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, 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 so I created this amazing Grilled California Club!

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, we all love it!

How to make a Grilled California Club:

To make the avocado ranch:

Mix the ranch dressing with the mashed avocado in a small bowl cookingwithcurls.com

Mash 1/2 of an avocado in a bowl, and add 1 cup of Ranch Dressing. Set aside.

Sometimes I cook my own chicken with garlic powder, onion powder, and Herbs de Provence on the stove…..

Or if you have more time on the grill….

and sometimes I just use a rotisserie chicken if I am in a hurry!

Slice chicken into strips.

Butter or oil the outsides of sourdough bread slices.

Spread ranch dressing on one slice of bread. Add chicken slices.

Top with bacon, cheese and avocado slices and the second slice of bread, butter side up.

Place sandwich in a panini grill, and cook until golden brown…..

Serve with additional dressing, if desired.

Notes:

  • If you do not have a panini grill, just grill your sandwich in a skillet…so simple!
  • I have an older version of this Panini Press. {affiliate link}
  • If you cannot find sourdough bread where you live, you can make your own with this recipe.
