- You want the butter at room temperature so that it is easy to spread on the slices of bread. Alternatively, you can melt the butter in the skillet before you place the bread on top. I also like using olive oil (instead of butter) to make grilled cheese sandwiches. Just heat the oil in the skillet and place the sandwiches on top.
- I find that 1/3 cup of shredded cheese is enough for each sandwich. Feel free to add more or less if you like.
- Covering the pan allows the cheese to melt faster. When I first tested the recipe, I forgot about this trick and my bread was burnt by the time the cheese melted. Don’t make the same mistake I did.
- I like adding the avocado after the cheese has melted because the avocado mash stays vibrant green.
