fun time chatting about her recent wedding and just catching up.  I'm not even mentioning what we had for dessert, as that is a whole 'nother post.

So, one of my favorite sandwich memories, is a story I've heard often, but wasn't even there to witness.  My husband has an aunt who is a prankster.  You always have to be looking behind your back when she is around, as you could be the victim at any given moment.

I've heard the story over the years that she was usually in charge of making sandwiches when her husband, uncles, nephews, etc. went on fishing trips.  Being the jokester that she is, she would leave the plastic wrapping around the Kraft cheese singles when layering their ham sandwiches.

Imagine their shock and bewilderment when they took their first bite!  Not very easy to bite through plastic wrapping.  I'm sure they all just rolled their eyes and yelled "Susie!", and then moved on to catching their fish.

Now to my grilled cheese creation.  Gosh, it was good.  We both claimed we probably won't make just a simple grilled cheese ever again, they were that good.

Bacon, Tomato & Guacamole Grilled Cheese
Focaccia bread
Kraft Swiss and Sharp Cheddar Cheese
Guacamole {2 avocados, 1/2 c.sour cream, 1/2 c. salsa, salt, pepper}

Preheat a panini press or grill top pan.  Assemble sandwiches - bacon, tomato, cheeses, guacamole spread on both slices of bread.  Spray the press with cooking spray.  Grill until golden brown and cheese is melted.

We both claimed we'd only eat one half of this and save the rest for later.  That didn't happen.  We devoured both halves.

A big thanks to Foodbuzz and Kraft for allowing me to create this sandwich.  As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a coupon for free Kraft Singles and a stipend.

What would you put on your dream grilled cheese?
