avocado strawberry + goat cheese sandwich

I am about to show you something that is way too much fun.

And amazingly delicious!

Maybe sandwiches aren’t what you call fun but this may change that.

Remember last week when I was talking about how I only like avocado mixed in things or made into guacamole?  Please disregard that statement.  Apparently for me a sprinkle of salt is the key.

After our Sunday bike ride, gardening, house cleaning, and still being wiped from Saturday’s hike, all of a sudden I needed food fast!  Like right this very instant, fast.

I mashed up an avocado with salt, threw 2 slices of bread in the toaster, and slathered it on.

I know a million people have made avocado toast before.  Probably everyone but me! 

But today we take avocado toast to the next level with a few simple variations.  And now I will be eating this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, until strawberries are no longer in season.

But then I’ll just move to the next berry that is.

Two variations are hot + two are cold.  Two are vegan + two are not.  Take your pick or make one of each.

I melted a rich + creamy goat’s milk mozzarella over top.  I’m sure a regular goat cheese will work perfectly, it just won’t melt quite the same.  If you can find a goat mozz or goat cheddar, I highly recommend giving it a try!

Open-faced sandwiches used to be a childhood favorite.

But you always have the option to smash it into a sandwich.

Avocado Strawberry + Goat Cheese Sandwich [cold]

  • 2 slices of bread [my favorite GF brand is Udi’s]
  • 1 avocado
  • 4 medium strawberries, thinly sliced
  • 2-4T goat’s milk mozzarella, crumbled
  • 1t lemon juice
  • 1/8t salt
  • black pepper + sea salt to top
  1. Toast the bread and place on a cooling rack [avoids sogginess] to stay crisp but not hot. 
  2. Mash the avocado with a fork and then mash in the lemon juice + salt.
  3. Add as much avocado to the toast as desired and add 1 layer of thinly sliced strawberries.
  4. Top with salt, pepper, and about 1T crumbled goat cheese per slice.

notes: Amount of bread needed will vary depending on desired amount of avocado used + size of bread.  Use more strawberries if needed.  Omit cheese for a vegan option.

  • 1T balsamic vinegar

  3. Mash the avocado with a fork and then mash in the lemon juice + salt.
  4. Add oil to a small pan over medium heat. 
  5. Once hot, add the strawberries + balsamic, cooking for 3-5min until softened but not falling apart.  Stir/flip a few times.
  6. Add as much avocado to the toast as desired and add 1 layer of cooked strawberries.
  7. Top with a thin layer of goat cheese.
  8. Broil until melted, about 1-3min.  If you’re using more of a crumbly goat cheese, be careful it doesn’t burn.
