St. Patrick’s Day Lunch: Green Grilled Cheese Sandwich
This morning my 3-year old daughter very convincingly announced that she was wearing her pink gingerbread outfit to daycare today – St. Patrick’s Day. “Look, Mom, this little candy twist has a stripe of green on it.” Who can argue with that? Plus, I had to admire her conviction.
So, as I read my Facebook friends’ comments today about making traditional Irish recipes (save my sister who is making Italian meatballs), I am enjoying a delicious St. Patrick’s Day lunch of grilled cheddar and “green” avocado sandwich. Taking a cue from my daughter, “Look, this little bit of my sandwich has a bit of green in it.” It sure is delicious.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
“Green” Grilled Cheese Sandwiche Recipe
- 2 slices of sliced bakery sourdough bread
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 1/2 slices of English Cheddar cheese
- Spreadable butter
Directions: Mush avocado on a slice of bread. Add cheese slices and top with 2nd slice of bread. Butter both sides. Pop in the toaster oven (or on a skillet). When one side browns, flip and repeat. Yum!
