Happy Grilled Cheese Day! Okay, this isn’t actually a grilled cheese sandwich, but it is close…..
Grilled cheese is not something we normally serve in this house, as you have probably already figured out. But I do still love cheese…though I shouldn’t. I have been advised to avoid it, but I have never been one to listen! You have probably already guessed that as well:)
I’m not exactly sure why I am calling this a California Club, I think it is probably because it contains avocado. That seems to be the golden standard for naming recipes a “California” something. I have made this several times, and you may notice that the pictures do not always match up, this sandwich was made with avocado ranch dressing…
This one has the avocados, but no ranch…
To make the avocado ranch…
Mash 1/2 of an avocado in a bowl, and add 1 cup of ranch dressing.
Sometimes I cook my own chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, and Herbs de Provence…
and sometimes I just use a rotisserie chicken…
okay so I would slice the chicken, not shred it…..but this is the only photo I could find…..you get the idea:)
If you do not have a panini grill, just grill your sandwich in a skillet…so simple!
If you need a sourdough bread recipe, it is here:
