For this month’s The Secret Recipe Club assignment, I received Amy’s Cooking Adventures. It’s hard to believe that Amy grew up not cooking at all, because her recipes now sound so delicious and the results look beautiful. I had a tough time choosing among Amy’s tasty recipes. Some of my favorites included Spinach & Artichoke Pizza, Yamburgers, Avocado, Cucumber, & Turkey Sandwich (maybe mashed chickpeas as a turkey substitute) and Heart Healthy Vegetable Alfredo. But I simply could not resist this recipe for Avocado & Egg Grilled Cheese … it looks and sounds fantastic. I’m not a big fan of runny egg yolks, so I couldn’t bring myself to do the over easy eggs, but I challenged myself a little bit and strayed away from my usual scrambled. Topped with fresh guacamole, cheese and spinach on homemade honey whole wheat bread, these delectable sandwiches are not your Mama’s grilled cheese. So incredible.

Ingredients for 4 sandwiches
To do the scrambled eggs, my husband makes the eggs sort of like an omelet. Whisk the eggs, pour them into the pan over medium-high heat. Once egg is set, fold the sides up to make the egg into a sandwich-sized patty and flip. Cook for another couple of minutes on the other side.Fry the remaining eggs over hard (or really however you’d like your eggs) over medium-high heat.
Meanwhile, butter one side of each slice of bread. On the unbuttered side of one slice, sprinkle half the cheese. Add the guacamole in large spoonsful, then spread it to the edges of the bread. Add the spinach leaves and the fried (or scrambled) egg. Top with the remaining cheese and slice of bread, buttered side up.Place the sandwiches 1 or 2 at a time into the hot skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until the bread is toasted, flip and cook and additional 1-2 minutes or until the bread is toasted and cheese is melted.
Oh my gosh, this is delicious! I already new I loved our guacamole, but I’d never thought to have it on an egg sandwich. Egg sandwiches are our favorite late night meals. I usually have the scrambled egg patty like the kids got here, but I decided to branch out and do the fried egg since we’d just gotten some farm fresh eggs. I absolutely love the white part of fried eggs…so crispy and delicious. And this time the yolk was pretty good, too. I’m not sure I could go all the way like Amy and fry it over easy…but maybe some day. The kids and adults all devoured these sandwiches. A definite repeat.
