Overstuffed Avocado Egg & Cheese Melt

Ohhh yeah! I brought out the big guns for breakfast. This...I'm going to admit, you can't eat everyday (Well I think it depends on your lifestyle...and I'm no dietitian. I'm just saying)! But when you want that guilty pleasure, why not? I know some of you guys have cheat days.  But honestly don't get too deep into it by having a greasy bacon, sausage and egg fest.  This has a whopping 656 calories. But honestly if you ever want to make it more frequently or with less caloric intake, you can do so by halving the amount of avocado and eggs and/or cheese....even just using one piece of bread instead of two.

Overstuffed Avocado Egg & Cheese Melt

Ingredients

  • 2 slices of whole grain wheat bread
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp shredded Colby & Monterrey Jack cheeses
  • 1/2 Roma tomato (plum tomato), sliced thin
  • 2 large eggs, scrambled
  • 1 medium avocado, smashed
  • salt and pepper for taste (salt of course is optional)
Skipping the salt?  Try boosting the flavor of your meals with herbs and spices.  I recommend the All-Purpose Blends: Take a look 

Instructions

  1. Heat up a medium sized non-stick saute pan on medium heat.
  2. Butter both breads on one side.
  3. Place one of the buttered side bread down.
  4. Sprinkle on half the cheese.
  5. Spread half of the mashed avocado onto bread with the back of a spoon. 
  6. Add half of the sliced tomatoes.
  7. Then add the scrambled eggs.
  8. Top off with the rest of the sliced tomatoes.
  9. Now, this is the tricky part...Sorry!  Spread of the rest of the avocado and cheese.
  10. Place the 2nd piece of bread on top.
  11. Once the bread browns on one side...ahhhh!  You can do it!  Turn the sandwich over!
  12. Brown the other side for one minute or less.
  13. Remove from heat onto a cutting board and cut the sandwich in half with a serrated knife (very important).
  14. And serve :)
  15. Honestly I wish you good luck.  This may be messy!  But it's sooo worth it!
