Grilled Guacamole and Cheese

The quesadilla rocks its way north of the border as grilled cheese, sandwiched in sourdough bread and toasted until the cheese is gooey and melted and the bread is crisp.

Not very long ago I  was hungry for a nice quesadilla for lunch since I had a perfectly ripened avocado on hand plus some quesadilla cheese as well, but not everything goes as planned since I was out of flour tortillas and didn’t feel like running for them or taking the time to make those from scratch.

So instead I reached for my sourdough, which I like to keep fresh in the  fridge, as I often have it for breakfast with a poached egg and maybe a slice of goetta or bacon.

I mashed up the avocado with a little lime  juice, salt and a pinch of cumin, which  is the most basic of guacamole for me, leaving out any onion or tomato  since I wanted to keep it  simple.

This cooks up really fast. I  think  it would be great with a cumin spiked tomato soup maybe with a splash of ghost pepper sauce if you are a crazy chilehead like I am.

And do you see those bits of crunchy cheese? I made some extra on purpose to garnish the sandwich as well as nibble on. All you have to do is drop some cheese onto the griddle and it crisps up. It’s almost as good as the crispy edges of pepperoni on perfectly made pizza. Or the yummy bits of bacon that fall off a BLT. It’s the little things in life.

Grilled Guacamole and CheeseI have back  to back posts going up today so  make sure to check. I have roasted up some asparagus with speck ham and a creamy horseradish  sauce.  That is one  easy side dish that would be perfect for steak  or roast beef and a potato. Asparagus is at great prices right now. I wish it would stay that way but in a few short weeks, spring veggies will be on the way out. Enjoy it while you can!

I also have some more RSC recipes going up soon, as well as Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Praline sauce for Pecan Day and some slice and bake chocolate chip cookies for Sunday Supper. Make sure to check back in and see what’s up.
