Avocado and Cheese Toasties

Avocado and Cheese Toasties
This morning my 3 year old declared that avocado was yucky, and he didn't want any today... Most days we share a salad and he and his brother eat up heaps of avocado, cheese and cucumber. I'd already cut up a bunch of avocado, and here he was refusing to eat it. 

Well he was still gonna, haha! I mashed some up and made one of these amazing Avocado and Cheese Toasties! They were a big hit, and he ate more avocado today than he normally would. Little brother loved them too. I will definitely be making these all the time for us and the kids.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp mashed avocado
  • A few slices of cheddar cheese (enough for one sandwich)
  • 2 slices wholemeal bread
  • 1 tbsp butter

Method

Spread your slices of bread with butter.

Mash avocado using a fork until it's mushy and smooth.

Place one piece of bread, butter side down, into your sandwich press.

Spread avocado evenly on the slice of bread in the sandwich press.

Cover avocado evenly with cheese slices.

Add the other piece of bread on top, butter side up.

Close the sandwich press and cook until golden brown.

Let cool for a few minutes before serving.

Makes one.


DID YOU KNOW...

  • Most of the nutrients in an avocado are concentrated in the dark green flesh closest to the peel. By scooping the flesh out of an avocado, most of this highly nutritious flesh is left behind. The best way to ensure you aren't losing the best part of the avocado is to gently peel the skin off rather than scoop it out. Cut your avocado in half lengthways so they are held together by the pit, then gently twist to separate the two halves. Cut each half again so you have quarters, then gently peel the skin back from the flesh like you would a banana.
  • Cheese is among the richest dietary sources of calcium, which plays an essential role in bone health.
