Avocado Melt

Recipe from: Food Farm

Stop at The Food Farm in San Diego for a healthy twist on classic dishes such as Grass Fed Sliders, an Avocado Melt Sandwich and a yummy Coconut Rice Desert.

Watch the episode
2 slices thick whole wheat bread
Arugula walnut pesto (see below)
2 slices Swiss cheese
1/2 avocado, sliced
Crisp bacon (optional)

Smear pesto onto one side of each slice of bread. Top with the Swiss cheese. Place non-cheese side of bread slices onto hot grill or pan to toast and melt cheese (tenting the bread helps to steam and cook faster). Once the cheese is melted place sliced avocado & bacon onto cheese. Close sandwich and enjoy!
