Caliente Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Have I mentioned how much my husband loves baseball?  We’ve had many memorable family moments at Citi Field since I became part of the Mets blogger program, and most recently, the first ever Mets Moms Panel.  With game day entertaining in mind, I recently created a tasty quick-to-make sandwich.

HolaAvocados are such a yummy addition to a traditional grilled cheese sandwich.  I’ve recently been purchasing Avocados from Mexico as they are available year-round.  I love incorporating this super food into my family’s meals as much as possible since they are packed with essential nutrients, nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, and healthy monounsaturated fat.

According to my husband, my caliente avocado grilled cheese sandwich is off the hook:
