Turkey Kumato Avocado Melt

23 Apr

I bought Kumato tomatoes from Trader Joe’s and they are yummy! Pretty to look at and sweet tasting. Perfect for this sandwich. It is National Grilled Cheese Month and I’m a bit late to celebrate, but there’s still time. This sandwich is sort of a form of grilled cheese though, right 🙂


  • 2 slices whole wheat bread (or bread of your choice)
  • 2 thin slices of herb roasted turkey
  • 1 slice cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced in thin strips
  • 1/2 Kumato tomato, sliced thin (if you can’t find this variety, other tomatoes will work)
  • 1/2 tbsp butter (can use oil or even cooking spray if you prefer)

How to make it

  • Assemble sandwich: slice of bread, cheese, turkey, tomato, avocado, slice of bread.
  • Heat butter in skillet over medium heat. Place sandwich in skillet veggie side down just for a moment, then turn cheese side down. Turn heat down to medium-low and cover. Cook for about 2-3 minutes, checking occasionally that the bread isn’t becoming too browned. Once cheese begins to melt, flip and cover again. Cook for another 2 minutes, again being sure to toast bread too much.
  • Remove from skillet, cut on the diagonal and enjoy as is or with your favorite condiments. I enjoy Trader Joe’s Aioli Garlic Mustard Sauce.
