All you need are 5 ingredients to make this sandwich come together! It works well for any meal of the day and has an excellent combination of fats, carbs, fiber and protein to keep you full.
This was one of the recipes I made while at home. I even made the bread! Oh, the things you can do when you have some time on your hands. I have a few bread recipes that I have saved over the years (note the years, lol. Yes, some of the recipes I want to try have been hanging around on my bookmark tabs for a long time. Don’t judge. Ok, nevermind, you can totally judge if you want to.)
However, it also doesn’t help that I don’t really eat much bread. I don’t eat sandwiches all that often. So, it would take me awhile to get through a loaf of bread on my own. Therefore, I knew home would be the perfect opportunity to make something like this.
In case you are interested. I mostly, sort of followed this bread recipe I found at Pastry Affair. Honestly, I’ve never been good at following recipes. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m more of a use-a-recipe-as-inspiration and throw my own thing together. However, this bread turned out nutty and dense and super yummy. It was even a hit with all of my family members. It was all like:
The post is not about the bread, though. That little spin off was me loving that I actually had time to do something, well, time-consuming that wasn’t work related. Haha. The post is for the recipe itself since it was my-oh-my good and wouldn’t want you to miss out on it.
As stated in the recipe notes below, you can use any bread or “bread” that you want. If you have never tried making bread before, the recipe above does not take a million hours, nor is very difficult, but I did have to add substantially more water, and left out a few grains…. If you want to try it out and want to know specifically what I changed, just let me know and I’d be happy to give you my input! The hardest part is waiting for all the steps to be complete. It’s all like:
As for the sandwich, smashing the avocado on the bread was the way I ended up preferring it and you want to make sure your cheese is melted! I ate this particular sandwich multiple times, but also tried it out with chicken, avocado, tomato and mustard and had a few slices of it heated and slathered with peanut butter. Major yum. I’m telling you, toasted bread and melty peanut butter is seriously my jam. [Hehe, no pun intended, or maybe just a little bit intended].
Have you ever tried making bread before?
Do you have recipes that you want to try, but just don’t have the time?
