About This Avocado Sandwich

An avocado sandwich is a filling bread snack that can be made when you are super busy and want something to munch on in a jiffy. All you need is a ripe avocado and some bread. If you want you can pair the toast with some cheese, Hummus or tahini.

The bread that I have used here is white bread. But you can also make these sandwiches with brown bread or whole wheat bread or any other type of bread.

I have toasted the sandwich in the pan. If you have a hand toaster or sandwich grill, you can even use these or even bake them in the oven.

There is already a Guacamole Recipe on my blog. If you are interested you can have a look. In this guacamole recipe I have added olive oil just to enhance its taste and also because I love olive oil. Another recipe, where you can include avocado in your diet is Avocado Toast.

Always be creative when you make food and remember you add your own creative touch to this guacamole sandwich as well, like adding baby tomatoes or dry tomatoes or herbs or any seasonings or spices.

Step-by-Step Guide

How to make Avocado Sandwich

Preparing the Avocado Filling

1. Take a ripe avocado on a chopping board. With a knife give a cut at the center moving around the entire avocado. Remove the seed and cut the avocado into halves.

2. Remove the ripe pulp with the help of a spoon and discard the seed. Take the avocado pulp in a big bowl.

3. Then add the following ingredients to the avocado pulp:

  • 1 small to medium-sized onion (about ¼ to ⅓ cup finely chopped)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves (cilantro). Instead of coriander you can add parsley.
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon finely chopped green chilies (or 1 teaspoon chopped jalapeño pepper)

Making Avocado Sandwich

9. Grilling or toasting these sandwiches are optional. You can simply spread the guacamole filling on lightly buttered bread and make the sandwiches.

To toast the sandwiches you can do so on a skillet or frying pan or an electric toaster or panini press.

Here I show you how to grill the avocado sandwiches in a pan. First heat the pan on medium flame. I have used a grill pan to toast the guacamole sandwiches.

Note: You can also toast these sandwiches in an oven. For toasting in the oven, do check the notes section below in the recipe card.

10. Spread the guacamole stuffing on the bread slices. If you want you can lightly brush the bread with olive oil or spread some softened butter on the bread.

You can use any type of sandwich bread. For a healthier version use whole meal bread or multi grain bread or rye bread.

13. Check after 2 to 3 minutes and then flip the sandwich. The bottom side of the sandwich can be lightly toasted or fully toasted according to your preferences.

14. You can also drizzle some butter or olive oil and toast the sandwich on the pan. I have toasted the sandwich with butter and without butter. Both ways they taste good.

15. Check if the second side has been toasted by turning over the sandwich. Then remove the toasted avocado sandwich. Similar way assemble and then toast the other sandwiches with or without butter or olive oil until golden.
